Memetic

I don’t usually do this, but here’s a link to an online comic… with a difference.

Garfield minus Garfield

It’s simple; the ‘author’ has removed Garfield from the comic strips and you are left with the world of Jon Arbuckle.

Some of these are incredibly poignant.

And since I’m in the comics’ mood, a few more of my favourites. I might even make a blogroll,

Wondermark – Malki! has the Poop Jokes in Top Hats thing downpat.

Monkeyfluids – Run by friend Josh, who I don’t see enough of, he swears he was doing this before he became aware of Wondermark (and I swear he was too)

xkcd – Because stick figures and jokes about math are funny, dammit.
