Strip by: Super SpongeBob 64

{Odie walks in with a black wad of... something}
Jon: Gee... Uh, thanks, Odie
Jon: What is it, Garfield?
Garfield: I dunno, it may be a clue that could point us toward the true fate of Lyman... but what do I know.

The author writes:

I made an early version of this submission ages ago, the joke being that the wad of blackness Odie gives to Jon is actually the mustache of Lyman. (Yes, I know Lyman's mustache is brown, not black, but it's funnier this way. Feel free to interpret it as you please.)

The original version of this had Garfield saying a rather boring and linear retort. I changed it up to sound way more interesting.

Original strip: 1983-07-26.
