The Angriest Cat in the World

First | Previous | 2009-11-04 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Colin Foster

Caption: The cat who is so angry he cannot move. He cannot eat. He cannot sleep. He can just barely purr. Bound so tightly with tension and anger, he approaches the state of rigor mortis.
{Garfield sits angrily, motionless}
Voice off-screen: I met two very nice girls at the orchestra...
Voice off-screen: Claire and Annette.
{Garfield sits motionless}
{Garfield sits motionless in the dark, as the sun has gone down}

The author writes:

I actually came up with this before No. 135, but neglected to submit it before then. The toughest part was coming up with dialogue to match the strangeness of the original work. The second-toughest part was finding a suitable "angry" Garfield.
