Strip by: Mr. Skullhead

{Jon and Garfield are at the counter. Jon is "slupping" coffee}
Jon: My coffee's cold
Jon: Boy, I hate cold coffee. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it
{Garfield looks nonplussed}
Jon: Nope, there's nothing in the world worse than cold coffee
{Garfield has his face down on the counter, slapping it in frustration}
Jon: I'll bet if I tried as hard as I could, I couldn't possibly think of anything worse than cold coffee
{Garfield is visibly twitching in irritation}
{Garfield has maniacally grabbed his coffee and Jon's pants}
Garfield: Jon, I gutted a man, he whined less than you!!!!!
{Garfield is gone}
Jon: So that's what happened to the mailman

The author writes:

Another reference to the TV show King of the Hill. I'm really pleased how well the quote fit in the existing strip. The line at the end is a reference to the fact that we never seem to see the mailman character anymore in modern Garfield.
