I've just got to ask Steven, are you sure that Garfield was funny, or are you just getting to that point in life where a cat wanting lasagna is funny, Family Circus is both touching and amusing and you actually wonder what will happen next in For Better Or For Worse?
I mean the next paragraph was about you forgetting something as well...

That said, I'd never paid attention to Garfield for years, and had forgotten how truly painfully bad it was, until someone on the community board posted a link to lasagna cat (http://www.lasagnacat.com/).
Labeled as a tribute to Jim Davis, you've never noticed just how bad that strip is until you've seen it acted out live.

Was it the "get in the bag?" strip? Because that was kinda funny, but only if you take it in a way it probably wasn't intended.

Honestly, I don't remember what the strip or punchline was, just that I actually laughed. Finding one Garfield in a few decades funny doesn't strike as any sign of senility, but if I'd found a second funny since I'd start worrying.

Oh! Wait! This morning Jon decides to dust his house and sprays himself in the face with the cleaner! Pure! Comedy! Gold! (At least it's nice to know my mental state is safe for yet another day.)

For funny Garfield strips, look here:

Now I read the strip in the paper every day and imagine it this way. Some days it doesn't work, but when it does I nearly fall on the floor laughing.

Wow... it's kinda scary how surreal and funny that is! It does work that way!

Yeah, those actually made me laugh - and not at how bad it is, which is the only way Garfield can make me laugh.

That's funny. Garfield is funny...when he's not there.
