The author writes:

I saw the original Garfield strip in a newspaper when I was 9, and it somehow jumped to the front of my mind when I saw the dril tweet a decade later.

In the original strip Garfield was saying "How'd you know what I wanted?" in the last panel. I was seriously considering leaving that in. In the end I took it out, leaving a surreal hands-in-air gesture that my GIMP skills are not strong enough to remove.

Original strip: 2009-12-15.
