I took a break from the hoovering to have a bit of lunch today and sit down to watch the news and I was watching Sky News and they were interviewing the political editor of the News Of The World about Gordon's most recent travails.

This is rather wonderful. Someone has hit on the idea of taking Garfield strips and removing Garfield and his speech bubbles, just leaving Jon talking to himself. I hadn't heard about it before I saw this article, but it's a brilliant idea and it really works. It's kind of like the cutup technique that Burroughs and Bowie use. There's a real depth of despair revealed here. And apparently Jim Davis likes it so much that he's got behind a new book which will reprint his original strips alongside the doctored ones. Brilliant.
