Garfield minus Garfield

I've been a big fan of the Garfield comic strip since I was a small child, i.e. less than six feet tall. Recently, David B. (for the sake of his privacy, I will refrain from mentioning his last name) (well, how many David's do I know really?) (I mean anyone who knows me could easily guess which David I'm talking about) (I know, I'll refer to him - nay, him/her as D. Braun) (brilliant) told me about a variation on the classic Jim Davis creation.

It's called Garfield minus Garfield. The premise of it is basically to show that Jon (the pathetic owner of Garfield) is not only pathetic, but without the leading role of Garfield's thought bubbles, actions, and expressions, he turns into a bipolar, schizophrenic loser. There have been better, more thought out descriptions of his behavior, but if you're like me, you'll just enjoy looking and laughing at the comics.
