{Garfield is wearing a St. John's College, Cambridge scarf}
HM the Queen: Garfield, we're going to the park.
Garfield: Whoopee.
HM the Queen: You know the rules. No flower stomping...
HM the Queen: And...
Garfield: Compulsory swan maiming.

The author writes:

"When the Queen came to visit for our 500th anniversary, as part of this she had dinner with the Fellows of St. John's College. So you've got this room filled with the only people in the country who are allowed to eat swan... and they don't eat any swan!

That just seems like rubbing it in."

- H.
