Comment by site admin: Sometimes the 7-panel Sunday Garfield strips just seem like a bunch of unnecessary filler around the core gag. By taking every Sunday strip from April, 2009, and paring them down to the essentials of the gags in just 3 brief panels each, qvaak here has shown that brevity is indeed the soul of wit.

Original strips: 2009-04-05, 2009-04-12, 2009-04-19, 2009-04-26.
