Strip by: GravityEmblem

{Jon hands Garfield a bowl of food}
Jon: Here's your dinner, Garfield
{Jon smiles evilly}
{Garfield inspects the box of Cat Food}
Box: Ingredient: Cyanide
Garfield {shoveling food into his mouth}: I suspected as much
{Garfield's gravestone}

The author writes:

I love how the title implies Garfield was murdered for political reasons. Perhaps Jon believed he was owed an Ambassadorship to France. (Although that makes you wonder who's Chester A. Arthur in this scenario.)
