Why Having a Baby Reminds me of Garfield Minus Garfield

I love the site Garfield Minus Garfield.

If you don’t know the site Garfield minus Garfield  it’s a website run by a guy named Dan Walsh who takes Garfield comic strips and digitally erases Garfield from them.   The reason I love Garfield minus Garfield is that when you erase Garfield from the Garfield comic strip, what you get is three panels of Jon Arbuckle interacting with nothing, looking like a complete lunatic.

That being said, I’ve taken a good long look at my own schedule, and if you were to erase all evidence of my having a baby, nothing I do makes any sense either.

If this panel were more true to life I would’ve drawn nine additional people on the sidewalk, all of whom give me weird looks every time I lose my shit over seeing a bus.

It must look like I’m always watching an invisible play that I really, really love.

 

And finally…

Hope you enjoyed that play-by-play of a bowel movement I just narrated.  I’m not giving away whose poop it was so feel free to let your imagination run wild.

If you enjoyed this post, sign up in the sidebar to follow the blog, or like The Ugly Volvo on Facebook and be privy to a steady stream of fairly non-offensive baby-related material!  Or follow me on Twitter so that you can wonder why I don’t use my twitter account more often.  (I really do mean to, I just always forget it’s there!)  

And if you’ve never read it, go spend some time checking out Garfield Minus Garfield, which is also wonderful.  If you’ve never checked out the original Garfield comic strip, I will assume you are a baby goat living in a cave in the Himalayas.  How cool for you that you have internet access somehow!

  1. […] You may remember (or probably not) a while back I linked a website called Garfield minus Garfield. Meet the baby version, parents looking cuckoo without their babies. […]

  2. My version of this would be me, surrounded by office colleagues, saying things I should only say with with baby. Like being on a full elevator, pressing the button, and saying “Boop!”
