The Morning Line: One Order of Crushed Garfield, Please
Garfield sometimes entertains, more often rankles and irritates -- but today, he flat-out mystifies. Or rather, the artwork flat-out mystifies.
In today's final panel, Garfield -- at least in black-and-white -- is apparently supposed to be costumed as some sort of chocolate chip. But in truth, he looks little like a chunk o' chocolate (a melted Hershey's Kiss, at best). Really, no, the fat cat looks much more like an immense chopped garlic clove -- ready to be stuffed into a lasagna. ... If only.
So the Official 'Riffs Reader Question of the Day is: What do YOU think Garfield looks like?
JUDGE PARKER: These days, Sophie and the Cheerleaders-O-Menace have it all over "Mean Girls." I don't care how played out the phrase is: Every Sophie strip should conclude with two words: "Oh, SNAP!"
MARK TRAIL: Dead trees, dead trees, dead trees! Oh, we're on to you, Mr. Trail. These whole week about toppled dead-tree products is a metaphor for the print journalism industry, is it not? Otherwise, who else would write such stiff, stilted unnatural dialogue? Really?
LIO: And finally: Our early leader for Visual Gag of the Week (aka, the VGOW).
