Jon Arbuckle and the Spiders from Mars

O.K., you ready? Figure out this humdinger: Jon ponders, “Who knows? Maybe there are beings on other planets.” And Garfield think-replies, “Yeah … Chickens would be nice,” bearing some nefarious-looking fangs. What the fuck? This makes zero sense. It’s not a gag. Not even a dry, almost-funny bit. Hell, it doesn’t even amount to anything resembling narrative or logic. It’s just random words. Yeah. Chickens would be nice. What? Why? Because Garfield eats chickens? And can travel to outer space to conquer the chicken planet? Or does he mean chicken in its metaphorical “fraidy-cat” sense? Because that doesn’t really help matters any. And what’s up with them wicked sharp teeth? This is fucking stupid. Does Jim Davis have an editor reviewing this claptrap at Universal Press Syndicate or is he so titanic a funny-pager that he can barf on poster board and receive unqualified praise? And who cancelled U.S. Acres?
