Challenge: Far Side: Gary Larson Tribute II (Extended Editing)
Camera: Nikon D7000
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Not sure whether it could be a Gary Larson joke, but looks like it from what I have seen using Google.

3 images
* one with high arm
* one with arm on door
* one of the hole in the door (=cardboard cut out with backlight)

1) first two images combined, high arm duplicated in the middle, blur of arm added by using smudge tool, movement of the body added by duplicating and shifting one of the images
2) 3rd image inverted, resized and moved into position, layer multiply blend, additional drawing of black line and rough edges
3) added a vignette
4) resize, save for web

Might have been stronger as a joke just with the sign on the door, without person, or with a person crying, instead of this one with agression. This is rather in-your-face, not subtle, but photographically more interesting.

Credits for the joke go to Herman Finkers, a dutch theater comedian.
