Strip by: Banana Slug

{a black and white newspaper strip}
Caption: Garfield - Jon Arbuckle
Liz: I had a wonderful time tonight, Jon.
Jon: So did I. And it's my birthday, too.
Liz: Well, happy birthday!
SFX: kiss
Liz: Did you get something nice?
Jon: I got a life.
Garfield: And they lived happily ever after.
{meanwhile, back in reality}
Jon: So, is this my best story arc ever?
Garfield: I hope she doesn't subscribe to this paper.

The author writes:

Liz's character development came completely out of nowhere, so it's only reasonable to conclude that Jon hijacked the strip and has been writing it ever since. I question the legality of him publishing these things.
