Garfield (4/10/10)

Garfield engages in a bit of (accidental?) self-criticism today, pointing out how little the strip has changed in 30-plus years. I’ve been reading Garfield since I was a kid and the punchlines have largely remained the same: Garfield is lazy; Garfield likes lasagna; Garfield hates Mondays; Garfield hates spiders; Garfield hates going to the vet; Garfield doesn’t particularly mind mice; Garfield likes to kick Odie off the edge of the table. And that’s pretty much it. Maybe today will mark the beginning of a new, much more interesting, period for the strip, in which Garfield and his housemates ponder the meaning of existence using the kind of roundabout dialogue that would make Samuel Beckett proud. Is that too much to ask for?
