Strip by: Sonikku A

{Title Block: Jon is bemused while Garfield eats his lunch. Garfield ironically asks what he's having}
{Garfield is owning Jon in an arm wrestling match without breaking a sweat}
Jon {flexing and posing at mirror}: Hey, Garfield
Jon: Did you know muscles earn you respect?
Jon: Did you know chicks go crazy over guys with big muscles?
{Slightly amused, Garfield one-ups Jon by flexing his entirely body into a muscle bound hulk. Jon looks in shock over the finesse}
Garfield {reverting to normal}: Bet you didn't know you could flex fat

The author writes:

Tweaked the last line Garfield says to be like how Garfield and Friends adapted it for the Quickie, since it flowed better. Sadly, the quickie segment had Jon notoriously unamused with the hulking, which I found hurt the gag a little.

Original strip: 1988-08-07.
