Garfield Plus Resignation To Fate

First | Previous | 2016-07-08 | Next | Latest

Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Garfield is trying to hold himself back from climbing a tree}
Garfield: Sometimes it's hard to fight primal instincts.
{Garfield starts climbing the tree}
Garfield: No! No! No! Don't make me do it!
{Garfield is sitting on a tree branch, looking perturbed}
Garfield: Arrrgh. Someone help me.

The author writes:

By rearranging the order of what Garfield says in each panel, and carefully changing the emphasis, Garfield's closing comment is now one of sarcasm, having resigned himself to his fate.
