I decided to search for a funny farm-related comic because documentaries about Monsanto are such a downer. I found a whole lot more good “The Far Side” comics but I have to decide which ones are my favourite. apparently Gary Larson liked cows!
This Comic was originally run on March 23rd 1989. that’s all the bibliographic info I could find on it.

While diving into the depths of research for one of my blog posts, I cam across this streeters video. since we’re doing a streeters video for class and the topic is very relevant, I figure I’d share!!
It’s become a reaction for me to automatically think of this class when I get jokes like these in my email…
One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister’s house for the traditional feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick. She told my sister that she needed something from the store. When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back in the oven. When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.
With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, “Sonja” you’ve cooked a pregnant bird!” At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry. It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!
…….. Yep ……………. SHE’S BLONDE!
I found this comic and thought it was too good not to share. Hopefully no one thinks I’m quite this clueless. I originally stumbled across just the quote from this comic and then spent the next hour and a half of my life trying to find out a) where it was from and b) finding the comic. It was a bit of an effort, but I think it was time well wasted.
So that I don’t get in trouble, it’s from “Dilbert”. A popular comic strip about the mundane life of an office worker. It appeared in newspapers on December 23, 2002. I eventually found the whole strip on www.dilbert.com, in the archive of past strips. Hopefully that’s a good enough citation.
