The Morning Line: Garfield's Secret E-Files...

By Michael Cavna


GARFIELD: The unhappy kitty is hacked off. (UPS)Enlarge Comic

Suddenly, Garfield has conspicuously acquired yet higher proficiency at the keyboard. If he can actually send nasty emails, who knows what else this kitty is capable of?
If we were able to hack into the Arbuckle files, what might we find? Let us imagine how Garfield might spend his screen time.

1. 9:02 a.m. -- Google "Cat Fancy." Search for pictures of self.
2. 9:20 a.m. -- Google syndicate site. Search for glam pictures of self.
3. Noon -- Nap.
4. 3:08 p.m. -- Post embarrassing videos of Jon sleeping/waking/talking/merely-being-alive.
5. 5:15 p.m. -- Search for "pasta porn" -- a.k.a., "cheesy" closeup photos of lasagna noodles.
6. 8:45 p.m -- E-mail Jim Davis to inquire about late royalties check.
7. 9 p.m. -- "Sleep."

SIDENOTES...


PRICKLY CITY: The conservative strip fires a shot across the aisle. (UPS)Enlarge Comic

PRICKLY CITY: To borrow from Lloyd Bentsen: "Scott Stantis, sir -- We have watched Bill Maher. We have interviewed Bill Maher. We have met Bill Maher backstage. You, sir, are no Bill Maher."




BALDO: Like the lesson, but teacher needs to work on spelling. (UPS).Enlarge Comic

BALDO: We wholeheartedly applaud the effort to educate people about famous figures of Latino descent. Which makes it all the more unfortunate that in a piece of educational outreach, the name of "Lynda" Carter is misspelled.

Apparently "Linda" has had some work done on top.

And Prickly City continues to dive into the "What the heck is that drawing?" ditch.

Who woulda thunkit...

Results 1 - 10 of about 407 for "pasta porn". (0.25 seconds)

Good point on "Linda". What sort of role model for an intellectual little girl is this? I'd expect to see that on the Doones' Sarah Palin Action figure.

Best lines today: "oh good, she even lies" and "hey, Iron Man, can you get these wrinkles out of my cape?"

Although I can't figure out who the heck F&E are supposed to be. What's the MM? Mermaid Man?

When will you guys drop Classic Peanuts? How dead does the artist have to be before you give up?

Actually "Lynda" Carter was born Linda Jean Córdova Carter. So technically Gracie did spell it properly.

The print version of the Indianapolis Star had "Lynda". So who changed it?

David: The syndicate chose not to send a replacement strip with a "corrected" spelling. The safe bet, then: Any newspapers that chose to change the spelling to "Lynda" did so individually and independently.
