Compound Recontextualization (AKA: Followup 2)

Strip by: Lubaf

Jon: {singing}
I remember a happy fishbowl
I remember a frisky little fish
Where have all the memories gone?
Garfield: (Interrupting) Is this a country song?

The author writes:

Two changes, and both the joke and the context of the scene are changed. (And, no, Garfield, this is a folk song. Country songs are currently about beer, hot girls, and pickup trucks, and even back when they weren't, they were more focused on storytelling and small details then Jon's song here.)
