Strip by: MadDogBV

{Garfield widens his eyes in surprise}
{Garfield shoos mice out of his vitamin pill jar}
Garfield: Shoo, mice. Out of my vitamin pills
Garfield: Mice get into everything
Garfield: Somebody should chase them out of here
Garfield: I wonder why they wanted the vitamins?
Garfield: It's not like they have any health benefits
Garfield: Scientists have proven vitamins are not only useless but harmful
Garfield: Come to think of it, I probably shouldn't take them either
Garfield: But let's face it, ol' Garfield's never been a healthy eater

The author writes:

The 1980s sure were a different time. The original joke in this comic has been completely torpedoed for a cynical health rant by our titular cat, so now this reads like something you'd see on a modern day webcomic penned by a pre-health or science major with an axe to grind - no visual gag and nary a punchline, just Garfield walking and talking. Which is funny, I guess, if you're into that sort of thing.

If you didn't actually know about vitamins being harmful, here's a useful link.
