E-mail con artists, Bono, African poverty.
Today's panel leaves us with two equally-disturbing possible interpretations:
- Mallard does not realize these e-mails are from con artists and actually believes he has a solution to African poverty.
- Mallard thinks it is funny to mock African poverty and Bono's attempts to eradicate it. As if that were not enough, he juxtaposes extreme poverty against his inconvenience at having to delete bogus email, as if the two are somehow equivalent in stature.
