Strip by: Michael Stangeland

Jon: Have you been harassing Mrs. Feeny?!
Garfield: Yes.
Garfield: I harassed her, and I'd gladly do it again! Bwa-ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!
Jon: I'm pretty sure that over 25 years of this schtick has established I can read your mind.
Garfield: $#%*!

The author writes:

While I liked the original version enough, there was something about it using the idea of Jon not being able to understand Garfield's thoughts that I was just unable to ignore.

And so I decided to edit it to reflect what the scene might look like if it was consistent with all the Garfield comics that have pretty much relied on Jon understanding what Garfield is thinking for their punchline.
