Tax news & I haven't laughed this hard at Garfield since I was 9

Wander over to Growth in Value if you'd like to read some of my comments about the new TFSA - tax-free savings accounts - which Canadians get to play with starting next January.

I have something much more urgent to share with you.

A story from my childhood.

As a young boy, I found that some of my snooty friends in elementary school called Garfield juvenile and not as funny as the Far Side and other more 'sophisticated' cartoons. And, as much as I hated to admit it, they were right. The older you get, the less amusing the orange fat cat got.

This all changed when Penny Arcade shared "Garfield without Garfield".

"Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb. "

Check it gems like "There's something wrong with my pants" now, thank me later.


Above - not Garfield.

This one is more poetic and melancholy than anything ever done in the originals.

It's amazing what a small tweak like "deleting the cat" can accomplish.

Check it out before the lawyers jump all over it.
