Did Jon Really Drink Dog Semen In This 1990 "Garfield" Comic? Jim Davis Says No.

The "dog semen" comic has been talked about for decades.

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.

This week, Twitter user @realnutsling tweeted photos of a signed copy of the comic, with Davis seemingly sanctioning the dog semen interpretation.

But Davis says people have it all wrong.
