Strip by: polynera

{Garfield is standing behind Nermal, who is dressed as Mickey Mouse. Around the corner from them is the real Mickey Mouse, with a lawyer behind him. A sign next to Mickey says "Beware of the mouse's lawyer"}
Garfield: Nermal, I want you to show some of my friends how cute you can be

The author writes:

I guess this is my first "real" SRoMG. I had the idea for this when I saw SRoMG #805, and wondered why Nermal was dressed as Mickey. I quickly realized the joke that Jim had missed, since there's a particular group of people who would REALLY hate Nermal dressing as one of their characters.

Garfield mentions lawyers occasionally, but only had one actually appear in the strip once. Luckily for me, this particular lawyer happened to be standing next to a sign, which saved me the trouble of figuring out how to convey that he worked for Disney.
