    Noise, boredom…….. With and without Garfield.

    Doesn’t altering the text defeat the entire purpose of Garfield Minus Garfield?

    I didn’t know Garfield Minus Garfield edited the text as well.

    Yeah, don’t change the words. That’s cheating! You have been warned.

    I can’t believe they changed the text!! It’s funnier with “boredom.”

    I guess they wanted to portrait Jon as crazy. But yeah, I don’t like how they changed words either.

    I agree with HelmetHead.

    Not only am I against changing the text, but it was better before they changed it.

    With “boredom,” it’s a perfect example of the existential ennui this whole removing Garfield idea was supposed to be bringing to the forefront. Changed to noise, it’s just an irritatingly dumb gag. It makes no point and has no relation to the original. It’s just lame.

    Did the person who invented this strip let someone else take over for a while while he went on vacation? Becaue whoever did this seems to be working at cross purposes to the whole endeavor. If you really think you’re that clever, make up your own strips. Submit new dialog to the Dilbert website or something.

    This strip is supposed to be different from every other amateurish fan mash-up because it strips away the veneer of jocularity to reveal the deep loneliness and misery that was already there. But rather than removing an obstacle that obscures the inherent emptiness of John’s life, this revision adds something that obscures the inherent emptiness and makes it a random gag, and a bad one at that. Very disappointing.

    Four taps… Noise in his head… Tormenting him…
    Something go wrong with the regeneration, Master?
    The sound of drums.

    Agreed. Starting to be a few too many exceptions to the rules that makes this good. So would be forced to stop watching it if it kept it up.

    “Based on the phenomenon ignited by Dan Walsh’s hilarious and wildly popular webcomic”
    I don’t think Paws, inc. is connected with Dan Walsh. They took his idea and messed it up.

    Yep—I’m with you guys here. Changing the text in the “G.M.G.” version changes the whole message of the original comic. Lousy idea.

    I think boredom works better than noise. DON’T CHANGE THE TEXT!

    It defeats the purpose, I agree.
