This comic would like to say a few words: "Last year with only 11 days left I swept in and won the funniest. My fellow Garfield holiday strip was knocked out by one of the competitors, Pearls, and Pearls faced Zits both strips were very funny and one will win a trophy, present next year's, and become a comic strip character legend. Either one will be a legend that's not as great as the winner but may be one day. Snoopy, Garfield, Beetle Bailey, and Blondie are legend already. Who will join them? Jeremy or Pig? Pastis or Bergman? Happy Box or Clown Head? Pearls Before Swine or Zits?"
"The winner of the funniest comic strip of 2009 is...Zits! A major upset over Pearls sends Pig, Rat, and Goat hoping to win in 2010 and become legendary and the Zits cast into a frenzy! Jeremy fell to his knees as Pierce, Mom, Dad, and weird Girlfriend surrounded him. Whoever thought Zits would be the winner? Congratulations Zits!"
