Best of the Sunday Funnies: We Pick 'Em

By Michael Cavna


The Sunday morning roundup of 'toons, from beached whales to pantless waterfowl...


FAVE PSEUDO-FACT DU JOUR: "PICKLES" gets some swell comic mileage out of the ol' myth that a Pantless Donald Duck is -- as Popeye might pun -- "wrong to the Finnish." (Sorry, I know. It's early yet.) Of course, it's only a false myth, an old duck's tale that takes hold because it's so fun to believe. But just think about it: They would ban a bottomless Donald, but they'd allow a bottomless Daisy Duck? (Wait, don't answer that.) Anyway, the whole furry anecdote is worth reading about HERE.

FAVE GAG: Who knew that all that Starbucks-produced music that pipes through the store's speakers might as well as be the whale-song that lures leviathans? Thanks, Pastis,for this "PEARLS BEFORE SWINE."

FAVE THREE-MINUTE READ: This "DOONESBURY" is well worth the time it takes to dwell on each panel.
.
FAVE UNCOMFORTABLE GAG: This "PRICKLY CITY" strikes a little too close to home. And while we're talkin' "Prickly," my version of the comic, at least, has no syndication "stamp" -- speaking possibly to the strip's recent limbo. Effective today, United Feature Syndicate says, it'll distribute Scott Stantis's strip, which was launched by Universal Press Syndicate.

Are there Sunday funnies you love or loathe today? If so, you're invited to share them links.

Well Fuzzy sucked me right in with it's subtle word play. Right up to the last panel where he hits you broadside. Didn't see that one coming ;)
