When I first saw reports–I think on Reuters–that the DDOS attack that brought Twitter down and Facebook to a crawl on Thursday was directed at knocking one blogger in Georgia (country, not state) off line, I was somewhat skeptical.

UClick Has Garfield minus Garfield App for iPhone

Here may be another Application that could be downloaded, then collect dust. It’s an Application to get the popular cult comic: “Garfield Minus Garfield”. It’s a comic where Dan Walsh removed Garfield from all the comic strips. Therefore we see Jon pretty much talking to himself.

Jon will now mostly be standing by himself saying things that are even more funny when there is not a cat nearby. Uclick provides humor, comic strips, manga, graphic novels, editorial cartoons, and other...
