Strip by: Linguanaut

{Jon and Garfield are sitting at a table, eating dinner}
Jon: You know, Garfield, today wasn't a total loss...
Jon: And this dinner isn't terrible
{Garfield looks to the audience, wryly}
Garfield: The secret to happiness is lowering your dinner
{Jon's dinner has lowered itself part-way out of the panel, overlapping the border. I'm not really sure how to properly transcribe an attempt at a visual gag, if I'm honest. Sorry about that}

The author writes:

Well, now you know. If in future anyone else tries to tell you what the secret to happiness is, you can rest assured in the knowledge that what it really is, is a cartoon dinner-plate sliding down the page in a way that breaks perspective and framing.
