Strip by: DanielBT

Mailman: Stand aside, cat. I know karate!
{Garfield fights the mailman}
{Garfield chases the mailman}
{Garfield corners the mailman}
Garfield: Ha! Ha!
{Garfield slams the mailman on the ground repeatedly}
SFX: Wham! Wham! Wham!
{The mailman lies unmoving on the ground}
Garfield: I wonder if killing a mailman is a federal offense.

The author writes:

You can literally see the mailman growing older throughout the panels. He goes from a Lyman clone to looking like Dr. Wily. It's tempting to think that he started creating robots to take over the world because he was harassed by a cat while trying to earn money to fund his research.
