Happy Birthday to Karina (aka Fatimajo)! Here’s hoping your birthday involves cake, alcohol, and/or alcohol-infused cake! This is my fifth year of celebrating Karina’s birthday – here are her other b-day toons: 1 – 2 – 3 – 4
Additional birthday greetings go out to: Diana, Mike, Shawna, Noa, Luv2Fli2, Vanessa, and AndyinSDCA!

But, the cake is a lie? isn’t it?
This particular comic has a lot in common with those found at Indexed (http://thisisindexed.com/). Were you inspired by them, or just similar motivation?
Nice to see Timmy hitting the sauce! Porn, smoking, womanizing, marketing and drink. Timmy sure has everything covered!
Thank you, Doug! What a wonderful surprise this morning!! WOOWHO! Party On good people!
Just reviewed the previous b-day posts… all great! Keep it up Doug!
The lines probably cross at the point where birthdays start becoming a lot less fun.
No post to Facebook option? Bummer!
I would have been expecting a mini-Timmy in the top panel, with all his proclivities you’d think he’d have some progeny running around.
Ah, but champagne and cake is SO GOOD together.
The need for cake never goes down!
This also reminded me of the Indexed comics.
I find this especially interesting when you extend the graph into 80’s and beyond. It seems the alcohol drops and cakes rise in importance. Witness the 100th birthday celebrations you’ve seen on TV. They have huge cakes and tiny glasses of booze, if there’s alcohol at all. It’s as if we go full circle as we age, back to cake and diapers.
happy birthday, karina!
and there always has to be cake served on a birthday. otherwise it’s like christmas without a tree.
Happy birthday Karina!
(Steve: you are a geek after my own heart 🙂 )
Awww thanks! 😀
WOW… Thank You So Much!!!
Um… you forgot PRESENTS, which would start off high and move (only slightly) higher over time.
Happy Birthday, All! btw, mine is 11/14, just in case.
Dein Geburtstag! Mine came and went in January…SIGH…\:-/
No matter how much you eat, your stomach always magically has room for (more) cake.
haha this is so true its sad 😀 happy B-day Karina!!! p.s. Doug – November 22nd 😉
Yay, a birthday cartoon on my birthday 😀
… should I be worried that I really want to find the equation for both of these lines? O_O
Doug you are the best. And FYI I am celebrating for three days this year. I however have followed the chart and am suffering today.
Giraffe, I think I’m ahead of you–looks like the nexus between alcohol and cake is approximately 13 hash marks–2 years per, judging by when the alcohol line starts…they cross at age 24? was a long time ago for me.
I personally consider a “bad” birthday one where I get cake instead of alcohol. And when someone hits my car…and the hospital is not BYOB. I hate hospitals.
hey, thanks doug!!! my sentiments exactly. i was in a workshop yesterday with photojournlists here in the Philippines and there was an overflow of beer, hard drinks and good conversation. stayed up till august 31st morning. bestest birthday so far! your cartoon greeting is definitely a BIG SINFULLY DELICIOUS dollop of icing on the missing cake!
Happy belated birthday, Karina! 🙂
I really need to figure out this alcohol infused cake idea.
ANd thank you Ivucica.
I have to split my vote between the birthday/cake/alcohol graph and worf 😉
