Jon: What would happen... If I tried to be a failure... And failed?
Garfield: We'd be rich!

How would they end up rich?
So, how was thanksgiving? Urp! Sorry. Really filled up.
Talk about a paradox.
This reminds me: Years ago I was having a conversation with my nephew. We were talking about how one of my nieces had her first baby. I mentioned how I felt old. My nephew asked me how I’d feel if HE had a baby. My answer: “I don’t know how I’d feel, but YOU’D be rich!”
Reminds me of this line from Louie DePalma on “Taxi”: If a loser wants to lose, since he is a loser, the only way that he can stay a loser is to win.
Only one thing wrong with Jon’s idea: The proclivity of the Garfield Universe is toward Jon being a failure, so even he tried to be a failure and somehow failed, it wouldn’t last. ;)
Sounds a bit like the line about how to fly: throw yourself at the ground and miss. ;)
I think this is based on an old Steven Wright bit. His response to the question was, “Woulld I have failed or succeeded?” Sure sonds like his kind of humour.
Jon really strikes true to his nature in this strip…. As does the cat.
Naw, knowing Jon, he’d fail at failing at failing…
The plot of “The Producers” summed up in less than 25 words.
Reminds me of the art, or, rather, knack to flying:
“The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”
This is Garfield Minus Garfield that writes itself.
Now he’s finally coming around.
