What if Garfield really didn't talk?

seal7 has pointed me towards this awesome set of posts: Garfield comics without Garfield's thoughts. A couple of people have begun to wonder: what would the Garfield comic strips be like without the sarcastic, philosophical comments by the fat cat. After all, he doesn't talk, right? If you know Garfield you know that he only thinks. So what if you remove these thoughts from the reader's view? This is what happens.

Most of the strips make you realize just how much of a poor miserable bastard Jon really is.

I mean, he's talking to a cat, for crying out loud.

And thinks the cat is replying.

Major loser.

Or maybe he's just on drugs?

Some strips suddenly turn into deep philosophical insights into life:

Others portray our innermost feelings. Example! This is how I feel all the time:

That too:

Not to mention that. I should remember this next time I'm bored.

Then, of course, strips suddenly turning into accurate depictions of life with cats.

I mean, which cat owner hasn't experienced this before? You get up, you're still tired, your cat is standing next to you, screaming the house down... 30 seconds later, you're standing in the kitchen, pantless and feeding the damn cat.

Some turn into plain slapstick:

And last but now least, some comics turn out to be plain bizarre:

In case you're wondering what the hell is going on here, here's the original strip.


Mind you, you don't need to change the strip to achieve that effect. This is a real, actual strip as it appeared:

Does anyone have ANY idea what the hell is going on here? O.o;;; It's real, I swear! Proof.

Garfieeeld~ I used to be so obsessed with those comics. xD; I got kinda depressed when I first realized those were thought bubbles and he wasn't actually talking.

As for the last comic, I looked sauerkraut up in Wikipedia. I'm guessing it has a really strong smell or something.
