That damned book

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Sixties generation, self-absorption.

I hate to break it to you, Mallard, but the fact that the Sixties generation straw man is not paying attention to you has nothing to do with self-absorption.

You're boring and most of us have stopped paying attention by now.

Also, generally, information about the author is usually on the BACK of the book, not the front, as shown in the cartoon.
Bruce Tinsley would know this little detail had he actually ever read a book at any time in his life.

Hey, it could be possible the book is in Japanese format :)

Replace "sixties generation" with "conservatives" or "the greatest generation" or "African-Americans" and it still makes just as much sense.

That is, it's sort of a truism --- people are interested in people of their own generation, their own values, their own culture --- but really, so what?
