Strip by: Sloublues

Irma: Would you care for an after-dinner coffee drink?
Jon {his spindly neck dwarfed by a giant collar}: Sure! What have you got?
Irma: Well, there's your regular and your decaf
Garfield: You've gotta love a diner

The author writes:

One wonders how Jon affords such a large food budget on a cartoonist's salary. The answer is that he buys his clothes at the local secondhand store, but because the universe loves to mess with him, all the men's shirts are always at least three sizes too large for him. Thus we see the outlandish proportions of collar to neck, and he's always got that backfat which is really just the way-too-big shirt bunching up back there.
