Carl Fink: Overdone what? What is supposed to be happening here?


  1. My immediate thought was liposuction that was taken too far. I’m pretty sure that’s what it is, since I can’t really think of anything else.

  2. Maybe a colonic irrigation? That would imply that she was full of …

  3. My thought was that he had that overhead lamp on too high while he was examining her, and she melted.

  4. I second the liposuction idea.

  5. I don’t think it matters what “it” was… The joke is that the doctor’s looking at a patient in this state, and is only now tentatively considering the possibility that he may have made a mistake.

  6. Looks like the poor woman has had an osteoectomy.

  7. I immediately thought liposuction as well. The doctor sucked everything out of the woman.

  8. I just figured she’s been de-boned.

  9. Botox maybe? All of her muscles have been completely paralyzed?

  10. But if you take the BONES out, she won’t be CRUNCHY!

  11. My thought was plastic surgery, and they plasticized everything – which melted under the head lamp, but then she’d be a skeleton wearing skin. So I’m confused too.

  12. My Theory Is… that meanwhile around 25% of all comics are nothing but Far-Side-Wannabe’s, and consist entirely of “What Would Gary Larson Do?” single panels.

    The problem is that the author can occasionally forget to put a joke in.

    At least this one doesn’t copy Larson’s drawing style so faithfully as so many others do…

    This is my vote. Not that that’s what I thought when I saw it (mine was more along the line of the osteoectomy), but it seems to make the most sense to me.
