the instagram account "garfield_daily_comic" adds an extra Garf panel to make the 3-panel comics fit into a square. the extra panel is a dramatically rendered Cool Garf pose with the text "GARFIELD DAILY" added between panels 2 & 3 and it adds some incredible comedic tension to the comics. it's like Garfield Plus Garfield.

i think that garfield_daily_comic's adding this extra garf panel makes the strip fit into the traditional four-act Kishōtenketsu story structure common in classical east Asian literature:
1. introduction
2. development
3. complication (GARFIELD DAILY panel)
4. reconciliation (of 3 with 1 & 2)

@alex I love it, this is the second-best way to enjoy garfield.
