Strip by: Tom Field+Jonathan Sandman
Jon: Garfield, we are in deep trouble!
Garfield: Why? You run out of new ties?
Jon: Worse than that! We're running out of jokes!
Jon: We've been going on like this for so long, we have used up every possible sardonic cat/dumb dog/dumb owner joke. We've got a few more in the vault, but then we're out!
Garfield: ... This is serious.
Jon: We have to leave now, before Jim Davis appears for his fee. Fire up the escape pod. No time for the dog! We leave now!
Garfield: But where to?
Jon: Isn't it obvious? We need somewhere that will appreciate our particular brand of repeated identical gags and two-dimensional characters!
Garfield: Of course! To Friends!
The author writes:
It's not as knowledgeable as most of them on here, and takes the mickey out of Garfield a bit, but otherwise it's just the sort of thing you do. As it says, it was originally created for our main (though very fledgling) comic, Social Networking.
