Jon: Garfield, you make a lovely fire
Garfield: I do make a lovely fire
Jon: Well, I gotta get my death ray ready. You enjoy your lovely fire
Garfield: I'll enjoy my lovely fire
Jon: Hey! What happened to my death ray?!
Garfield: It made a lovely fire
The author writes:
This is such an obvious submission to me that I'm surprised nobody's done it before in the decade since the original Dark Side of the Lasagne was posted. Surely if there's a dark side of the lasagne, there must also be a light side? Thus, while in the original Garfield went from a simple jerk to a murderer, here he is transformed into a heroic figure protecting the world from whatever Jon was planning to do with that death ray.
