Strip by: Nyperold

{Garfield pokes Jon, causing inky black liquid to issue forth from his mug. It could be coffee, it could be liquid licorice, it could be squid ink for all we know}
SFX: POKE POKE POKE
{Jon looks annoyed at Garfield, although it's only partially his fault that the cup is now being emptied onto the floor}
SFX: POKE POKE POKE POKE
Garfield: I'm hungry
{Jon turns to face Garfield}
Jon: Garfield, you know I hate it when you poke me
SFX: POKE POKE POKE
{Garfield progresses to employing both index fingers to poke Jon as Jon brings his right hand into view again. As it is devoid of a mug, said container may now be in Jon's left hand, or perhaps on the floor}
SFX: POKE POKE POKE POKE
Garfield: Then feed me
Jon: How would you like it if I poked you?!
{Jon brings out his left hand and pokes Garfield with it, showing that both hands are empty. Careful not to step on your mug, Jon!}
SFX: POKE!
{Jon and Garfield engage in a rapid-fire poke war as Lyman looks on}
SFX: POKE! POKE! POKE! POKE! POKE! POKE!
Lyman: It's things like that, that make me glad I'm a dog owner
{We shall see, for, now, Odie pokes Lyman}
SFX: POKE

Quick, see if you can guess what Odie's thinking without looking at the original strip below! (Then go ahead and check the original strip to see if you're right. After all, if you say you guessed correctly, I have no way to verify if you're being honest.)

Also, if you know because you've seen the strip, do you think you could have guessed?
