Strip by: MichaelSar

Jon: I'm wearing a new cologne
Jon: Eau De Bacon
{Garfield's eyes widen for some reason}
{Meanwhile...}
{Odie is standing around in a field panting}
{Suddenly, the dog smells something. Turning around, he thinks to himself...}
Odie: Is that... BACON?
{Odie runs off towards the scent}
Odie: Gotta get that bacon!
{Odie runs down the sidewalk, through the doggy door, and down the hall}
Jon: Well, what do you think?
{Jon doesn't know that Odie is about to pounce on him}
{The next panel reads "THE CARTOONIST HAS ELECTED NOT TO SHOW THIS PANEL DUE TO ITS GRAPHIC NATURE}
{Jon is now soaking wet}
Jon: In hindsight, I think I should avoid cologne that smell like edible things
Garfield: Well, at least you tried something

The author writes:

This was inspired by the ads for "Beggin' Strips". You know, the ads with the dog that sounds a little like Gilbert Gottfried smelling the bacon strips and running towards it? Those ads?

Don't ask me why Jon would want to smell like bacon. Granted, this IS Jon we're talking about here...

And yes, I know it should be "cologne that SMELLS like edible things", not "cologne that smell like edible things". I thought the plural of cologne was "cologne".
