Strip by: Redgreen

Liz {approaching Jon while Garfield, holding a mug of (presumably) coffee, watches}: Jon?
Jon: Yes?
Liz: Kerple nop sizz fwango mook gweeble adeewong
{Jon, perplexed, makes a slight aside glance. Garfield is still holding his coffee (or whatever), and his neutral expression has not changed}
{Exit Liz}
Jon: I will never understand women
Garfield: I think she just spouted gibberish

The author writes:

Hi! Redgreen here! You may remember me as the creator of the semi-memetic "Linguistics with Liz" template. There has been a sizable influx of LwL variations and spinoffs* since my strip's inception and publication, and I think now is the perfect time for me to introduce this take on the source of my creation!

Given how nonsensical Liz's speech in the middle panel is, Garfield's sarcasm fits in well with his personality. But what if Garfield was more of a Captain Obvious?
