Those damned models

What's Mallard raving about today?

Supermodels.

Do you think Mallard survive the inevitable firestorm of outrage generated by speaking truth to supermodel power?

Oh, and puns on bulimia are just hilarious.

Unfortunately, I've already played the "Tinny's running on empty" bit, so I have nothing to add.

Truce Binsley said...

I'm not sure if that even qualifies as a pun.

Kaitlyn said...

I don't see a bulimia pun... I see a ...something... related to plastic surgery.


Oh, it's his "joke."

Erich said...

The supermodel's name is "Purge Daley!" Get it? Oh, that's so clever!

Shoot me now.

Kaitlyn said...

I see it now - Oh, that Mallard!

On a role.

Honest to Gosh, I saw the drawing first and thought we'd be reading something about Ann Coulter. Isn't she second on the list behind Walt Williams for Candidates Tinsley Wants To Recruit?

Purge Daley. That's extra clever, because Purge is such a common girl's name.

Ianrey, I too thought that was Ann Coulter until I noticed the lack of an adam's apple.

*sees Tuesday's strip*

OH GOD NO, IT'S ANOTHER "THEME" WEEK. Tinny's gonna be assaulting us with Purge Daily...well, daily. So I guess her name makes sense now, because I have the overwhelming urge to purge.

Once again, the real humor here is unintentional; Tinny just got finished going "duhhhhhhh!" at a report about how attractive women are attractive--and now he's mocking a character of a woman who's mauling herself in the endless pursuit to BE more attractive.

Go back to the "university study" strip to see the quality of the man she will wind up with.

Now THAT's irony. And another strip to make Mrs. Tinny cry.

How does Tinsley look at himself in the mirror after submitting cartoons like this?

At some point he has to submit it to his publisher - the "moment of truth". How does he do that without feeling sick afterward, wondering what happened to the young idealist he used to be many years ago, filled with so many ideas? Where is that little boy? Is it too late to find him again?

Finally -- Jack's is about to open (mrs. parker read my cartoons she said I'd be famous some day) Time to forget about all that - about everything (goddamn cop i hate my bicycle fucking cop) They love me here ("and four other girls showed up... wearing MY nose") Republicans love me and all the good people love me for saving them from the liberals and (purge daley for christs sake im a professional cartoonist what happened oh god for christs sake for) Fading. Gone.

The paycheck will be deposited in the morning.

So, I have to admit that I'm quite offended. One the one hand, I get offended by him making straw men to knock over. But bulimia nervosa is a disorder. Hardy-har-har.

I guess I'm just not looking at it right.
