Strip by: Peter Makholm

Jon: The world is constantly changing.
{Garfield looks shocked}
Garfield: They haven't stopped making frozen Pudding Pops, have they?

The author writes:

The initial idea was just to replace Garfield in the second panel with Garfield from the first Garfield strip and call it Garfield Garfield Garfield. But then I read the dialogue and this became obvious. Even though Garfield seems to be constantly changing, the change seems to be asymptotic. The Garfields in the two first panels are a year apart, the third panel is 22 years later.
