Autsch!

First | Previous | 2016-01-24 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Densetsu Bros

Jon: What's a six-letter-word for "pain," Garfield?
Jon: {as Garfield hits his hand} AUTSCH!!!
SFX: KROCK!
Jon: Is that with a "D" or a "T"?

The author writes:

The German version of this strip uses the "Autsch!" sound, with the last panel (roughly) translated as shown. In the original English version, there's no reason for Jon to ask how many R's the word "Arrrrgh!" should have, since it obviously has to be six letters long. So, the German version seems to make more sense.

Original strip: 1979-02-17.
