Having a Garfield Day

Whether you love or hate it, “Garfield” is incredibly popular.  However you feel, though, you’re likely to really enjoy the Random Garfield Comic Strip Generator.  You can go surrealist, or try to get a coherent story out of the script—the latter actually tends to be a lot funnier.  I’ll point you to my favorite result so far, but by all means create your own (and let us know what they are in the comments).

Found via Ferrett, who got it from someone else, and so on.

    At least as funny as the actual strips that are printed (which, I suppose, isn’t saying much).

    What does anyone think of the new ‘Garfield’ movie? I saw a trailer for it last week at the cinema – To me, that cat just isn’t Garfield!!

    I seriously think some of those Mary Worth cartoons are created with a random generator:

    OLD LADY: “But the tennis game was at 8!”

    OLD MAN : “No, that cannot be correct.”

    YOUNG WOMAN “Now I know!”

    Garfield’s legal counsel has killed the site. Bummer.

    Im an avid fan of Garfeild and am totally pissed to have missed this site. I wonder if someone could write a java applet or something to get the strips from the site. You could download three strips and get the applet to splice them together. Way beyond my skills and totally illegal of course, but I just want a laugh and theyve got enough money anyway.
