For help on how to follow a comic title,
Garfield must be a fan of Beatrix Potter; Mr. Tod the fox tried to play the first trick on Tommy Brock the badger. Tommy had moved into Mr. Tod’s den and was asleep in his bed; while he slept, Mr. Tod dangled a bucket of water over him, but Tommy thwarted him.

Jon’s parents grow rubber tree plants on their farm? Awesome!
“A private cage in the primate house”? I don’t get it. Humans are primates already, and, as the Kratt brothers, Martin and Chris, pointed out on their 1990s show, Kratts’ Creatures, we do many things that monkeys do. A major component of the diet of the pygmy marmoset (the world’s smallest monkey) of South America is tree sap. We humans consume maple tree sap as well, after we boil it into syrup. Many primates, such as capuchin monkeys, eat insects, and according to The Big Book of Animal Records (1985) by Annette Tison and her husband, Talus Taylor, Amazonian tribespeople consider the larvae of the Titan beetle a delicacy. However, in this book, the Titan beetle is mistakenly referred to as the Hercules beetle, and the actual Hercules beetle is referred to as the rhinoceros beetle (they are featured on page 26, along with the Goliath beetle of Africa).
Don’t you mean “for ‘consuming’ his milk and cookies last year”?
Why does Garfield have a shadow but Ricky and the spider don’t?
The chart doesn’t actually say that, Garfield. Jon just loves to make put-downs about your weight.
11 feet tall? That means that Garfield would have to weigh as much as a water buffalo—about 1,400 pounds.
Why didn’t #2 tell #5 about the homework problem?
