You’ve heard the tales of Romeo and Juliet, Mark Antony and Cleopatra, or Bonnie and Clyde. GoComics is home to another one of history’s most famous couples – Garfield and lasagna. In honor of today’s (July 29) tasty holiday, National Lasagna Day, we are celebrating our favorite tabby cat and the love of his life with a look back at their epic love story.
As far as Garfield is concerned, lasagna is the definition of romance.
A pan layered with cheesy, saucy deliciousness is what dreams are made of (Garfield’s dreams, anyway).
It is irresistible to him; the thought of lasagna in the fridge hails to him like a siren’s call.
His mind is forever consumed by thoughts of this pasta perfection.
Like Romeo and Juliet, the time shared between these star-crossed lovers is short, but meaningful.
Garfield could never get his fill of his favorite culinary treasure.
The thought of losing it is unbearable.
Lasagna is always first in his heart; not even Arlene could come between them.
It’s not the look of this Italian delicacy, but what’s inside that matters; the ooey-gooey goodness that Garfield could love in all forms.
Unlike so many of history’s other famous love stories, this one definitely has a happy ending, for the romance between our lovestruck tabby and his favorite dish will surely last forever (cue the silent, happy tears).
