** One common joke is to take something from the original strip and invert it: for example, [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=2751 Jogging]] edits [[http://images.ucomics.com/comics/ga/2016/ga160707.gif this Garfield strip]] so that Garfield is jogging and he takes a break from that by sleeping, instead of the other way around.
** Another running gag is taking a strip and making an OverlyLongGag out of one or more of the panels from it, such as in [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=2705 Slow Jog]] (an edit of [[http://images.ucomics.com/comics/ga/2016/ga160725.gif this]] strip), where Garfield runs around the block for a very large number of panels.

-->...but apparently the original comic confused some people when it came out. One thing led to another, and now I rule the state of Montana. Which is kind of strange because I don't actually live in Montana.
