Now, as we all know, Garfield in its current form, well, really sucks. It's unfunny, it's boring, it just sucks.

Thus, it reaches the level of bad-ness in that ANY changes you make to it improves it in some way.

So, Pit, this is a challenge. I've seen on other sites how people have made Garfield funny (removing Garfield's dialouge, removing Garfield entirely, throwing panels together at random, cutting off the third panel, even replacing Jon with Conan the Barbarian), but now YOU must try as well.


I'm honestly quite afraid of what you'll come up with....


Best of luck to you all. Surprise me.

The only way to make Garfield funny is to make use of internet cat jokes, i.e. Long Cat, etc.

Garfield > TS.

Posting a thread claiming he is not funny is silly...if you don't like it don't read it :S

Anyway, free speech I guess.

I like Garfield Minus Garfield the best -- take out Garfield. I am not a man who hates on Garfield, but GmG makes the strip at least 4 times funnier.

Honestly, that's more like how I feel on the matter.

I dunno, it's just that Garfield is SO CLOSE to being absolutely brilliant again (though, granted, in a different sense than it was in the old days), but instead just wallows in its own mediocrity........it sucks, yet it was so great before.....probably because Davis doesn't actually write it anymore...

But yeah, so, make Garfield funny-ER, then....however you want it to be said.

I just figure the Pit is twisted enough to come up with something absolutely mind-blowing.

You know, Garfield is one of the most famous comic strips in the UK. I'd imagine they were doing something right.

What? sleeping with the owner of a record company? Face it, thats the only way Kelly Clarkson, Fergie & 50 cent could ever get a record deal!!! & as for their record sales 7-10 year olds still need something to listen to!

Maybe a better example would be Little Britain or Catherine Tate?

There are actually people out there who find them funny. Just like there's people out there who find Garfield funny.

Nope, they're actually good musicians.

Just because you don't like them doesn't make them suck.

And you're an idiot for thinking it does.

Who are you trying to convince? Him or you? Everyone in the world knows that when someone says something sucks, they're expressing an opinion. The term sucks is short hand for, "I don't like it." So, why must you people always point out that these things aren't fact if you know they're not facts?

..But I'm biased, because I think they suck, too. Damn Fergie.. ruin my Black Eyed Peas.

All I'm saying is, they have talent, so who is he to say they don't have talent?

I have no problem with people having opinions, but when they state theirs as fact I get pissed off.

But that's my point. You know they're not facts, so why do you care? You know he's not saying that no one likes them. He's saying they're lame. Talented people can be lame. Andy Warhol was talented, but he was a lame guy. And he was creepy. But maybe that's just because I associate him with George McFly from Back to the Future, because of the Doors movie. But I'm kinda losing track of what I'm saying. Anyway.. Sure, the man's a good painter, but seriously.. Painting soup cans is lame.

No way, buddy. No way.
