Strip by: Lubaf

Jon: {holding a pot} All we have is noodles, so we're having noodles tonight.
Jon: {holding pencils} The forks are still dirty, but we can use these pencils like chopsticks
Jon: {holding a sock} And the napkins are still in the laundry, so...
Garfield: We're bachelors, baby.

The author writes:

Because the original ignored previous canon (from as recently as 2012-09-09).

Admin note: Colin Foster submitted an almost identical strip less than two hours after Lubaf (showing below).

alternative embodiment

I saw the original strip and was shocked that Garfield didn't use the "we're bachelors, baby!" punchline that Jim Davis mysteriously thinks is funny. So I fixed it for him.

Also, are there really washable napkins? And why would you wash them in the laundry? Wouldn't that get gross bits of foodstuff on your clothes? Oh, wait. They're bachelors, baby.
