Text window: From: Garfield 🍕😴🍕😴

The author writes:

What if Garfield's text messages were limited by the Unicode Standard, rather than by Jim Davis's imagination? After all, "pet food" and "pillow" are not currently emoji characters. I figured Garfield's text expressed a general desire for food and sleep (rather than, say, an intent to cover Jon's bed in cat food). To that end, "food" was represented by pizza (one of Garfield's favorites), while "sleep" became a sleeping face.
