Aesop After Darwin: The Radical Anthropomorphism of "The Far Side"

“It is true, of course, that the ‘Far Side’s’ famous cows are not always so secretive; sometimes they even make fun of us, as if getting revenge for all those times that passing car passengers–usually children, like the calf in this cowmobile–‘mooed’ derisively at them when they were behind the fence. But for the most part the secret life of animals remains secret, and seemingly anthropomorphic.” —Aesop After Darwin: The Radical Anthropomorphism of “The Far Side”Elias Canetti)
