That damned __________

What's Mallard raving about today?

Your favorite professional athlete.

Excellent! Audience participation joke time!

Say it ain't so Roger Federer.
Say it ain't so Tiger Woods.
Say it ain't so Peyton Manning.
Say it ain't so Thierry Henry.
Say it ain't so Joe Thornton.

Wait a second...I don't get the joke.

I assume DaveyK KNEW that and was just noting that it's still pretty nonsensical. Given that, I would imagine, in excess of ninety percent of athletes are not involved in scandals, the odds of your favorite being seem...pretty low.

Say it ain't so, The Iron Sheik!

Michael said...

Say it ain't so, LaDainian Tomlinson.
Say it ain't so, Steve Nash.
Say it ain't so, Takanori Gomi.

Say it ain't so, Bruce Tinsley.

Hey, that one works!

yes, the most pressing concern today is the scandals of sports figures.. Those guys before were never in the news as suspects in murder cases, accused of point shaving, doping to get huge muscles, or betting on the sport you coach.

my joke one is:
Say it ain't so, Takeru Kobayashi!

The sport of competitive hot dog eating will never be the same

Tinny, if you DO read this, go over to "Sherman's Lagoon" right now and read the "garbage strike" strips.

Lovers and haters can argue over the quality of "Sherman's Lagoon," but that's beside the point; this is how you do a story arc satirizing current-event situations.

Notice how not once does any character acknowledge--let alone begin lecturing--the reader?

You've just taken your first step into a larger world.

Say it ain't so, Jacques Jones.

Because it was a little kid to say it ain't so originally?

Say it ain't so, Andre the Giant.

I deleted something that made my second sentence make sense - why did Rush return? Is this the point of school in Tinny's world?

It was in '04 in my History class - taught my a Yankees fan, and the smartest kid (me) was rooting for the Sox.

Much fun.

Say it ain't so, Curt Schilling!
