Garfield: Shoo-doop boowa, shoo-doop boowa...
Garfield: Ground control to Major Tom, your circuit's dead. There's something wrong. Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom? Can you hear me, Major Tom?
{Garfield hits record player}
SFX: KA-CHUNK
Turntable: Can you
Garfield: Heeeeeere I am...
{Jon is not amused}

The author writes:

The author of SRoMG #3649 had his apprehensions about using "Space Oddity" for this particular gag, likely given Bowie's recent* passing. I have no such apprehensions. So here you go – doing proper justice to a rock/pop music idol.
