Strip by: Xindaris

{It's just Garfield's tombstone}

The author writes:

I cropped out Garfield's tombstone, scaled it up 5x in mspaint, and submitted it as a SRoMG. There you go, the logical conclusion to every strip ever whose punchline is a shot of this tombstone. Not that I'm particularly annoyed by such strips or anything, but doing logical conclusions is a common SRoMG trope, and once I had the idea I decided to jump on it before someone else could. Because it's a very easy, lazy edit to make, after all.

What I would like to see, is someone actually scaling it up properly so it's not so blurry. Maybe rendering it in original artwork that faces the camera head-on and makes it easy to insert your own death date? And then people can use that for those punchlines instead of this. Hey, a guy can dream.

Original strip: 1982-10-28.
