LSTAR: As I'm sure is the case for quite a few of the Internet savvy crowd, I lose a not-insignificant chunk of my day to following a few webcomics. From impractical self-help guides, to the occasional flash of nerdy brilliance... But every so often you come across something so bizarre it's hard to explain why its so compelling...
Dan Walsh's Garfield Minus Garfield is one such strip. Walsh's continuing mission is to take original strips from Jim Davis' Garfield and photoshop out all references to the eponymous Garfield, leaving only the support characters to continue alone in a confusing and empty existence. The result, understandably, shows Jon, the original strip's other central character, as such a freaking sociopath it's hard not to laugh.
And the rest of the comedy is simply wondering what the original joke was supposed to be... I'm not sure I'll ever get round to finding out though... I mean, Garfield's not really my cup of tea.
