Yet another entertaining way to despair at the absurdity of existence? Or insipid pomo rubbish?

Garfield Minus Garfield







Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?







Remembering, too, that Garfield with Garfield plumbs the depths of comic strip excruciation, only slighty mitigated by the bowels of hell that is The Family Circus.

I'll hedge my bets and vote for an "entertaining exercise in postmodern nihilism." Quality!

Cheers to Kasey for the heads up.

Oh my God, I'm fucking dying here.

I don't think I've ever laughed that hard at something that's really just bleak and horrific.
