I have been a comic strip reader for decades and loved the advent of the lasagna-eating cat named Garfield. The strip is dependably funny and the classic alpha-cat and his dog foil. Odie was hilarious and always good for many laughs. He always had a pure heart and simple desires. But was this his true nature?
“After all these years the goofy owner gets a girl. What about me? I need someone to complete me,” Odie told Garfield.
“Ol’ buddy you need a team to complete you; like they did with Lee Majors in the Six Million Dollar man.”
“Just once can’t you be supportive?”
“You’re right. Let’s work on your K9 Harmony profile.”
Using Garfield’s tablet the boys get started.
“I am a famous comic strip gentleman seeking companion. Likes wet balls, rich kibble, running in the park and marking hydrants.”
“There is more to me than that,” Odie said.
“I am extremely gullible.”
“What does that mean?”
“You like to play.”
