Strip by: Negative N
Jon: 1978 has sure been a long year.
Garfield: We gotta get a new calendar.

The cool thing about Garfield strips is that it's always easy to find an obvious joke. In the original strip, Jon thought that the year was 2009 (the strip was published in 2014). I'm using the date the comic premiered, and letting extensions and alterations occur naturally.
