That damned Google

What's Mallard raving about today?

Gray Whales, Ice, Google, Global Warming.

Given that the whale apparently believes "Thicker Ice" is "just the opposite of Global Warming," (as opposed to Global Cooling for example), I have to contend that they are not smarter than humans. But, then again, I was not among the "hundreds" unable to find the rather specious article in question.

I will admit I am impressed that whales know how to use Google, however.

I'm curious as to why Tinny's stopped using asterisks to cite his sources. Is he saving 'em for some "blistering truth-to-power" about Barry Bonds (but none of the other, whiter steroid-abusers)? Is he hoping to blame Google for lack of the quality in this mystery article? Or its lack of, you know, existence?

Either way, he's just called his readers--at least those who want to verify his claims--fools.

Good luck with that, you pathetic old soak.

Is there some sort of rule that Tinshley can't provide actual URLs in his strip?

If he really wanted us to check his sources, he could set up his own website and link directly to the articles. But he probably doesn't want us to check and notice, for instance, that an article mentions "thick" but not "thicker" ice.

It's a smart move for Tinsley to stop citing his source, because then he can follow up with another strip in which he cites his source. Voila! Twice as many strips and no additional effort! And that means even more alone time with his bottle of Old Crow.

OH NO YOU DI'NT, TINSLEY!

Way to insult your readership. Jesus, seriously, fuck him. I think I'm done with the strip at this point. I'll still visit here, but no more supporting him by actually reading the strip.

So I did EXACTLY as instructed.

And guess what? The results are hilarious.

The VERY FIRST ARTICLE THAT COMES UP supports global warming being BAD and how the gray whales' behavior might support it.

We want to talk about idiots, how about the guy who can't read?

Apparently the trapped whales occurred in 1988. They don't know why the whales stay over now, but global warming and it's effects are higher on the list for consideration than say... artic ice being too thick and global warming being wrong.

In conclusion...
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
That WAS a funny strip now that I did what it asked.

Who the fuck emails Tinsley to complain that they can't find his stupid-ass article? Most likely, people emailed him to tell him he was full of shit, which he interpreted as "I can't find the article".

Yowza. You have to admire the chutzpah of a guy who insults his readers for being too stupid to find an article supporting his point, and then directs them to a series of articles that refute his point.

Gray whales are stupid, stupid beasts. In the original strip, they wonder what "global warming activists" taste like.

So, do global warming activists actively pursue global warming, as gay rights, abortion rights, and antiwar activists actively pursue those causes?
