The Other Hawaiian Flu

First | Previous | 2015-01-07 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Lubaf

Jon: {On phone} Garfield, the vet says that there's a rare strain of Magnum, P.I. flu going around. You'll have to stay inside.
{Garfield walks on panel, wearing a Hawaiian shirt and the head of Tom Selleck}
Jon: Too late, Doc.

The author writes:

Sometimes, you hit "Random" on Garfield.com, and a potential SRoMG strip smacks you in the face.

Here's Wikipedia and TV Tropes on Magnum P.I., in case you're curious.

And be thankful I didn't reach for a "Hawaii Five-Oh Flu" joke instead (although there wasn't a Hawaiian shirt wearing character in that show, from what I recall, making that joke much harder to pull off).

Original strip: 1985-03-19.
