Jon: Quit dawdling, Garfield.
Michelle Karvinen: How dare you speak that way to an Olympic bronze medalist.

The author writes:

I learned that Garfield's Finnish name is Karvinen, so if we have replaced Garfield with President James Garfield and Gustaf with King Gustaf V, it's only fair we do this as well.

Someone may argue that Michelle Karvinen is not a head of state. I say: Give her some time! Who many of the heads of state who read this was head of state already by the age of twenty??

As far as I know, there is one more country in which Garfield isn't called Garfield. Seems this theme still is to be concluded.
