i feel like this was already a far side
possibly thirty far sides
Hot Soup Man comes once a year on Halloween, scalding children with soup made from the bones of last year's children. Moms provide their eager kids with money to pay the Hot Soup Man for his services, so that they can be rid of their darned nuisance kids once and for all. Can't have those little _____'s interrupting while you're doing the dishes!
I have no idea why this is any funnier than the previous two, other than Rule of Three.
But I'm upvoting it because of peer pressure.
It can't be a far side there are no cows.
i'm the cow
I hate you.
The cow is in the soup.
Or women with tall hair and oval spectacles.
COMIN' THROUGH HOT SOUP
Am I the only one who thinks this would be a great idea in winter? Without the pouring on people and the third degree burns, of course.
There are actually trucks that come around with breakfast and coffee and such for workers in a bunch of Chicago's industrial areas, so I can only imagine someone's slingin' soup too.
and not a frown in sight
Because their disfigured faces no longer have the capacity, nor the ability to smile…
I scream, you scream, we all scream because it's melting our flesh off.
This does not seem to be a very sound business plan XD
You're right. With gas prices what they are, Hot Soup Man is starting to consider ditching the mobile kitchen and setting up a drive-thru stand: you pull up to the window, pay your money, and he fills your passenger compartment with boiling chowder.
He'd just seen Drogo's "crowning" of Viserys by pouring molten gold onto his head the night before and realised the business potential.
It appears to be some kind of noodle soup. That's good because hot pasta sticks to the scalded flesh better than plain vegetables.
Nah, this is definitely a PBF.
I used to love The Far Side. Then a year ago I looked at all my old collections again, and realized that nine out of ten of them are just bad puns that Gary Larson probably threw together in a state of extreme sleep deprivation.
And THAT is why the Far Side is awesome!
You're thinking of asparagus dood.
There was a far side with the asparagus man.
I cuss, you cuss
we all cuss, for asparagus
I'm just loving the last panel.
Ummm… we have a soup truck in our town… Stone Soup Foodworks… so I don't see what's so weird about this is. http://www.gazette.uottawa.ca/article/Stone_Soup_…
See, it's funny because a guy pours hot soup on someone, and not at all random in a ridiculous way that we don't like. Because it's way better than the Oatmeal. Classy n' shit.
Love the post. I wanted to find out if you would consider using posts from guest bloggers sometime?
The Far Side did have a Liver and Onions truck that the kids hid from. A bit different.
