Going out with style(t)

First | Previous | 2018-08-24 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Levellass

Mosquito: Hey, cat, I'm gonna hop on your neck and suck out all your bodily fluids
{Garfield whacks the mosquito without even looking}
Squashed Mosquito: Hey, you crimped my stylet!

The author writes:

The original strip is etymologically incorrect; almost no spiders feed on blood, whereas mosquitoes are famous for it. As such this strip has been edited to be more scientifically accurate. (The stylet is the piercing part of a mosquito's mouthparts; as a bonus it's very straw like.)

Mosquito image here is a 'Skypest' from 8-bit classic Commander Keen 4.
