His sense of humor is great!


Have you ever read the legal furor surrounding this cartoon?

No - I just read this in Wikipedia.

One of Larson's more famous cartoons shows a chimpanzee couple grooming. The female finds a blonde human hair on the male and inquires, "Conducting a little more 'research' with that Jane Goodall tramp?" The Jane Goodall Institute thought that this was in bad taste and had their lawyers draft a letter to Larson and his distribution syndicate, in which they described the cartoon as an "atrocity".
They were stymied by Jane Goodall herself, who was in Africa at the time. When she returned and saw the cartoon, she stated that she found it amusing and later personally met Larson. Since then, all profits from sales of a shirt featuring this cartoon go to the Goodall Institute.
Goodall wrote a preface to The Far Side Gallery 5, detailing her version of the "Jane Goodall Tramp" controversy. She praised Larson's creative ideas, which often compare and contrast the behavior of humans and animals. In 1988, Larson visited Gombe Stream National Park and was attacked by Frodo, a chimp described by Goodall as a "bully." Larson sustained cuts and bruises from the encounter.

I don't know that one, what is it? I'm too unawakened to perform a search for it.

We couldn't have such a thread without mentioning 'The Far Side', by Gary Larson. Some of his humor was considered controversial, like the attached example. But Jane Goodall LOVED this one, and asked Larson if she could use it on t-shirts to generate money for her projects and, of course, he agreed.


From 2012.

I'm booting this up to date - how bemusing! ;-)
