Passable Editing Skills

First | Previous | 2019-01-04 | Next | Latest

Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Jon is eating a hamburger, which Garfield is clearly begging for}
Jon: You can have this hamburger if you can reach it, Garfield
Jon: Wha!?
{Garfield's arms stretch up to grab the burger. Jon attempts to remove it from Garfield's presence, but Garfield's arms, already larger than himself, contort themselves in strange ways, eventually stealing away the burger. Garfield eats the burger}
Jon: B-B-B-B-B-B-B
Garfield: Jon will rue the day I was exposed to cosmic radiation

The author writes:

This strip was born from the following exchange (insofar as you can call me reading a paragraph and then talking to myself an "exchange"):

Mattman324: "Oh, and the first strip could have so many different jokes done about it by people with even passable editing skills. Like, first of all, how in the world did those arms bend that way?"

KelpTheGreat (to himself): "Hey, I have passable editing skills..."

And here we are. So, my answer to the question, "how in the world did those arms bend that way?" Clearly, the way they were able to bend in such a manner is out of this world.

Now, of course, I'm fully expecting people to make strips that substitute Mr. Fantastic's origin story in the last panel for Plastic Man's, Elongated Man's, Elastigirl's, Monkey D. Luffy's, etc.
