Those damned gas stations

What's Mallard raving about today?

Cows, fuel.

Credit where it is due, you can at least identify an attempt at humor here. That said, after yesterday stooping lower than a cow's sense of decency, Mallard finds a new low water mark.

That and no Evil Sun. Come on!

How are those people supposed to get out of there car to, ahem, "fill it" when there's no doors?

Kaitlyn said...

I'm glad his cars don't have doors, frankly, if you can't get in, you can't drive drunk.

His strip is literally turning into bullshit!

I love it.

Though any joke that may be found is a fluke - look, it's not filed with strawmen, just a dead horse(cow) of an idea that he's beating with his beer bottle.

Kaitlyn said...

filled with strawmen, not filed...

Would he have a filing system, or is that just a feature used by sarcastic bloggers?

I don't get why there's a warthog standing next to the car. And where's the cow??

Kaitlyn said...

That is a cow, to Tinshley.

I can just imagine a young Brucie in kindegarten. He drew a cow and the teacher told him it looked like a monstrous warthog, "cows are not evil, nor are they tools of the devil, Bruce."

That led to his life long hate of teachers, which opened up the conservative mindset to him, because teachers=bad, and most teachers are liberals and are government employees, therefore, government is also bad. (Except for Reagan.)

So sad. She killed a little boy's potential to have intelligent, non-partisan thoughts and engage in real political discourse and consider opposing viewpoints as valid.

I agree that any actual humor found in today's script is purely coincidental. What we have here, primarily, is the ridiculing of the alternative energy crowd. Much easier to draw a cow/warthog hybrid than actually consider that America's dependence on foreign fuel is a dead end.

If only we could harness the hot air coming out of Turdsely, we'd have a renewable energy source that would make us the envy of the world.

Yes, if alternative fuels are adopted, we'll have to scoop manure directly from the animal into our fuel tank. Just like we currently have to handle unrefined crude oil with our bare hands every time we fill up.
