Note to Jim Davis: Don't read this

Via Amber Rhea, I've discovered...Garfield Minus Garfield. Not since Dysfunctional Family Circus has anyone deconstructed a cartoon strip so thoroughly.

From the site itself:

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness [sic] in a quiet American suburb.

Maybe the author could try something similar with For Better or For Worse.
