    yeah, totally hilarious reinventing of a thoroughly unfunny comic strip. I love it.

    Haha, Jon's propper mental then....

    It's definitely a laugh, but not exactly side splitting, still, anythings better than the original strip...

    You've got to be kidding. I've never laughed so hard at a comic strip before.

    do that to any strip and you get the same results.

    but i'll concede it's less annoying this way.

    Saw this earlier on the Presurfer. The ones I liked best were the one with Mrs. Feeny's card and the one where Jon says "Oh the pain!". They both stand exceptionally well on their own.

    Actually I think Garfield is one of the best candidates for erasing a character along with their dialogue, because Jon is usually going off on a tangent anyway. The strip seems to be less about the jokes than gags.

    Any strip with an obnoxious animal interacting with humans would probably work just as well.

    And as a sad example of the state of our modern society, there's no lack of such comic strips...

    Much better.

    This one reminded me a bit of Tom Cruise.

    What ruined Garfield for me was his voice. As a kid Garfield was one of my favorites beacause I gave him a funny voice. When I first heard his condescending, depressing voice it was no longer funny.

    That's pretty good reading.:)
    The writer of Zippy could learn a thing or two about making comics from this.

    Those are pretty funny, but it doesn't hold a candle to this Garfield comic strip.

    I want two minutes of my life back.

    That was the single most pointless thing I've ever seen.

    Aw, yeah, that was funny. It's a shame, Garfield was a riot in the 80s and 90s.
