Strip by: Andrew Kepple

{Wobbly-looking Garfield walks towards Lyman and Jon.}
Garfield {slapping Jon upside the head}: TURN UP THE AIR CONDITIONING!
SFX: Whop!
Jon: Poo!
Jon: He's trying to tell me to turn the heat up.

The author writes:

#523 ("Melt") reminded me of another Garfield comic that I remember reading in the early 90s where Jon warns Garfield that if he eats any more his weight will cause the Earth to break orbit and "plunge into the sun". I couldn't find it in the archive, but I thought that Garfield's solution, "Turn up the air conditioning!" would have made a good alternate ending to the comic used in "Melt".

However I did find two other comics with those keywords, that combined to produce this: 1979-02-09 and 2004-09-04.

Original strips: 1979-02-09, 2004-09-04.
