Happy 29th birthday, Garfield!
How did we get to this before Mark Evanier did? 29 years ago today, the above strip brought Garfield to the world at large. Since then, he has consumed more lasagna than the entire cast of The Sopranos and has shed enough hair to clog Hoover Dam. Oh, and a whole lot of books, TV shows, and even a few movies.
Happy birthday, big guy– but now that you’re getting on in years, might you consider watching your weight?
