Officers responded and "spotted a gang member walking down the street cuddling a life-sized Garfield stuffed animal," Police Chief Joe Romero told me.

How exactly can you tell if a Garfield stuffed animal is life sized?

An equally disillusioned Romero said: "What's next, my vice officer telling me he arrested Betty Boop for streetwalking?"

Better get John Chimpo in for questioning, Chief.

An equally disillusioned Romero [a police chief, not Ric] said: "What's next, my vice officer telling me he arrested Betty Boop for streetwalking?"

"Boop-boop will you cost you $40, but if you want da-boop too, that'll be another $20."

What's with the overheard section directly below? How is a teenage boys' conversation about vegetables newsworthy? And don't say that it's not news, it's fark, because this came from THEIR website.

"I finally ate too much lasagna"

Garfield is packing? Well, that's one way to keep Odie away from the lasagna.

HA HA H.....

The second ammendment clearly spells out every Americans right to keep and bear plush cats.

He hates Mondays. We can all relate.

We need a Last Boyscout picture over here!!!!

Dear God, why did I read to the END of that shiatty article?

Part 2: I heard some kids talk about vegetables
Part 3: Someone's brother pronounces a street name stupidly, a FOLLOWUP from last week's "I heard a kid say a street name stupidly"
Part 4: Technicalities about city limits
Part 5: I was in Albertsons' when I noticed someone put the "Grief" cards into the "Congratulations" section

Does this person actually get paid to write this stuff? I could probably write a better column with material just from just my morning walk around the block with my dog.

I'm a garfield doll and I'm getting a kick out of these replies.
2007-06-08 07:51:01 AM  
Garfield dolls you say?

I'm cool with "gangbangers" killing each other. But you leave Garfield out of this.
/on second thought take Garfield just leave Dilbert alone.

That line made me laugh, since I connected it to Fark's Leading Newsman, Ric "Mustache Ride" Romero.

It's amazing where and what you can hide. Personally, I used to hide my nine in a cabbage patch doll.

Chill out, it's a humor column. It's supposed to be stupid.

Life's losers using kiddie toys to better their chances at incarceration? Me thinks yes.

In unrelated news: Gangbanger found dead in cell. Autopsy revealed handgun hidden in Teletubby which was concealed in colon. Medical examiner states, "the cause of death is unknown".

When they outlaw Garfields, only Outlaws will have Garfields.

Mark my words.
2007-06-08 09:03:15 AM  
minvasive, only too true. this article is as unfunny as garfield has been for about 20+ years. he must have been neutered, just like his owner.

miss the proud of being fat, violent, misogynistic, misanthropic, speciesist garfield.
2007-06-08 09:15:29 AM  
Ahem. They were violin cases, not guitar cases.

I'm not impressed. Now, if he concealed his gun in a REAL cat....
2007-06-08 09:17:04 AM  

... he accidentally dropped his giant plush doll.

"Officers heard a distinct clunk ..."

That may have been one of the cogs in his brain machinery.

b-b-b-b-b-but I thought concealed handguns were illegal in California.

Good thing the average citizen is perfectly safe.

What is the average police response time now, 30 minutes?

b-b-b-b-b-but I thought concealed handguns were illegal in California.

I don't think that this is a good article to be making that argument about, since the guy with the gun got arrested for just having the gun. Now if he held up a store with the Garfield and someone got shot, then maybe you could get some traction, but from this story the law appeared to work as intended.

Heh, heh...he said Romero.

lol, what a great thread
2007-06-08 09:54:27 AM  
I see what you did there subby, and I'll be laughing about it all day.

Oh, and handgun ownership isn't illegal in Kalifornia, but it's painful if you're not extremely well connected to get a permit to carry said handgun.
2007-06-08 09:57:47 AM  
Ahem. They were violin cases, not guitar cases.

I believe subby was talking about this guy:

If you see someone that looks out of place carrying a tennis raquet bag, an AK-47 folder fits in one perfectly.
2007-06-08 10:12:39 AM  

Yeesh. That's farked up.
2007-06-08 10:17:45 AM  
Hmm... let me think... what would be less conspicuous than a guitar case... oh, I see, a life sized Garfield doll... carried by a gangsta. That's about as conspicuous as Paris Hilton buying a Bible (which still boggles my mind).
2007-06-08 10:21:39 AM  
I came here for the Betty Boop pics.
You guys have fallen short.

Looks like Jim finally did it and raped the cat.

Still waiting for someone to post that comic.
