That damned Border Collie

What's Mallard raving about today?

Dogs, academic standards, progressives, grade inflation.

Honestly, I refuse to read that much text. What the hell is going on this week?

Instead I'm going to point out that college-educated dog shares roughly the same facial expression as Evil Sun. So apparently he is getting his degree in Evil.

A woman commits voter fraud, which Mallard hails as "community service" because it exposed the ease with which the crime may be committed. Darn Liberals!

(I doubt he'd apply the same "logic" to any of the several shootings that have taken place in public schools, but that's Tinny Logic for you.)

I want to assume that "easy commission" aspect is somehow meant to relate to the strip's "gag" about a dog graduating college.

That way, Tinny's merely incompetent--rather than a potential danger to himself and others.

Why is he dissing Wassu with his strawman argument when clearly U-Dub has the more lax standards.

Erich said...

This woman's "community service" is roughly akin to shoplifting in order to point out how lax the store's security is.

Tinshley's just still bitter about the admissions officer at WSU who told him twenty years ago that with his academic record, a cocker spaniel would have a better chance of getting in.

Wow, my alma mater gets mentioned in a comic! That's GREAT! Makes me feel like a dog (woof?), but it's still excellent.

Oh, and it's "Wazzu," Scanman. Not to be picky or anything, but that's how we do it. Although I think the university is really trying to distance itself from anything with the Wazzu name because of all the party school connotations. I'm sure having its students compared to Mr. Wuggles will help a great deal with that.

What? No A&P citation with this one?

GAWD--I live in Seattle, so this stupid story was all over the papers for weeks, and now Tinsley's got to beat it to death.

Does U Wa really have a reputation for lax standards? I'm applying to grad school there this fall, and I've heard it's quite difficult to get into.

Scanman said...

Thanks tbone

TEEEE BOOOne. I shoulda looked up Washington State on Wikipedia to get the proper spelling of Wazzu. I lived in Seattle for 14 years, I shoulda known better.

However, since the woman was from Seattle I wonder if Mallard picked Washington State out of ignorance to where it's located in relationship to the city of Seattle compared to U-Dub.

I was kidding about any lax standards for the University of Washington. I just like saying the nicknames of the states largest universities.

I do get a kick how the powers-to-be at Washington State are trying to eliminate the nickname.

c'mon it makes for a great shouting call!

Isn't that from the Mr. Sparkle commercial?

Cedar said...

Well, why doesn't he take a swipe at Seattle with a U of WA reference? After all, Seattle is a hot bed of sin what with our homosexuals and liberal politicians. Wazzu is in Eastern Washington, which tends to me more conservative. Meaning, he's insulting what's more likely to me his core audience.
