US informal —used to say that something is surprising or hard to understand
▪ After losing their first six games, they won the next ten. Go figure.
Student or Learner
I do not understand the last two sentences - "There's me, stag, at the junior prom". "Go figure". What does stag mean in this context? And what about Go figure? Thx :)
*just an assistant teacher
Stag means alone.
In this case "go figure" is used sarcastically. John is a boring guy, so Garfield is actually not surprised that John went to the prom alone.
A stag at the prom is a male student who goes to the dance without a date.
Jon is a geek, you see. He wasn't successful with girls. Garfield's comment means 'no wonder'.
