Wow, that Jim Davis has some pretty controversial opinions!

David Hogg sends in this bit of silliness.

All I can say is, I remember when Garfield was edgy. That fat cat who was obnoxious and not cute at all . . . What happened?? The comic strip became too cuddly so he had to express his aggression in other ways?

P.S. Yeah, I know, this belongs on the sister blog. But I’ve pledged to keep that one all-statistics for 30 days.

    Are you confusing Jim Davis with Scott Adams? The article is about Adams, the creator of Dilbert, not Davis.

    PRT: Yes, I realize it was Adams (see here for more background). I just thought it was amusing to intentionally confuse him with the Garfield guy. Although I suppose that explaining the joke ruins it…

    You should read other posts on his blog for some context here – he puts out unusual ideas and has people vote yay or nay.

    I think I’ll vote nay on this one, then!
