It

Strip by: Fastfur07

Jon: Garfield! Come and get it!
Garfield: Come and get "it", he says
Garfield {walking over}: Exactly what is an "it"? Is "it" a hamburger? Is "it" cat food?
{Upon arriving, Garfield sees smiling Jon and a paper Yoshi in a bowl}

The author writes:

Context: In the Wii U game Paper Mario: Color Splash, in the Dark Bloo Inn, there is a miniboss. A Shy Guy comes up to a Koopa, a Spike, and a Sledge Bro (known as 'Shady Sledge'), holding something invisible, which they only refer to as 'it'. After you defeat Shady Sledge, he says, "If only I coulda sat on 'it'... just once..." before dying. The rest of them run away, leaving 'it' behind. You then pick it up, go back into the hotel, into a room, and hit it with your hammer, to reveal that 'it' is Yoshi.

The original 3rd panel had Garfield saying, "Nope. "it" is just an "it"." Plus Yoshi is my favorite character, so I just had to do this.
