Garfield Minus Garfield

Have you ever seen Garfield Minus Garfield? It's a brilliant website that addresses a question many of us have asked over the years: do you know how stupid you look talking to your cat?

Yes, this site reproduces Garfield strips with the cat digitally erased from action, leaving resident human Jon Arbuckle, well, talking to himself. But isn't that what you do when you talk to a cat?

It got so big that a book was published with creator Jim Davis' blessing. It's fun to look at, but it ruins the premise by publishing both the "Garfield minus Garfield" strip and its unaltered original on every page, thus robbing the "minus" strips of their existential oomph.
