Strip by: U. N. Owen

Jon: Flex contest!
{Jon attempts to flex as Garfield looks on}
{Garfield flexes, revealing masses of muscles as Jon watches in amazement}
{Jon grins and flexes like Garfield as Garfield stares nonchalantly}
{Garfield again flexes, showing off his bod as Jon attempts to keep flexing while still staring shell-shocked at Garfield...}
{...but the strain is too much for Garfield, who explodes}
{Garfield is clutching a glass of water as plumes of smoke waft off of him, while Jon is on fire}
Garfield: You win...
Jon: Then why am I not happy?

The author writes:

I noticed there were an awful lot of strips (relatively speaking) with Garfield and Jon flexing, so I decided to compile them, using the hot pepper-eating contest as a framing narrative. I also wanted to have Odie from 2018-03-11 join in, but it didn't fit the format I had in mind.

Original Square Root of Minus Garfield strip: #3332.

Original strips: 1984-08-12, 1988-08-07, 1988-08-11, 2000-09-17.
