Those damned pears

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Network, Elitists, Pears.

You see how including that one little word, elitist, changes the entire panel?

Otherwise this would be a diatribe about just how stupid American are; those average Americans Mallard claims to champion. By including that one little word suddenly it's all the networks fault.

No, it just makes no sense!


But it's the liberal media's fault that it makes no sense...

and hey... that first American needs an s, or you'll be dumber than a pear.

I can't imagine how much he's going to mine from "Are you smarter than a fifth grader". At least it's still on the air.

MAD did an article on rejected reality shows, and it was reprinted in this month's Mad Classics. There was Betty Ford's Temptation Island.

It's funny. 'Habbing with the Stars is not.

A new character! No longer are we to be subjected to the turnip! Long Live the Pear!

I'd love to see Tinshley appear on Fifth Grader. Love to.

Particularly if, for every answer he got wrong (and I'd force him to stay around and answer all the questions, rules be damned), a public-school teacher got to punch him in the dick.

I'm a little surprised his "parody" show wasn't Are You Smarter Than a (Badly-Drawn) Dog, however.

I don't even understand what it means. In what possible way can that be considered elitist?

luke said...

Can we draft him onto the show like he drafted Walter Williams for president? Letter campaign, people!

If "Smarter than a 5th grader" is considered elitist by the network, its only because right wing cranks like Tinsley always accuse them of being that and of being liberal. The result is crappy programing and networks moving to the right in order not to invite criticism from righty bloviators.

You don't get to complain about this Tinsley. This is exactly what you wanted.

So is that pear somehow related to the college-student turnip?
