Strip by: Nyperold

{Garfield, in floral print, is sitting in a chair that bears his normal colouration.}
Garfield: WAHCHOO!
Garfield: Cat hair print.

The author writes:

A funny (eh, to me) story about how I came to choose this strip. I was using a die-rolling program to select a date to put into the search: 1d30+1977, 1d12, and, based on the 1d12 result, 1d30. Well, when I got the result for the 1d30, I inadvertently ignored the result, and used the 30 instead. But I immediately had an idea for it, from which sprang three other ideas, so I went with it.

In all three of the ones I sent based on it, Garfield's pattern and the pattern of the chair are transposed. We see one consequence here.

[[Original strip: 1981-06-30]]
