13th Birthday Special: Inhale

First | Previous | 2014-10-31 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Colin Foster

Jon: Happy birthday, Garfield! What would you like to do today?
Garfield: Oh, considering my age, not much.
{Garfield literally inhales the birthday cake}
SFX: INHALE!
{The candles land on the table}
SFX: Click clickety clicket click
Garfield: Perhaps a nibble and a nap.

The author writes:

This was inspired by a Zits strip. Zits, for those of you unfamiliar, is a semi-exaggerated portrayal of teenaged life. One early strip had the main character Jeremy showing up for family dinner, and literally inhaling all the food on the table. I thought that seemed fairly appropriate for Garfield.

Original strip: 1991-06-19.
