When looking at unstattedCommoner's and then Lunatic Person's submission, I noticed that a lot of the absurd humour that was seen in the original comic had been substituted for accuracy. Continuing this trend, I noted that contemporary taxonomists are more likely to consider the archaeopteryx a "non-avialan dinosaur". If it cannot be considered a bird, then Garfield is either lying or misinformed by referring to the archaeopteryx as a bird he's eaten in his time. Thus, this comic is updated for accuracy by categorising by phylum, rather than class.
And now it's perfectly accurate and unfunny.
