Garfield: Eat your heart out, Banksy

The author writes:

I was travelling in Cologne, Germany, when this struck my eye. Naturally I had to preserve it for all time here.

The original actually said: "Du hast zwar Recht, aber ich finde meine Meinung besser. Ja! Da!", which Google translates as "You are right, but I think my opinion is better. Yes! There!". This sounds like a comment on the modern social trend of people giving as much weight to personal opinions as to the truth, so I guess this is some sort of political and/or social commentary.

I decided to replace it with a more Garfield-esque social commentary.

If you'd like to see exactly where you can see this SRoMG in the wild, it's here: Google Streetview image. You can't see it in that image, presumably taken before Garfield appeared, but he is on the yellow wall directly below the red BARBER sign on the right.
