"Cousin Garfield Didn't Mean Anything By It!"

Cartoonist Jim Davis has apologized to the Veterans Administration and to all American veterans as his "Garfield" cartoon came out on Veterans Day showing a conversation between Garfield and a spider.

Garfield is just ready to stomp the spider with his big foot when the spider tells him that if he squashes him, he will be honored on a day in the future.

Then it showed a spider-teacher at school with all the student-spiders telling them all about "National Stupid Day".

Davis stated that he didn't know that the Garfield cartoon would come out on Veteran's Day.

"I do the cartoons a long time before they are published", he stated.

However, even though a rep from the VA accepted the apology, many are wondering exactly WHO did choose Veteran's Day for the cartoon to come out.

A tempest in a teapot it seems but one can't help wondering what the outcome would have been had the spiders wore turbans and veils.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
