Comment: Here is one that is sure to be a hoax. I think it originated with
a satirical article that Fark.com put up, and some bloggers are taking
seriously. It is that supposedly Jack Chick (the one with the tracts many
people hate with a passion) has bought out the rights to several comic
strips. One of these is Garfield, and it gives a supposed altered strip.

If that is true, the so-called altered strip would probably be more interesting than any of the Garfield strips ever created since 1995.

Okay, just to make it clear, there is a real world out there. No really, there is. I checked.

And here it is!

Lark News appears to be like "The Onion" with a Christian slant. Funny.

Yeah, that's definitely a hoax. For one thing, the "Garfield" strip doesn't use the Jim Davis font, it just uses Comic Sans.
