Feeding the Cat

Strip by: SonicLover

{Garfield, sitting on a dresser, licks his lips as he looks at a ham sitting on a table}
{A menu pops up with four options: Reach, Bridge, Stunt Mouse, and Teleporter, all with appropriate icons}
{Having apparently picked Reach, Garfield reaches for the ham}
{Garfield ends up hanging awkwardly between the dresser and the table}
Garfield: Garfield, you dummy.
{A FAIL screen pops up}
Message: Who did you think you were, Kitty D. Luffy?
Buttons: Retry / Step Back / Return to Start / Menu

Rule 34G: if it exists, no matter how obscure or ill-fitting it is, a Square Root of Minus Garfield comic will reference it. Bloons? Check. Spy vs. Spy? Check. Wander Over Yonder? Check. Rhythm Heaven? Check. Blue's Clues? Check. Schoolhouse Rock? That one's still stuck in the backlog, but wait a few months and you'll see it for sure.

Today's reference is to a series of CYOA-style Flash games by Stickpage, known either as the "Xing the Y" series or as the Henry Stickmin series, depending on who you ask. Read about it on TV Tropes.
