    Opened up the Garfield email I get daily, and saw this.

    It was great. :D

    Garfield's nowhere near as funny now as it was back in the 80s, but that one made me laugh :)

    Hehe, that is good. Too right Nermal, hes not as witty as he used to be, but at least its good to see hes staying on the cutting edge of technology. :)

    I know the feeling... I think this was the first time I giggled from a Garfield (Pusur in Norwegian, a name I always though was better than the original) in more or less 20 years (man, I feel old).

    This joke did seem rather familiar, though... didn't Garfield listen to bacon frying with a walkman in the mid-80s...? Or is my memory just acting up on me again...?

    Now you've got me wanting to go to the bookstore to find that...because that does seem familiar.

    If that is true...Jim Davis is finished. :p Ever heard of plagiarism, Jimmy-boy? (And, yes, you can plagiarize yourself).

    Jim Davis was finished, creatively, round and about 20 years ago... after that it's only been about the money... and I can totally understand that, as long as I don't have to read Garfield any more... ;)

    'Tis is true. I just want the whole commercial thing to come crashing around him too. What a sell-out.

    Let me guess....tomorrow Garfield will kill a spider or sleep-in or eat.

    This is fairly interesting, however: http://www.truthandbeautybombs.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=4997

    And, Wikipedia has an interesting tidbit:
    This is hilarious:

    Pretty good.

    As others have mentioned the old Garfield was much better.

    Kind of like the final episode of Roseanne where you find out that the final 5-6 seasons were just a book Roseanne wrote after Dan died of a heart attack.

    Geez, I don't even like Garfield and that's depressing to think about. It's a part of my childhood and it's sort of comforting to think that it's always the same, even if that makes it unfunny. It's kind of freaky to think that all this happy-happy-joy-joy stuff for the past couple of decades are really the hopeless delusions of a dead or dying house cat. Bleah.

    Pretty good.

    Today, Garfield seems a bit lame most of the time.

    Until now, I never checked out the Garfield.com website.

    I have been carrying a copy of the following cartoon around with me for a long time. Decided to try to find it on the web site. There it was under 1984. Still find it funny.

    I prefer Calvin and Hobbes. It was never a newspaper comic, but was just published in Watterson's collection books. It was all about the creativity. :) A full page, full colour comic every Sunday! I love Watterson's weird panel designs.
