"Garfield Minus Garfield" Equals Genius Comedy!

My friend Ryan just sent me a link to one of the funniest sites I have ever seen.

It's Garfield Minus Garfield and as Ryan says...
"It is exactly as it sounds: Garfield comics minu Garfield.
It gives you a great look at the real life of John Arbuckle."

The main page of Garfield Minus Garfield says...

"Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness in a quiet American suburb."

I have spent the last 10 minutes laughing to hard that I not only have tears in my eyes, but I also have done not one, but TWO spit takes after mistakenly drinking a little Diet Coke and then reading another strip. Here are a a few of my favorites so far...





Genius! Thanks, Ryan.

Oh the last one is GREAT! Who knew Garfield would be FUNNIER without Garfield??? Course, considering the strip has sucked for years, anything is probably an improvement.

HUGS..
