Strip by: Lubaf

Garfield: *sigh*
Garfield: I can't go on like this
{Garfield puts his head into a recliner, and puts his hand on the lever, as Jon looks on}

The author writes:

It's surprising sometimes how an archival error resulting in you seeing the wrong third panel can make a strip so much funnier.

I'm not necessarily talking about this strip, mind, because I did this on purpose and this joke is probably either too dark or too played out for most of our readership, but it's something that could theoretically happen.

Original strips: 1989-02-11, 2016-07-11.
