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.
