Strip by: Andrew McGrae
Garfield: Did you know cats can talk? We just don't choose to
Jon: Garfield, I'm home!
Garfield: Who cares?!
Garfield: If we did, NOBODY would like us
The author writes:
It always bugged me how this strip didn't do the obvious thing and actually show Garfield talking as he claims to be able to.
Note that cat speech is slightly different from human speech which explains why Garfield's text is in ugly speech balloons. Yes, that explains it, it was an artistic choice.
