Garfield creator Jim Davis says a 1990 comic strip has been widely misunderstood, and that it does not show Garfield's owner, Jon Arbuckle, drinking a cup of dog semen.
The infamous comic has long befuddled fans.
That Jon drinks dog semen has become an article of faith among many Garfield fans.
A 2006 Straight Dope message board discussion about the comic "where Jon drinks dog semen" suggests it has been an obsession among some fans for quite a long time.
There have always been doubters, but it's never been clear what Davis's punchline really meant.
