Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Lyman in Garfield

    Early on in the Garfield strips, one of Jon's friends comes and stays in their house, with his dog Odie. His name was Lyman.
    For many years now, Jon is alone with Garfield and Odie. I've never seen a story where Lyman leaves, if anyone here has could you tell me why he left and why he didn't take Odie?
    Although it's unlikely, if you know the date it happened tell me, so I could find the strip. :D

    Here's a hint...Garfield has a taste for human flesh. Why else do you think he wolfs down the special lasagne?


    From Wiki:

    Lyman

    First Appearance: August 7, 1978
    Last Appearance: April 24, 1983

    Once was Jon's roommate and Odie's owner. He stopped appearing in the strip after a few years, apparently because he was considered superfluous. Jim Davis explained how the character was created to give Jon someone to be friends with and talk to, but as Garfield’s character evolved and ended up holding the conversations through his thought bubbles, the conversations became more Garfield-Jon oriented. This made Lyman's character unneeded, so even though they don't explain why, he was written out. Jim Davis later gave humorous scenarios of what happened in the Garfield 25th Anniversary Book. One clue indicated "Don’t look in Jon's basement!" This was overly used in the online game "Scary Scavenger hunt" in which, Lyman's Head is found in the oven and under a cloth, he is found in the tub and when you find him, it plays the Psyco music, and his body is chained in the basement.

      Aha, so he practically never left. I suspected as much, thanks.
      I didn't think of trying wikipedia at all!

        God I love the Garfield books so much.

        The film was a bit lame. Why wasn't Odie CGI'd too? That dog looks NOTHING like Odie. Big dissapointment.

        Plus the dog isn't stupid and doesn't get kicked at all.

        Running my rig in a mighty high gear,
        I don't care where I go, so long as it ain't here,
        If something gets in my way, you know I'm gonna ram her,
        Nobody fools around with this gear jammer.

          And Liz liked Jon (which only happens recently in the comic).
          The movie was too much of a kiddie flick. See how Garfield the comic is today in comparison to when it began, multiply that by 5, and you see how kiddy the movie was.
