The Splut Pies are flying pies, which strike Garfield in the face in random issues, making the sound, "SPLUT!" on impact. Spluts are used for shock humor or as a running gag (their first appearance included Garfield checking the calendar to discover that it was "Splut Week"). Even with Splut pies being common in the comic strip, Jon still acts surprised when they happen. Odie seems to be immune to Splut pies.
