I did not believe this could be awesome, so when I heard buzzings about this Garfield Minus Garfield thing a couple of months ago, I was all like "whatevs," because almost nothing is as good as people say it is, but then my good pal in Philly showed me the site. And Jon spoke to me.
Jon's existence is lonely sans kitty, and he often gets hand cramps and does laundry (just like you! And probably Jim Davis!). He talks to himself. He puts on costumes. He yells at the world, and at you, The Reader. And at invisible things. In short, he becomes mentally ill in a totally accessible way. You should check them out. They will make you feel sad, and then you will laugh again.
Also, there is no Odie, or Nermal, who were both clearly annoying and needed to be excised from Garfield anyway.
