Those damned Oscars

What's Mallard raving about today?

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the Oscars.

There are so many things about this panel that make it utterly detestable. Like the fact that Mallard still proudly counts himself among the flat-earthers who reject climate change. Like the unnecessary commas in the title of the documentary. Like the utter illogic of this flimsy stretch of a premise.

But, what really stands out most is the grotesque caricature of god knows who. I know some readers will focus on the, as always, closed eyes. But I'd like to ask why it is that Mallard thinks an elongated chin is a necessary component of a caricature?

i think it's george clooney, another of the leftist-hollywood-jewish conspirisy to control the world through science and diversity

as for the chin, maybve he thinks
jay leno=funny
jay leno=big chin
therefore:
big chin=funny



even though leno is god awful

Has Tinsley ever had occasion to draw Jay Leno? I shudder to think what he would do with HIS chin...

erich-
maybe he'd draw a normal chin...and then kill himself for being the worst comic "writer/drawer" ever

or so goes the dream

For once it's an acurate portrayal: That caricature is none other than the reknowned British actor, Sir Richard Penischin III.

I think he looked up "caricature" on Google, got Gerald Scarfe, and decided to copy him (substituting elongated noses for elongated chins so it doesn't look like he's ripping him off).
