The author writes:

I suggest you don't look at the artwork in this one too closely. For the joke to work, I had to erase both Garfield's line in the last panel, and his outstretched arm. I ran into problems when I realized there was no easy way for me to erase his arm without making the black dots background pattern present in most of the strips look weird. Thus I decided to erase the background itself. Then I realized that made the other panels look weird, so I erased it from those panels too... but then I had motion lines to deal with. And I only have MS Paint. Anyway, if you look at the art (which I recommend you don't), you'll notice my amateurish image manipulation pretty easily.
