Strip by: Camwoodstock

Garfield: There are lots of funny 'edgy' jokes out there! There's, uh...
{beat, Garfield looks on in a crippling realization}
{beat, it is now night}

The author writes:

I hate "edgy" humor. I don't mean "dark" humor like Cards Against Humanity, or jokes that are actually – y'know – jokes. I mean the "edgy" humor like "LOL BUSH DID AUTISM IN FORTNITE???" that you often see in YouTube comments on LeafyIsHere videos, Facebook, or Reddit.

Stop. Stop. There is more to comedy than going onto a stage and shouting expletives. You can't just slap together offensive things and call it a joke. All you have then is a sad amalgamation.

This strip goes out to David Morgan-Mar*. He's probably seen at least a few "edgy" people submit """"""""""""quality"""""""""""" edgy strips he had to manually weed out himself – bless his heart.
