I've Never Been A Fan Of Garfield - Here's Another Reason Why
Out of all the comic strips from years gone past, one of my least favourites has always been Garfield. I don't know why, it just is. Maybe it's because there was a point in time in the 80's he was everywhere.. lunch boxes, cartoons, tons of merchandise, and phones. So many phones in fact entire shipping containers were used to ship them.
It seems one of those shipping containers shipwrecked in the 80's and caused parts of Garfield phones to wash ashore in France.
Mystery solved, but not the problem, as reported in the Washington Post.
