Strip by: Destructible Watermelon

Garfield: Today is Thursday and that's new comic day
Jon: Here's your "Garfield gets no lasagna and gets mad" strip
{Jon hands Garfield a shrunken version of the original of this strip}
{Garfield splats a shrunken version of the 1978-07-20 strip into Jon's face}
Garfield: Let me jog your memory
{The "all rights reserved" note at the bottom has been changed to "all comics recycled eventually"}

The author writes:

Two things.

Firstly, the way Garfield says it is new comic day seems to state that other days are "reruns" and makes Jon's failure to deliver a good comic all the more awful.

Secondly, it's almost as if Jim actually wanted this to happen, having a recycle of an old strip with the punchline, "let me jog your memory".
