US Acres Cartoon – Oh So Funny!

Snort – While surfing the net, I have found the funniest comic strip ever.  It’s called U.S. Acres or outside of the United States it was called Orson’s Farm.  Mom didn’t even know this comic strip existed – it is a hoot!

The comic strip originally ran from 1986 to 1989 and was created by Jim Davis.  You know who Jim Davis is – the creator of Garfield 🙂  It ended after only three years.  Towards the end of the strip, Brett Koth, who had been assisting Jim Davis on Garfield at the time, was given co-creator’s credit and signed his name to the strip with Davis. 

 The entire comic stip is centered around – well you guessed it – barnyard animals.  Here’s one of comic strips that I absolutely loved –20130522-105522.jpg

The main character was Orson – a pig just like me!  Yeah, I know he’s pink and I’m a black pig but we’re still pigs.  And the best part – sometimes Orson becomes a costumed superhero named Power Pig.  See, I knew there was a reason I liked him. 

There’s also Ray Rooster, Wade Duck, Booker, Sheldon, Bo Sheep and Lanolin Sheep to name a few.  If you haven’t checked this comic strip out yet, you just have to for some giggles!
