Forgot I Could Walk

First | Previous | 2017-03-21 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Nyperold

Jon: {matter-of-factly} Garfield, cats can't walk on their hind feet.
{Despite the fact that he is, has, and will do so by default in the future.}
Garfield: I didn't know that.
{Garfield walks on his front feet.}
Caption: Nearly a month later...
Garfield: I wonder if I could stand on just two feet?
{...Yeah, I wonder. Anyway, he does, moving his forelegs for balance.}
Garfield: Hey, this is great! I'm standing!
{He dances, even though cats don't.}
Garfield: Now I can tap-dance.
SFX: TAP TAP TAP TAPPITY TAP TAP
{He reaches for a slider that's sitting in a saucer on the table.}
Garfield: And I can reach the tabletop.
{Bravo, he's certainly never done that before.}
Garfield: And drop-kick Odie.
{Then he drop-kicks Odie.}
SFX: DROP
SFX: KICK!
Jon: {pointing, alarmed for some reason} Garfield! Cats can't walk on their hind feet!
{Get used to it, pal. For the time being, however, Garfield trips.}
SFX: SMACK!
Jon: See?
Garfield: Thanks a lot.
