Strip by: Nyperold

{Title panel: Garfield bounces across a hot pavement, on which an egg is frying}
Garfield: Ooch! Eech! Ouch!
{Jon, Garfield, and Odie suffer from the heat, Jon in his chair, and Garfield and Odie on the floor by the window. None leave or change position throughout the strip}
Jon: Hot, hot, hot. It's hot out there
Jon: It's too hot to move. It's too hot to think. It's just too hot
{beat}
Odie: C
Garfield: F
Jon: Garfield! Odie!
Jon: Stop fighting

The author writes:

My original idea was to have Odie say "M" and leave Garfield's original line as it was, but felt this would be better.

I could've had Odie said 29 and Garfield say 84, but that would mean tracking down numbers. Or using the font.

Original strip: 1985-07-28.
