The author writes:

When you go on the Library of Babel, using this code*, this wall, this shelf, this volume, and this page links you to the script of the first Garfield strip.

* You need to remove the line breaks. (Line breaks were added in the transcript here to prevent this page being a zillion miles wide in your browser with a horizontal scrollbar.)

Original strip: 1978-06-19.

[Ed: "The Library of Babel" is a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, first published in Spanish in his collection The Garden of Forking Paths - alongside, coincidentally enough, "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote". It details an "everlasting, ubiquitous system of hexagonal galleries", the titular Library, whose hexagons contain bookshelves and whose bookshelves contain all possible combinations of letters of the alphabet: ...that is, all that is able to be expressed, in every language. All - the detailed history of the future, the autobiographies of the archangels, the faithful catalog of the Library, thousands and thousands of false catalogs... (Collected fictions/Jorge Luis Borges; translated by Andrew Hurley)]
