Strip by: SonicLover

{Jon and Garfield. Garfield is eating from his food bowl}
Jon: You know, Garfield...
{Garfield stops eating and turns to face Jon}
Jon: I'm not ableist, but...
{Garfield jams his food bowl into Jon’s mouth and starts to walk away}
Garfield: Then don't be

The author writes:

Rule of thumb: if a sentence begins with "I'm not _____, but...", the rest of it can be accurately paraphrased as "...actually, yes, I absolutely am."

I was lucky enough to have the original of this strip saved on my computer, as I'd downloaded it a few years back in order to trim out the last panel for use as a reaction image. Not that I needed the luck, since it's in the free sample of book #16.

Original strip: 1987-06-02.
