    Are we supposed to know who Professor Jenkins is?

    Sometimes (as in this case) I didn't get the joke, where the Far Side was concerned. But when I got it, I always enjoyed it a lot.


No you are not supposed to know who Professor Jenkins is.

All you know is that he has met this duck before and earned his enmity. Which is absurd. Which is why it's supposed to be funny.

But now that I've spelled it out it won't ever be funny again \:\(




I always thought you were supposed to make the joke yourself. Bronze Tiger's "story" might be funnier than mine, which might be funnier than Paste Pot Pete's, which might be funnier than Rev's, and so on. \:\)

No one's supposed to know or tell the story. Everyone's imagination is supposed to take hold and take you to places you've never imagined existed. \:\)
