Strip by: kotomikun

{Jon reaches for his phone}
Phone: Naaaa na na nana nana na...
{Garfield smashes the phone with a hammer}
Jon: NA?!
Jon: Katamari Damacy!
Garfield: It looked smaller than me. It was just instinct.

The author writes:

As I'm sure you already know, all of the dialogue is from this XKCD strip. Which is neither the only XKCD strip about Katamari, nor the only one with lots of Na's in it. The re-remixes here practically write themselves.

"Na" actually sorta works as in interjection of shock in Japanese—probably because it's the first half of "Nani," meaning "What"—so it's up to you to decide whether Jon was determined to continue the song in spite of his phone's untimely obliteration, or if this is an alternate universe where Jon speaks Japanese, Garfield thinks in English, and Odie barks in Swedish.
