Don’t confuse Gary LarsOn of The Far Side with Gary LarsEn, the befuddled, bespectacled gamer

October 2, 2012

So playing Riddle of the Sphinx on your Atari reduced you to a quivering, brain-dead mound of flesh. Even if you were poor Gary Larsen, he of the 162 IQ. Huh. Good to know. (He must have an IQ of 162, because LOOK HE HAS BOOKS. SO MANY BOOKS HE ACTUALLY HAS SHELVES FOR BOOKS.)

Oddly enough, that look on his defeated mug is one I’ve had before, after hours of trying to figure out some of the more opaque Far Side cartoons. It all comes full circle.
