The Mailman's Dog

First | Previous | 2013-01-01 | Next | Latest

Strip by: DanielBT

Mailman: Watch it, cat! I have Fido with me today!
Garfield: {making martial arts moves} Well, bring on this Fido.
Mailman: {whistles} Here, Fido!
Garfield: REARRR!
Garfield: {wrestling with the dog} It's the old "bring in the reinforcements" trick.
{Garfield hides from a man in a big dog suit}
Garfield: {running into the house, all scratched and scraped up} The mailman and his big dog are here!

The author writes:

A one-sided assault can get boring quickly if the comedic victim doesn't allow themselves to defend against these constant attacks. And the mailman counters as best as he can.

Of all the comic predators, I think the Anteater (Eatanter) from B.C. is the most successful. He has as much chance of devouring his prey as he does of not eating the ants due to his tongue getting tangled or something. And he routinely displays dislike for only eating ants.
