Garfield Minus Garfield

I won't lie: I've hated Garfield for the better part of twenty years, now. I remember that I thought he was funny and hip in like 5th grade... and then I started to realize that the strip just isn't funny. It's not funny, that is... until you remove the title character from his own strip. From the site:
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 and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.
Go to Garfield Minus Garfield RIGHT NOW. It's awesome.

Ah, Jon Arbuckle. In the proud tradition of characters like Al Bundy and Meg Griffin, he exists to suffer for our amusement.
