Those damned Professors

What's Mallard raving about today?

Straw men, NASA, the Sun, Hollywood Celebrities.

Speaking of things for which there is no evidence, let's mention Straw Professor who we are supposed to believe is a Climatologist or Meteorologist swayed by Hollywood celebrity rather than scientific evidence. As if the vast majority of scientists on the globe are under the sway of Hollywood and ignoring the reams of scientific evidence that Mallard and Newsmax alone seem privy to or able to correctly interpret.

Plus, no angry sun.

When did NASA become his source?

My second cousin's wife works for NASA (the 2002 Mars rover was her baby) and they totally live near LA.

Since they're childless and work in mind-boggling rich fields, I assumed that's where the money came from.

But now I know the truth.

*calls Earl*
"Happy easter! Stop spreading the rumor about global warming! It was 62 degrees today as the high!"

Because a tornadic system moved through last night while I was asleep (my sister got bonked on the head by hail, wish I'd been awake!) and dropped the temperatures and soaked everything. And no tornadoes hit us, not that I would have noticed. How can I sleep through a thunderstorm with hail and my sister wakes up if I open her door?

Global warming and gay marriage.

Hey, when will Mallard start attack teh gays? That will be fun, because it'll be new.

And you're right daveyk, pluggers is sucking my soul out. (I already looked at it every day, thanks to josh at the comics curdmudgeon. grr)

Back to the comic, nice to see the Jew/Liberal again, instead of the sun. When we were driving on the parkway above the trees, if I squinted and looked at just the right angle, I could see the white disk that is the sun, not just the blaring golden light.

I miss the evil sun.

And now he's attacking penguins.

Happy Feet ruled, penguins are cute, and Opus could kick his comic strip ass any day of the week as long as it's sunday. Grr.

Kaitlyn said...

No eyes, either. I bet the evil sun burned them out.

And if the sun's heating up, causing global warming, doesn't mean a new ice age because they get hotter before they die? (stars, not movie stars, the glowy things.)

And it was around sunset that I saw the sun as a disc, before I took any pain meds.

And my cousin's wife is prettier than anyone in Mallard's comic and her name is Nagin, but not at all pronounced the same.

And Mallard's suffergin from bird envy - he wants to be a penguin. We don't care about ducks, we only make way for ducklings.

I'm rather flattered that Mallard believes we scientists get out enough to even know who these hollywood celebrities even are

Apparently when Tinsley says "the evidence from NASA," he's referring to this line from the NewsMax article:

Data from NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey mission in 2005 disclosed that the carbon dioxide "ice caps” near Mars’ south pole had been shrinking for three consecutive summers.

(link: )

This, of course, does not in any way address Tinsley's "evil sun" theory.

Honestly, I have no idea whether Tinsley is deliberately lying or if he's just too dumb to understand his own argument.

This has been my favorite week of MF ever. The Evil Sun Theory of Global Warming is the funniest thing I've come across in a long time.

Kaitlyn said...

Bad, bad sun!

Andy, what about cow farts?
