Strip by: Xindaris
Jon: I'm gonna cook Liz for dinner tonight!
Garfield: Is this your way of breaking up with her?
Jon (offscreen): Baking powder...that's basically baking soda, right?
Garfield: Go for it.
Jon (offscreen): Huh...the butter is crispy. Is that normal?
Garfield: In a comic strip, yes.
Jon (offscreen): I wonder if I should've added the eggs in before I put it in the oven.
Garfield: Does the oven have an "undo" button?
Jon (offscreen): Okay, where's the fire extinguisher?
Garfield: Right where you left it the last time you cooked.
(There is a horrifying mess in the cooking tray)
Jon: I am so, so sorry.
Garfield: Jon's smart enough to feel disappointed in himself, but too dense to do anything right.
The author writes:
Given how easy this is and how long ago by submission time, I'm shocked I haven't already seen it up on the website by now.
And I think the answer to Garfield's first question in this version is an obvious 'yes', to say nothing of the fact that he doesn't seem to care.
