Quote Mine

First | Previous | 2014-12-24 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Sir Bacon

Jon: Leonardo da Vinci once said "Simplicity is the ultim-..."
SFX: POW!
{Jon and a large chunk of the table are now gone. Garfield addresses the viewer}
Garfield: Looks like that quote was mined.

The author writes:

This strip is something of a gamble, in addition to being surreal and punny. Namely, it's a gamble that most of you are already familiar with the term Quote Mine, otherwise the punchline falls flat. I figured this was a safe bet considering all the links to TVTropes in previous SRoMGs, and if you've seen one Trope page, it's probable that you've seen a lot of them.
