{A chart labeled "I Ate Your Dinner", with single comic panels distributed across it. The X-axis shows how threatening the comic is. The Y-axis shows how realistic the comic is.}
Note at bottom: "Realistic" refers to how in-character it would be for Garfield to make this statement.
Note at bottom: "Threatening" refers to how disturbed I am by Garfield making this statement in this situation.

{Panels will be noted by estimated coordinates in the form XtYr, where X is the amount of "threatening" and Y is the amount of "realistic". Amounts range from 0 to 100. 0t0r is non-threatening and non-realistic. 100t100r is extremely threatening and realistic.}
