OK, first things first, since you all probably had the same question I did...who the hell is Rush?
Dave's little boy. Lives to play basketball. Wants to forgo his 4th-grade eligibility and go straight to the pros. His teacher, Ms. Carp (pronounced Mizzzzzz Carp), is also president of the local NEA chapter. She started disliking Rush immediately upon finding out he was named after the talk-show host, not the band. Other kids want to know where babies come from; Rush wants to know why there are no Asian-Americans in the NBA.After getting that out of the way, I have to say I'm shocked to be reminded this comic has been taking up space in newspapers for over 12 years.
Though I suppose it's worth asking Mallard the following: Are you even trying to be funny anymore, or have you given up completely?
