From the Dick Buchanan Files: Happy Birthday, Orlando Busino

October 10th is cartoonist Orlando Busino's birthday! Whether you know him from his gag cartoons for Saturday Evening Post or Reader's Digest or his many comics and cartoons (including "Gus") for Boys' Life magazine or for his Archie Comics work - Orlando is one of a kind. A three-time winner of the National Cartoonists Society's "Magazine Gag Cartoonist of the Year" award, Orlando deserves a round of applause and a big cyber-birthday cake. Here, courtesy of Dick Buchanan's massive file/pile of single panel cartoons, are a dozen great reasons to wish Orlando the happiest of birthdays. Thanks and take it away, Dick!
