The creator of the famous "Garfield" comic, Jim Davis, has issued an apology for a strip that ran on Veterans Day, the Washington Post reported.
The strip depicts a spider's thoughts as Garfield is about to crush it with a rolled-up newspaper, "If you squish me, I shall become famous!" read the thought bubble.
"They will hold an annual day of remembrance in my honor, you fat slob," the spider continues.
The last square shows the spider at a teacher's desk, as he addressed a group of spiders: "Does anyone here know why we celebrate 'National Stupid Day?'"
The cartoonist said the strip was created almost a year ago, CNN reported
"I had no idea when writing it that it would appear today - of all days," Davis said.
