This dude is clearly clueless and a little bumbling. We all need a little slapstick in our lives, don't we?
For my birthday in 2nd grade my best friend gave me a Garfield book that involved a tropical island and sacrificing a woman to the volcano to please the gods and when Garfield decided to try to throw Odie into the volcano instead I thought he was so hilariously clever! Has Garfield ever really been funny? I doubt it. He sure does look good in fondant!
