Those damned cans

What's Mallard raving about today?

Instant mashed potatoes, cylindrical containers.

Hmmmm, is it just me or does that can of mashed potatoes look like something other than a can of mashed potatoes? Something a lot less powdery, for instance...

I can't believe we have at least another solid week left of this topic. When these panels were being written, wasn't there a liberal somewhere doing something worth commenting on?

So what seems to have happened is this: Tinshley got _so_ wasted just before going for a little drive that he spent several days gunned to the tits, rooting through the rancid Thanksgiving leftovers behind the Schlitz in his fridge, and saying "hey! Mashed potatoes! I can draw _these_ badly, too! There's another strip done. Where'd I leave that bottle of Jack Daniels?"

I wait with my heart in my throat for his commentary on yams.

I'd also like to note that, in a certain amount of serendipity, the Word Verification string for this post includes the character sequence "BOOZ".

How does this relate to the holidays?

I thought he meant food that only popped up this time of year, not a staple of everyday life.

Granted, he's so right, the mashed potatoes from a can suck.

Why would anyone buy the damn stuff if they're just going to throw it in the garabage?

Garbage. Whatever.

On the plus side, we DID learn what that the puffy white stuff in front of Mallard is ...
