Strip by: AQ206

Jon: You look happy this morning
Garfield: I want it?
Garfield: It's weird... I'm in a bad mood...
Garfield: Come on face.... do it with the program!

So, I was browsing through SRoMG, and I saw #2146, and this idea popped up in my tiny lil' brain, so I went to Google Translate, translated the transcript of 1998-06-08 from English to German and Italian, and back to English, and the result is, almost the same, I must say*. But I'm not disappointed.

[*I suspect that for short, plain, fairly unambiguous texts such as Garfield strips, machine translation is probably getting too good for this sort of thing to bear zany fruit any more. -Ed]

Original strip: 1998-06-08.
