Not the Bees!

First | Previous | 2015-08-22 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Colin Foster

{Jon is pursued by bees}
Jon: BEES!
{Jon frantically runs past Garfield, still pursued by bees}
Garfield {holding up shampoo bottle}: The old "pollen-in-the-shampoo" gag.

The author writes:

I saw the original strip, where Garfield had put honey in the shampoo, and immediately wondered if bees were really attracted to honey. Some quick research on Wikipedia informs me that bees do use their honey as a food source, but nothing about external sources of honey attracting them. I assume pollen would be much more attractive to them anyway.

Original strip: 1995-12-05.
