Strip by: Edwin Chee

Jon: {Looking at a piece of paper} Let's see... next on my "to-do" list...
Jon: {Head turns into Waluigi's head} Too bad, Waluigi time!
{Garfield springs up in surprise and landed on his head}
Jon: {Head turns back to normal} Okay, that's done.
Garfield: I hate that list.

The author writes:

This probably requires some explanation because of how random it seems. You see, in a webcomic called Brawl in the Family, Waluigi (from the Mario franchise) is cast as a crazy character that almost every other character doesn't want to associate themselves with. It's kind of like how Jon is crazy and the outcast (though there are some people in common with him, such as his club), so they have something in common.

In that webcomic, Waluigi could also intrude on others' personal space unexpectedly, so that's how the idea came about, since it comes off as something that wouldn't be out of place for Jon to do.

To finish, here's a complimentary video of the voice of Waluigi saying that line.
