Strip by: Jamz64

{Jon is reading a newspaper. Remember newspapers? People don't really read newspapers anymore, do they? It's a bit of a dying industry. Kinda sad, since comic strips, Garfield included, were started because of newspapers, before the age of webcomics came about. Why Jon is reading a newspaper in this day and age is a mystery. It's good that he supports them, but nonetheless, this is a Garfield comic that really shows its age. Anyway, Jon, possibly in accordance with what he just read in the newspaper, speaks, in a speech balloon. Whether he sounds like Sandy Kenyon, Thom Huge, Breckin Meyer or Wally Wingert is up to you}
Jon: The world is constantly changing {There is no period at the end. Why is a mystery. Jim Davis, and other cartoonists, seem to like to leave out periods}
{Garfield is stunned, shocked, and generally surprised by what Jon has said. His eyes open wide as he stares momentarily, in the direction of the reader. He then talks as well. Well, he doesn't really talk, he just thinks, but sometimes Jon can hear Garfield's thoughts. Other times he can't. So anyway, Garfield thinks in a thought balloon. Whether he sounds like Lorenzo Music, Bill Murray, or Frank Welker is once again up to you}
Garfield: They haven't stopped making frozen pudding pops, have they? {Unfortunately, they have stopped making frozen pudding pops. They make Jello Pudding Pops, but those aren't really the same. Little does Garfield know that this particular comic will become a meme with dozens of variants, which all involve Garfield turning into something that vaguely sounds like minus}
