Character Confidential: Three Questions for Garfield
Every Sunday growing up, my brother and I would race to beat each other to the comics in the paper. My favorite comic strip has changed so many times over the years that I don't even remember what I was going for on any given day. But my brother was always racing for Garfield. The fat, orange cat was front and center on the page, and my brother loved him. He had all the compilation books and couldn't wait to see what would be in the next set of panels.
So my three questions today are for Garfield:
1. Everyone knows your favorite food is lasagna. What food do you absolutely hate?
2. Admit it — your really love Odie, right?
3. Why do you think Jon can't get a date?
To the other fans of this lazy but lovable feline, what would YOU ask Garfield? And if one of the other strips is your favorite, what would you ask those characters?
