Strip by: Muchacho1994

Jon: Garfield, {Garfield looks at Jon} did you know everything evolves from a lower life form?
Garfield: ?
{Sadly, cats don't understand biology, so Garfield leaves to go do something else.}
Garfield: I'm hungry.
{Jon watches Garfield walk away with a "Well, that was pointless" look}

The author writes:

When I saw the original strip again yesterday, I started wondering why Jon was telling his cat random science facts, and what even prompted him to do so in the first place. Also, if this weren't a comic, Garfield wouldn't care anyway; even in the strip, he usually only has the mental capacity to care about eating, sleeping, and abusing everyone around him. You could tell him "Did you know water is made of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen?" or "Did you know the diameter of the moon is 2,159 miles [3,474 km]?" and get the same blank stare. Thus, I updated the strip to reflect this.
