Garfield minus Garfield. Now that's funny.

I enjoy reading “the funnies”. Back in the early days, Garfield was really very funny. Then, for a long time, it wasn't. Well, I didn't think it was, maybe it was just me. Over the past couple of years, I think it's started to be funny again.

But Garfield has never been as funny (in a twisted, disturbing sort of way) as garfield minus garfield.

In case that site has already been closed down by a cease and desist order, I'll explain the premise: next time you read Garfield, imagine the strip without…Garfield. Mentally remove him and his dialog from the strip. Poor Jon, poor schizophrenic Jon.

You'll never look at Garfield the same way again.
