The Latin Root of Minus Garfield

First | Previous | 2012-08-16 | Next | Latest

Strip by: The Madb

{Garfield walks in the yard.}
Garfield: Odie caelata cauda.
Garfield: Odie captus cauda.
{Garfield points out a half-buried Odie to the audience.}
Garfield: Odie sepultus cauda.

The author writes:

"Caelata, captus, sepultus" doesn't quite have the same ring as "Vini, vidi, vici," but then again, Jim Davis isn't exactly Ovid. Nor am I, for that matter.

Original strip: 1999-11-30.
