Strip by: Ephreal

{After Garfield ate all the food in the house, Jon realizes that he must eat Garfield in order to survive.
Garfield, looking shocked, is lying uncooked on a plate. Jon appears ready to begin eating Garfield. A cooked turkey is flying in from the right. Jon looks shocked at this}
{Garfield has swapped positions with the turkey. Garfield points towards the ceiling in an attempt to distract Jon}
Jon {looking upwards}: What? Where?
{Garfield is nowhere to be seen while the turkey remains on the plate. Jon mourns the loss of his large, uncooked Garfield meal. Apparently this has happened several times now}
Jon: He did it again

The author writes:

I'll admit that I'm not sure whether Garfield was about to be eaten by Jon and escaped due to the timely arrival of a cooked turkey, or if Garfield was being chased by a cooked turkey to a waiting Jon and managed to elude their clutches by confusing Jon. Given that the first seems a little more likely, the transcript covers that case. Hopefully Jon went shopping after this and got some food. While Garfield would make a large meal, I don't think Jon would take the loss of Garfield very well.
