Halle Berry, Mila Kunis and...Jeremy Duncan?

By The Reliable Source

The early a.m. roundup of today's toons, from birthday wishes to deathwishes...

'ZITS' (KFS)Enlarge Image

ZITS: Tomorrow, our boy Jeremy is "all growed up." Yessir, it's the Duncan dude's sweet sixteenth Friday, and who knows what mature joys await the J-Man. Will he get his driver's license? Will he have his first car-date? And my-oh-my, will Becker show him where to park it?

Congratulations in advance, Jeremy! And we hasten to remind that you share your Aug. 14 with three big-name celebs:
1. The great Gary Larson (ask your cartoon creators who he is).
2. The splendid Halle Berry (ask your Dad who she is, haha -- she's really your mom's age!).
3. The 26-year-old actress Mila Kunis (now HER, I have a feeling who've heard of. If not: ask Pierce!).

Celebrate in style, Duncan Dude -- and may you get that driver's license right out of the gate. (Just don't, um, HIT the proverbial gate.)


'GARFIELD' (UPS)Enlarge Image

GARFIELD: This Riffster feels a strong and sudden urge to start the official Mrs. Feeny Fan Club. Who's with me?

'DILBERT' (UFS)Enlarge Image

DILBERT: Scott Adams like to slip near-suggestive language and subversive ideas slyly by the censors, and he's feverishly inventive. Today, we can only snicker and say in our best "Beavis & Butt-Head" voice: "Heh-heh. You said 'spit.' "

'SPEED BUMP' (Creators)

SPEED BUMP: Dave Coverly wins today's Riffy (melted down, the trophy's almost as valuable as that Reuben, haha) for Best Silently Underplayed Visual Gag. Well-done, Master C.

'MARK TRAIL' (KFS)Enlarge Image

MARK TRAIL: Suddenly with little warning, "Mark Trail -- the man and the strip -- came to a swift and decisive end. (RIP, Master Trail.)

Mila Kunis is also Meg on "Family Guy."

Let's give Mrs. Feeney her own strip and make Garfield an occasional guest star.
