Strip by: Billy Hicks

{Garfield is hanging onto a half-table, half-Dusty Springfield hybrid}
Garfield: This table is Dusty.
{Garfield sneezes off the table}
Garfield: ACHOO!
{Garfield is lying on the floor, with a still-smiling Dusty Springfield looking at him}
Garfield: What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

The author writes:

Dusty Springfield (1939-1999) was a hugely successful and respected British popstar of the 20th century. Most of my submissions tend to end with the word "field" so I thought this seemed the logical continuation.

In the final panel, Garfield is singing the lyrics to her famous collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys.

Original strip: 1980-11-29.
