Strip by: Calebyte
Dogbert: Mister Garbage Man, do you know why Dilbert's neckties curl up?
Garbage Man: It could be a Tanzanian necktie snake in one of its clever disguises.
Garbage Man: They'll stalk you for years, then suddenly - ACK!!
Jon: This isn't a tie! It's a snake!

Unfortunately, the only Garfield strips I can find are smaller than the Dilbert strips. They looked disparate next to each other unchanged, so I decided to blow up the Garfield strip rather than shrink the Dilbert strip.
