Strip by: superluser
Garfield: You're saying we didn't get invited to a New Year's Party!
Garfield: Come on on, everybody... and make sure the goat wipes his feet.
Garfield: Do we have a goat?!
Garfield: Start a fire!
Garfield: And then we'll sacrifice a goat!
Garfield: Ahhhh... the smell of burning goats.
Jon: Are you here for the humn sacrifice?

I was searching through some strips when I saw the strip for 1990-12-29, which seemed a little bloodthirsty for a newspaper comic strip. A little digging shows that Garfield seems to have a thing for slaughtering the Yule Goat, or other types of sacrifice over the New Year's celebration. I just imagined the whole process coming together for this strip.
I must say that I had a lot of fun making this. The exaggerated postures using daily Garfield in a Sunday perspective make it very interesting, I think. I wonder why Davis doesn't do that more often.
