Tell me what you think of my new poem, Garfield. "MY BUDDY" I have a buddy. My buddy's a toad. He's kind of muddy, he's flat on the road. But, he is my buddy, my buddy to stay, 'til he's peeled up and sailed away. Garfield?

You're going to have to exercise that belly off, Garfield. Tell you what. I'll get a leash and take you for a brisk morning drag. If he had a brain, I'd say he was trying to make a funny.
