Friday Fun Post - Garfield Minus Garfield

This may be old news to some of you, but if you haven't yet checked out Garfield Minus Garfield yet, you should.

I'll admit that I haven't enjoyed Garfield for years. I thought it was boring, predictable, and worse: just not funny.

Turns out that the problem with the strip is...

Garfield.

Remove the cat and the strip means something else entirely.


See what I mean?

Best of all, Garfield creator Jim Davis is being cool about the whole thing. While he could have sent forth a flurry of C&D letters, he recognizes the brilliance of Garfield Minus Garfield.

Or maybe he just feels guilty about all those "I hate Mondays" cop-outs.

You are so stupid that you don't know what's fun.
If you are goin' to say those one more time, I'm really going to kill you

Yay! My first death threat. This blog must be gaining traction. Now I just have to watch out for eight-year-old Garfield fans (or at least avoid Garfield fans who write like eight-year-olds)...
