Strip by: Nyperold

Jon: Hey, Garfield! Come here quick!
Jon: Look, Garfield! The carnival has come to town! Let's go.
Garfield: Whoopty doo.
{at the carnival}
Jon: Do you know what I love most about a carnival?
Garfield: The intellectual stimulation?
{They get in line; Jon holds the money.}
Jon: I love the sideshow.
Garfield: Uh, Jon?
Jon: The fat woman! The rubber man! The dinosaur boy!
Garfield: JON!
Garfield: Save your money.

The author writes:

I was looking for "dinosaur"s. I found this.

Ever notice how Jon tries to pay for two $1 tickets... with three bills? What, are they 66.6...-cent bills? "Save your money," indeed; don't pay a dollar more than the asking price!

There are, of course, other ways to fix this... but I leave them to others.
