Shakespeare's (Way With) Words

Strip by: Manyhills

Jon: I'm going to write a love letter to Liz.
Jon: And great love letters always compare the loved one to something. What could that be?
Garfield: Well, duh! A summer's day!

The author writes:

To make up for there not being much of a joke here, I was planning on writing a Garfield-themed parody of Sonnet 130 to go in the annotation. I got as far as

My mistress' eyes are nothing like lasagne
Tomato sauce more red than her lips' red
Her name is Jill, though some folk call her Tanya

when it suddenly and forcefully occurred to me that I needed to immediately stop for my own good and the good of humanity.
