I'm taking some inspiration from D.J. Coffman and Yirmumah to declare this Saturday International Burt Reynolds Day and urge everyone worldwide to include a cameo of Burt Reynolds (mustache or no mustache) in your webcomic (or on your webcomic website) this Saturday.
Do it for Burt! Do it for webcomics!
If you do it, let me know ahead of time or afterwards by replying here or emailing me and I'll post a list on the site for people to check 'em out.

Chris Muir in his political webcomic Day By Day criticizes the Coretta Scott King funeral and the political blog Pandagon responds. I thought this was interesting for two reasons: one, blogs "talk" to each other all the time (expecially political blogs) taking each other on through posts, but this is the first time I've seen a webcomic directly included in that process (I'm sure it's not the actual first time it's happened of course) and second, Pandagon essentially "remixed" the webcomic to make it's point (and encouraged its readers to do so in the comments). I wonder how Muir, or any politically-minded cartoonist, reacts to that sort of reuse?
