I wanted to make a strip to celebrate the release of WarioWare Gold. I don't think we've ever had a WarioWare strip on SRoMG.
My original plan was to do one of those comics where you take a song and use Garfield comic panels to fit the lyrics, but use the lyrics of the Mona Pizza song. While there are a lot of Garfield comics about ordering pizza, there are way less that actually show pizza, so that didn't work out.
So I decided to take a single strip and make it WarioWare-related. In case you've never played a WarioWare game, this strip is a reference to Mona Pizza, the fictional pizza company that has appeared in multiple games of the series. Mona is the delivery woman, so it makes sense that she'd be delivering the pizza to Jon and Garfield in this strip. I was thinking about changing the last panel's dialog, but I think it's funnier with the original line.
Original strip: 1996-05-25.
