    Don’t give up, Stephan — there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

    I hope Jim Davis isn’t that rich. Garfield is not that impressive!

    Now I wonder to whom goes the “Peanuts” royalties now that Schulz passed away 14 years ago.

    Among them is Stephan Pastis. Not really joking about that, Pastis is on the board of the Charles Schultz Museum. One wouldn’t believe it from the strip but Pastis himself has spoken quite highly of Schulz. He was one of his inspirations and also the reason he’s doing Pearls. Scott Adams made the strip huge by telling his fans to check it out. Charles Schulz actually looked over some of his early stuff when he was looking to break into the comics, gave him some pointers, and encouraged him to pursue his current career. He credits a number of folks with being inspirations to him and helping him out.

    Cats like rats. Time to let rat go?

    Leave quietly. Then get your revenge by selling “Pissing Garfield” bumper stickers and decals.

    Wouldn’t that be “Spraying Garfield” decals? I’ve long wondered if Garfield would ever cut loose. His personality makes it seem like has he hasn’t been “cut.”

    Hey, Mr. Davis! Mr. Davis! I wouldn’t mind a dirty BMW!

    Give it up, Cartoon-Boy, and throw yourself on the mercy of the Czar!

    Nah, Garfield’s been neutered for decades. Open secret.

    And if I recall, when Stephan does an arc like this, it’s usually because he and the rival are, in fact, really good friends…

    Stephan Pastis says: “Mr Davis, I’ll do ANYTHING to you ask!!!”
    Mr Davis: “And when you say ’ANYTHING” Pastis, do you mean ANYTHING?"
    A few minutes later Stephan Pastis exclaims: “Oh, it’s twue. It’s twue. It’s twue, it’s twue!”
