A Very Garies Christmas

A Very Garies Christmas

Thu, 10/28/2010 - 21:41 by Ananth in response to garies proverbs

So we try to keep these Garies comics to a minimum because they are maybe a little too inside jokey, not to mention vague, weird, and creepy - but it's Halloween and that suits the holiday just fine. Today is Garies Proverbs - there will possibly be one more Garies comic on Tuesday, but that may change. 

We may or may not be at a certain event in DC this coming Saturday. 

George is visiting us for a little while! You'll remember him from some past comics. He got to NYC and he's already got a quest. 

There are a few Beach Sets left in the store, and then they're gone forever! 

Everyone - have a rad Halloween!

Wow I can believe I'm finally leaving a comment here. First, you guys rock, I love your comic, I have been reading it from a looong time, I deeply admire your drawings and techinques Yuko!

I'm from Argentina, and I'm a HUGE fan. I always find laughter and inspiration here!!!

Just wanted to write today because of this Garies thing...You know a while ago I was reading a blog I think where this t shirt appeared...and the comment suggested it was a made in China "Garfield t-shirt" gone wrong. I have been searching for that image again but no luck...is this right? This is so funny no matter what, but I'm still puzzled about this!

Thank you guys for all the happy moments I spend reading JW. Los quiero!!!

Hi

First off, long time fan from Austria. I just love your stories, so heartwarming. And Gonta... hahaha.

Now, about this Mr. Garies. I have never met this elusive gentleman nor does he want his existence achknowledged by Mr. google. So I'm at a loss. Help >.<

Best wishes to all, looking forward to the next one :-)

Garies-

Comment by William A. Righetti (not verified) Sat, 10/30/2010 - 10:14

Honestly, I have no idea where this Garies fellow came from aside from his debut a few comics back, but this one was hilarious. I think you folks may have created a new meme by accident or something. Anyway, I had a good chuckle over this one for about five minutes. Fantastic, and creepy, especially those hilarious eye close ups in the last comic and below it in the news section.

Oh and since folks are adding their own quotes to the party; "Too many cooks spoil the Garies." :-p

Here it is

Also there is apparently a book titled "The Garies and Their Friends," I'm assuming about plural Gary.

Origins

Comment by Nate (not verified) Sat, 10/30/2010 - 22:20

Unless Garies is a specific reference or product of/from something, I wonder if perhaps it was a custom uniform for some short-lived shop or storefront? Seems very backwoods icecream stand to me, based on the photo.

from 'The Mayonnaise Chapter.'

Look it up. I think we've got another "TFIA" going on here. No one knows what it means or where it came from, but it becomes something that everyone knows about.

(thanks to my 11th grade English teacher for that one) =)

Double Garies.... what does it mean???

Comment by Brad S (not verified) Tue, 11/02/2010 - 11:35

According to google and wikipedia, Garies is a small agricultural center in south africa and google images just shows a bunch of pictures of dirt and rocks. Maybe we aren't supposed to know what Garies is. Knowing may just ruin the mystique!

So, I looked at this at work and had to hold in the urge to laugh hysterically... I don't know why, but good old Garies makes me laugh so hard. I think it's the creepy, souless stare?

Sell this shirt to us.

Comment by Clause (not verified) Thu, 11/11/2010 - 14:56

Ahhhh. We did this fill-in-the-blank assignment at school today, and I couldn't help but fill all of the blanks in with "GARIES" in my head. It was extremely difficult as well as hilarious...

I actually had a dream that was entirely Garies.

On Proverbs (And Other Ridiculous Things)

Comment by Eljacko (not verified) Wed, 12/01/2010 - 17:16

If I remember correctly, there was a comic on Questionable Content about replacing random words in a proverb with "lion". For example: Don't count your lions before they hatch. Don't look a gift lion in the mouth. A lion in the hand is worth two in the bush. All sorts of things that make very little sense and are frightening to picture.

I guess it's a somewhat round-about way of saying it, but what I am trying to get across here is that I am absolutely terrified of lions. And bushes, apparently.

Great comic.
