Disaster Days with Comedic Ending

First | Previous | 2016-04-22 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Nyperold

{Garfield is lying on his back}
Garfield: It's fun to lie here and muse on the meaning of life,
Jon: {typing angrily} Who knew that my cat was capable of such an evil and unspeakable deed?
Jon: {covering the receiver as he talks to Garfield} The rooster has strep throat.
Garfield: Chicken soup is good for that.

The author writes:

While I respect Lubaf's decision to assemble the comic from panels arranged in chronological order, I feel the idea could use a little...

...Orson, Murder, and Jaywalking.

Original strips: 1986-01-28, 2010-04-20, 2009-12-23.

Of course, if I really want Orson, Murder, and Jaywalking - and am willing to mix up the order a bit more - then perhaps it should look more... like this:

{Orson is being propelled forward jarringly} Orson: Hic-SNORT! Hic-SNORT! {Garfield is lying on his back} Garfield: And muse on the myriad of solutions to the world's woes, Jon: {covering the receiver as he talks to Garfield} The rooster has strep throat. Garfield: Chicken soup is good for that.

Original strips: 1986-01-28, 2009-12-23.

Original U.S. Acres strip: 2010-04-20 (rerun date; originally run on 1987-04-20; no noteworthy disasters on that date, either).
