I’ve known about Garfield minus Garfield for a while, and it’s an old internet meme so you probably know about it too. but I went and read a bunch of them today and they really perked me up so I thought I would share it with you.

The basic premise is that Garfield is a cat and can’t talk. Even in the comic there are just thought bubbles. Jon Arbucle is basically a depressed lonely man going insane, and if you remove Garfield from the strip it becomes really clear.

it’s an interesting idea, and has had an impact on the strip. Jim Davis reads it and introduced a full time girlfriend for Jon from now on, so his life won’t be so bleak.
