Strip by: DanielBT

Garfield: {hiding inside mailbox} Here he comes now!
{Mailman sneaks up to box, looking behind him}
{Mailman places mail in box, whistling nonchalantly}
{Garfield leaps out of the mailbox and blows a raspberry}
Mailman: ARRRGH!
SFX: B-B-B-B
{Mailman slams box shut, Garfield is now hiding behind the door frame}
SFX: SLAM!
Garfield: Hey, look. That mailman's hand is stuck in the mailbox.
Garfield: How tragic.
{Garfield is inside with Jon}
Mailman: {off-screen} AIEEEEEEEE!
Jon: What was that?
Garfield: Well now, possibly there could be a large, unattractive insect in the mailbox... maybe.
{Mailman is outside, looking in shock at a snowman with sharp fangs hiding the open mailbox inside its mouth}

The author writes:

One of Garfield's favourite tricks is to hide inside the mailbox until the mailman comes.
