Plot suggestion: Jon Arbuckle opens a series of Garfield-themed pizza restaurants that serve weird Garfiend-themed food that no one wants and lets you pay for food by playing phone app games.

Story arc ends with Scooby-Doo putting two rounds through the back of Jon's head to clear the way for Scooby-themed food.

Garfield hates Mondays, because on the weekend he is glorious joyful colour, and on Monday he needs to go back to dull lifeless black and white and is well aware he has to go through another week of that monochrome nightmare before he shall see a single colour again.

maybe the twist is that garfield just thinks its monday much more often than once a week and its the internal monologue of a cat that is frustrating to own

Garfield hates Mondays because that's when he hurts Odi. Despite how callous he acts, he secretly hates himself for doing that. But he just can't stop.

We all hate our lives at least 1/7th of the time, it's actually pretty smart to pick a day and concentrate the misery there. Don't overdo it though, I once tried tried to pack my yearly ennui into an 8 week rage streak Jan-Feb and got the gnarliest hemorrhoids

Garfield is a self-hating cat and wants to me more like humans which he secretly (shamefully) sees as a "master race" as they are able to not only deliver lasagna, but create it. Unable to fully pass as a human, he adopts human traits and behaviors. One of the first he picked up on was the irrational human disdain for Mondays. Being a cat in a closed household he doesn't understand WHY Mondays are disliked, only that they are, which is why his loud complaints are always vague.

Jon gets paid $10k a month on Patreon to draw hentai.

He spends it all on vet visits, frozen lasagna, and cases of dog cum.

as per my last email, we'll touch base, circle back and synergize when you admit you fucked my wife


garfield had a job, he was CFO at a major pharmaceutical company and monday is the weekly anniversary of the day he quit when the the board refused his proposal for the new budget. he lives off dividends from stock options.

ive been waiting for this thread because, as luck would have it, i was at that board meeting and managed to grab a pic of his proposal:



and NO jon doesn't have a job ffs, he's on parole for the murder of lyman.

Irrational? Hatred of having to return to work after a precious 2 days of freedom is about the only rational thing we all share
