Strip by: RetrospectionsOfLife

Jon: It's New Year's Eve resolution time, Garfield!
Garfield: Go for it
Jon {raising his finger with cautious enthusiasm}: This year, I...
{Jon dejectedly rests his head upon his hand, in a decidedly existential state of despair}
Jon: Heck with it. Wanna order a pizza?
{Garfield clutches his stomach with desperation and eagerness}
Garfield: Make it two!

The author writes:

It's a few days into the new year at the time of writing. Having the same feelings that many others can relate to during the first part of the New Year, I then remembered the original Garfield strip and wondered, "What if Jon didn't even have the optimism to even bother suggesting any New Year resolutions?"

It's amazing how disproportionately Garfield edits consume my time, compared to other, more substantial opportunities in my life. What better way to start 2021, I suppose?
