Talking Scale Minus Garfield... ?

First | Previous | 2009-12-08 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Pepsiman

{A weight scale is alone. Garfield is nowhere to be seen}
Scale: Augh get-it-off-me get-it-off-me.
Scale: ?
Scale: Hello, I'm RX-2, your talking scale. If you step on me, I'll tell you your weight.

The author writes:

The original strip is from 1985-11-18.

One would think, in a world without Garfield, that various beings would adjust their behaviour accordingly. And then, there is the talking scale.

Is it malfunctioning? Is it pining for days of obese cats that are perhaps long past, or even non-existent? Does it know something we don't? Or is it possessed?
