No. 1090: A Birthday Tradition

A Birthday Tradition

First | Previous | 2012-05-13 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Manyhills

Jon: 24 years is a long time. What's the secret to your longevity?
{beat}
Jon: I seeeeeee...
Garfield: Wait, wait, there's more.
Jon: 25, huh? To what do you attribute your longevity?
{beat}
Jon: Ah.

The author writes:

The same joke, repeated just under a year apart. Although there is one key difference in the execution: the lack of comeback in the 2003 strip means it can be made more poignant by assuming Garfield is in fact dead.

Original strips: 2002-06-18, 2003-06-11.
