Those damned kids

What's Mallard raving about today?

Video games, kids, hooligans.

In my attempt to ignore today's cutting edge humor (oh boy, kids today...are they ever better than grown-ups at the video games!), I unfortunately came face-to-face with the realization that Mallard may have procreated.

The absurdity of the fact that a duck sired a vaguely ethic child does not in any way ameliorate my feelings of nausea.

Don't pedophiles use video games and stuff to lure neighborhood kids into their homes?

Don't pehophiles usually have drug or alcohol problems?

Notice how a lot of pedophiles in the news lately tend to be white guys who appear to be strict conservative "family-values" types on the surface?

Uhhh...Mallard...So who's the kid?

Actually, I believe it's the kid in this brief sequence:

Whom I think is the son of this guy:

Neither of whom appear that much because they are not easily-lit strawmen.

Note: while trying to find images of those two obscure characters, I came across this one:

Furthermore, someone needs to tell Bruce that "Mario!" and "Link!" are video game characters, not sound effects.

Is that one of those 'LIBERAL' self-esteem hotlines for un-manly non-conservatives!?! SONIC! LUIGI!

The kid is Rush. He's the son of Mallard's friend Dave, who owns the diner Mallard always goes to.

He rarely appears in the strip now, though.

Ugh. How embarrassing to have known that. Dave and Rush are alleged to be Vietnamese (to show that he's NOT RACIST, presumably), although Tinsley's artistic ineptness makes that less than obvious.

The only helpline that I know of is suicide helplines, I called one last fall when my antidepressant made my emotions crazy.

If he's mocking that...

Nah, just the idea of self-esteem's importance, something only liberals believe.

Please let that be the 'joke'.
