Backfield Minus Back

Strip by: D. Gates

Garfield: Snails are slow.

Snail: take
Snail: that

The author writes:

The original crammed a four-word phrase into three panels. Backfield improved it by substituting a three-word phrase. Then I thought to myself, "Is a four-panel punchline in a three-panel strip a problem... or an opportunity?"
