Hey pissed off and overly cynical Internet commenters complaining on this post, I hope your Friday is going well. I didn’t write this post to “troll” anyone or try to capitalize on traffic, because it actually didn’t do very well at all. The reason I wrote it is because even though a lot of Garfield jokes make me cringe today, I remember when I was a kid and I’d run out to snag the Sunday paper before my mom or dad could so I could get the comics section and read Garfield and Mother Goose and Grimm. I absolutely loved that a-hole cat when I was a kid, so I thought, “I bet there are other people out there who probably have fond memories as well,” and I spent about an hour looking through some archives to maybe make a few people happy and remind everyone that there are still new Garfield strips daily.
So if this post really upset you enough to complain about it, my sincerest apologies. I’ll continue to try my hardest not to piss in your lasagna when I write whatever I feel like writing about.
Haters gonna hate. I enjoyed it Burnsy. I held the same esteem for Garfield when I was a kid. In fact, I stole the whole Garfield series of books from Waldenbooks as a 3rd grader. Something I’m not proud of, but it happened. Oh well.
I just can’t believe he’s 36. Damn I’m getting old.
