When I started this blog, I didn’t expect it to ever get this many followers, especially this fast! There is quite a few people I would like to thank for this. I would like to, of course thank anyone and everyone who has ever liked my posts, reblogged my posts (especially the namesake explained posts, I work really hard on those) or followed me. Special thanks to @ihatejonarbuckle for being one of the main reasons why my posts ever get traction in the first place!

But I cant be a Garfield Blog without making the neccesary thanks to the strip and franchise, so here we go! I’d like to thank Garfield of course for being such a fat, lazy cat. I’d like to thank Odie for doing Odie things. I’d like to thank Jim Davis for creating all of human life in 6 days (he rested on a Monday). I’d like to extend appreciation towards the ridicule of Jon Arbuckle (thanks is too strong a word to exist in a sentence with Jon Arbuckle). I’d like to shame Liz Wilson for going out with Jon Arbucke, but also thank her for being a generally decent human being. I’d like to thank Pookie for always being there for Garfield, like I wish I could. I’d like to thank Nermal for being the most vain and annoying character. Id like to extend my sympathies towards Lymans family for he has yet to be found after so many years. I’d like to thank Arlene for being Garfields… What is she to Garfield, is it love interest, are they just friends, idk. I’d like to thank Vitos pizzeria for keeping Garfield stocked with Italian meals and confectionaries. I’d like to thank lasagna, just lasagna, for being Lasagna. I’d like to thank Hercules, the Mexican Chihuahua debuting in episode 3 from the Garfield Show (2011) for being a blatant stereotype. A Curveball thanks go to the Air Bud franchise for being painfully mediocre movies with lots of early 2000s B movie charm and massive ironic appeal. Avoid Air Buddies like the plague though. I’d like to thank the grandmother model and the low poly fish model from the Garfield Show. I’d like to thank everyone who showed up to the Garfield Show stream. I’d like to thank you, if you made it this far and were genuinely reading all of this tripe. I’d like to thank Wikipedia for having a page listing all of the relevant and not so relevant Garfield characters so I can waste my life thanking half of them individually for an internet joke. And last but not least I’d like to thank Doc Boy for…. I genuinely don’t have a stance on Doc Boy, I mean he’s related and makes fun of Jon Arbuckle, but Jon makes fun of him by calling him Doc Boy instead of Doc. Is he just defending himself against the tyrannies of Jon Arbuckle or does he carry the same evil blood? A question for the ages…

Also like, thanks to my family and friends I guess? they’re important…

Anywho, thanks all, I’ll be sure to continue taking internet jokes about obese felines way too far!
