No. 513: Garfield (Rescued Chilean) Miners Garfield

Garfield (Rescued Chilean) Miners Garfield

First | Previous | 2010-10-14 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Craig Wittler

Jon: The world is constantly changing.
{Rescued Chilean miners}
Garfield: They haven't stopped trying to improve mine safety, have they?

The author writes:

Okay, the "Garfield [sounds like minus] Garfield" meme is "not only merely dead, but really most sincerely dead" (to quote a Munchkin). But after the extended media event that was the rescue one-by-one of the Trapped Chilean Miners, this still had to be done (with a shout out to improving mine safety so this doesn't have to happen again). I know that, with the massive backlog of contributions, this will probably not appear until the Chilean Mine Not-Really-A-Disaster is mostly forgotten, but if something like this had been done when the mine first caved in over 2 months ago, it would be emerging at about the same time. :-)

Admin note: This submission was so timely and appropriate, I made a special exception and inserted it into the queue in place of another strip. (This is a very rare exception - it takes a lot of work to mess with the buffer queue.)
