Fake-Out Steak-Out Break-Out

First | Previous | 2014-04-10 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Edwin Chee

{Jon hands Garfield a plate of presumably healthy food}
Jon: I'm putting you on a diet, Garfield... Here's your dinner.
{Garfield fearfully points the other way, causing Jon to look there}
Jon: Wha...
{Garfield switched plates, ate Jon's steak and left. Jon realised what happened and is not happy about it.}
Sign: Garfield ate Jon's steak

The author writes:

Here's my contribution to the series of doughnut-related submissions. When I looked at this strip, it seems like another candidate for the seemingly endless ideas for stolen food. Initially, I wanted to put the sign on Jon's plate, but it would obstruct Jon's reaction, so I switched plates to allow the sign to be easily read, as well as making Jon's unhappiness clear.

Thanks for reading.
