Strip by: Craig Wittler

Jon: You know Garfield...
Jon: I've made a few mistakes in my aardvark.
{Aardvark from Ant and the Aardvark cartoon appears in Garfield's place}
Jon: I mean "life".
Aardvark: Nooooo...

The author writes:

When I hear "aardvark" I think of that blue meanie from The Ant and the Aardvark, a series of cartoons made to be "B" features on the Saturday Morning Pink Panther Show. Interesting sideline: the voices of the characters were intended specifically as celebrity impersonations... the ant as Dean Martin and the aardvark as comedian and Rat Pack member Joey Bishop.
