If you havn't seen the Gary Larson comic, try viewing it here.

I hope everybody likes it. The crayons and half apple in the window are probably distracting, but its just for laughs.

The photo is appropriately named - but not very original for the competition

very funny, the line of the door jamb is a little distracting. I like the high waters

HAHAHAA a classic. Love it! Points for humor! By far my favorite far side cartoon (school for the gifted). Captures theme of "book smarts" vs "street smarts" perfectly.

Hilarious. I wish the 'pushing' wasn't so over to top though.

Maybe the original comic had the guy bent over like that. Not sure it's working for you here. Think if the other pant leg were as pulled up you'd have captured the smart nerd thing better. Shot really needs a contrast increase.

Yeah midvale school for the gifted
11/22/2007 06:29:44 AM
My fav! Cracks me up!

This is fantastic - love the humour (I'm British, we spell it like that ;-)
I think if you'd done it in b/w, it would have been a killer.

Still my all time favourite Larson cartoon and so this made me smile just by opening it. Shame you could not get a midvale school for the gifted displayed in the window.

Suffers a bit as some of the colours seem a tad washed out and the reflection in the window is a bit distraction (but I appreciate it is hard to do anything about this especially in basic

Thanks for the smile
