You’d think a strip that famous would have a least one person that would have caught that.  Unless it’s a big publicity stunt to get people to talk about Garfield again;  if it was.. it worked for a day at least.

Garfield’s creator Jim Davis issued the following damage control statement:

Dear Friends, Fans and Veterans:

In what has to be the worst timing ever, the strip that runs in today’s paper seems to be making a statement about Veterans. It absolutely, positively has nothing to do with this important day of remembrance.

Regarding today’s Garfield comic strip , it was written almost a year ago and I had no idea when writing it that it would appear today — of all days. I do not use a calendar that lists holidays and other notable days so when this strip was put in the queue, I had no idea it would run on Veterans Day. What are the odds? You can bet I’ll have a calendar that lists everything by my side in the future.

My brother Dave served in Vietnam. My son James is a Marine who has had two tours of duty, both in Iraq and Afghanistan. You’d have to go a long way to find someone who was more proud and grateful for what our Veterans have done for all of us.

Please accept my apologies for any offense today’s Garfield may have created. It was unintentional and regrettable.

I still don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibly that it was a secret publicity stunt. I hope not though, because that would be very distasteful.

Pretty cool.

Someone needs to port this over to a touchscreen device like the iPad and let this cat at it. That would be pretty entertaining.

Thankfully this particular cat is de-clawed, paw prints on the screen have got to be annoying though.

The first episode of the Cat Shit One animated series is out, and blog reader Adam S was awesome enough to send it over for me to check out.

Here are my thoughts on it:

  • The animation and physics are incredible… It’s basically like a grownups version of Toy Story, but with animals and guns.
  • The camera angles in the animation are really neat as well, and really add to the viewing experience.
  • Sound effects and music are top notch.
  • One discrepancy I did note, is that the rabbit’s hearing protection is always at the side of their face, not where their ears are… not a big deal though.

The main rabbit character “Packy” has what looks like an m4, but it takes AK mags… a lot of people think that was a mistake, but it’s not. The rifle exists and is made by Knights Armament Company, model: KAC SR-47

Not that much happens in this 20 minute first episode, but I’m sure the story will develop more in the remaining episodes.

Starts off really cute, but…

Do not watch if you don’t like seeing a doe hand a dog a beating:

Word on the street is that that dog had converted an airsoft lower to a M16! :P

Talk about being incredibly protective of that fawn. I think that can serve as a lesson to everyone, that cute animals such as deer are still wild animals no matter how docile they appear at first.
