That damned Starbucks

What's Mallard raving about today?

Starbucks.

Chrysler = cheap. A cup of Starbucks = expensive.

Or at least that's what I presume he's trying to say.

In point of fact, nothing prevents me from taking a tiny amount of money from my home-equity line of credit if I am really craving an Iced Mocha Wussachino.

I sincerely hope this series of, essentially, knock-knock jokes is done.

Don't knock knock-knock jokes!


Ha!

Funnier than today's Mallard which means... I don't know... usually when you say a dime will get a paper, you're joking, saying a dime is too little. Which makes sense here, the $100+K we'd get if we took out a loan would be too little for coffee for all the elementary students in town (They'd get it on the bus, before coming home to mommy and daddy. I'm so evil) AND the middle and high school students.

But I don't get yesterday... 'that and 50 cents' '... will get you the chrysler company' well, duh, 50 cents is too little for a car company, unless he's referring to before Iacocca. (I read his name in Bloom County comic strips ALL THE TIME and didn't know who he was or how to pronounce his last name. I still don't. Coke-a? Cock-a?)

I'm confused.

Mallard is stupid.

Today's Doonesbury, on the other hand, was quite witty and well drawn. I've never loved DB like I love Bloom County, but, next to Mallard, it's a godsend. I like his drawings of Bush, BTW. Has Mallard ever drawn George W. Bush?

(I did just write Bush, but I know he's never drawn plants or what Bush is slang for. *wink wink, nudge, nudge*)

I want some ranting about the Anna Nicole Smith coverage. That would be original and timely. And back to normal... I mean... he hates this guy... he doesn't hate the black liberal woman because he can't, because she's black, and see, I'm not a racist, some of my best friends (my coworkers who talk to me) are black!



Does this happen to anyone else? You enter in the visual verification exactly as you saw it, put in your username and password, and you're told to !Enter the letters as they are shown in the image. Does it mean I mistyped my password or something more sinister?

It happened this time, but that's because it's an image and it didn't load, so I just wrote hahaha in the hope that that was it. It wasn't.

Coke-a. Evidence: in an ode to Iacocca sung by Milquetoast the Cockroach, the surname was rhymed with "Apple pie and Diet Coke-a" and, later, with "Mocha! Polka! Patriotic tapioca!"

Sometimes, but I don't think his eyes were crossed in the drawing.

Happens to me often enough that I recognize the phenomenon, even if I don't know why it happens.
