Strip by: U. N. Owen

Rat: I'm expanding Gar's vocabulary. Today's word was 'defenestration', which means the act of throwing someone out a window.
Goat: That's great. What have you found is the best way of teaching new words?
{Cut to Garfield getting thrown out of a window}
Rat: Learning can be a painful process.

An homage to one of my favorite comic strips (along with SRoMG), Pearls Before Swine. I was scrolling through the SRoMG archive and I got to the series of strips based on 1981-03-29, and my mind went to the PBS 2012-09-24 strip, in which Pig also gets 'defenestrated'. Vocabulary! It's fun!

Original Pearls Before Swine strip: 2012-09-24.
