A classic mistake.
I bet the milk expired a month ago
Puts a new meaning on the phase “got milk?”.
These days I usually drink almond milk. It has a shelf life of several months.
No milk today, my thirst has gone away
The carton stands too near, with a date of the last year
No milk today, we hear a minor sigh
But Jon be passing by don′t know the reason why…
Just call it buttermilk, Garfield and move on!
You still would’ve gotten Garfield if you knew then what you know now.
Back then it wasn’t expired.
I think that every weekend when I listen to Casey Kasem’s American Top 40, one from 1970-9 and the other from 1980-8.
I’m surprised it lasted that long with Garfield reputation…….
One day, during a part-time job I was working, I made myself a peanut butter sandwich as part of my lunch one day. But when my coworkers and I stopped to take our lunch break, I knew as soon as I bit into the sandwich that there was something off about the peanut butter. Once I got home, I checked the jar that I had gotten the peanut butter from, and it turns that it was almost three years past the expiration date (not months, but years). I immediately threw it away after reading that.
I recall a friend of mine who was from the UK who made that mistake with some cream in his coffee. In the UK, as well as many parts of the world, the expiration dates are given as day, month, year, not month, day, year. Thus 9-10 to him read as October 9, not September 10 like those in North America would surmise on that September 30th. As he was pretty hung over, the cream which had begun to curdle put him over the edge and the dude had the pukes for the whole morning. Afterwords, he made an intelligent observation: “Why don’t those ****ng buggers spell out the bloody month on the expiry date so anyone on the bloody planet would know the cream has gone bad!”.
The nose should know.
Why should you care Garfield,you’d eat or drink it anyway???
Seeing the look on Garfield’s face in the first panel!
As Terry Pratchett once noted a better wish, one which would ensure better sleep at night, would be not to know now what you didn’t know then.
If I knew then what I know now I’d pass out from sheer fright.
Kind of odd that Garfield didn’t smell the milk first.
Ooh La La.
Expiration dates: Some people read them, other don’t.
I hope the milk doesn’t come to life.
I can’t help wondering what Jon was thinking of
Yeah, I learned that lesson the hard way. I got a pint of milk at a convenience store and payed the penalty for not checking the date. Now, I double check the dates on everything.
Oh, a cottage cheese pour?
I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then.
It’ll be interesting trying to clean the litter box
No such thing as an “expiration date” on food.On the other hand, I just finished a bottle of buttermilk labeled “Use By Aug 19, 2022”. You just shake it to break up the curd.
It’s giving that one Beetlejuice song
Let’s break into “Ooo la la” by Faces
Now Garfield needs to find a place to discreetly excrete his breakfast.
Well, Garfield, if the milk is past its expiration date, it’ll serve you right if you get sick from it.
If milk tastes a little off while drinking it, mix half and half with the chocolate.
Strange not noticing when pouring? Or, it wasn’t with lumps?
I love how Garfield just refuses to swallow, spit, or anything.
Thanks Jim, I’ve got an old l.a. times b&w strip on my fridge with the same theme but Jon strange face after drinking it, Great…
Expiration dates are a bit arbitrary. If it smells OK and tastes OK, it more than likely OK to drink. I believe the UK has decided to take the expiration dates off milk and go back to the smell method, as so much milk was being wasted.
You will notice some things have Best By dates, as they don’t really go bad, but may not taste as good after those dates.
the smell didn’t warn you? are you THAT OLD?
Corn flakes a mite tangy this morning?
Don’t be such a sour puss, Garfield.
Is this the first time we’ve seen Garfield using tableware? Usually he uses his hands/paws or eats straight from the bowl/dish…
