Strip by: Bobby "TenPoundHammer" Peacock

Wilford Brimley {likeness hapazardly created by editing Jon}: It isn't healthy for a cat to be as big as you are, Garfield
Wilford: Why, you could get heart disease, get fallen arches...
Wilford: Get diabeetus
Garfield: Couldn't resist it could you

The author writes:

I was always fascinated by Wilford Brimley's commercials for Liberty Medical. Younger me thought that he seemed kinda pissed-off when he told you to get your "diabeetus" testing supplies. I still pronounce it that way, too. No offense meant to anyone who is diabetic.

Original strip: 1981-07-17.
