That damned Santa

What's Mallard raving about today?

Santa, China.

Santa's elves are Chinese?

ACK!!!!!!!

He just gets worse and worse!


Santa's elves would be Russian or Scandinavian or Penguins.

Or there are no elves.

And to follow up yesterday, the lead is bullets. Free guns for all non-criminals.

Merry F'n Xmas - 2 and a half weeks early, ya hack!

And a ddmwocbr to you too.

...Because lead paint is so much heavier than, um, gold paint?

Lead paint: another potential explanation for "The Bruce Tinsley Thought Process" (*obnoxious fart noise*).

Rudolph is PISSED.

Isn't Santa a socialist give-away program? Redistributing toys from those who have lots of toys ("Santa" and/or "elves") to those who have few ("kids")?

I think he's trying to show us that the oppressed large white man is overly taxed -- and in return he only gets some token cookies and milk.

Either that, or he's letting us know that Santa is operating a sweat shop. Lead paint is just a distraction from the real issue. If Santa were to move his operation from the North Pole to the good old USA, he wouldn't have these problems.

On the bright side, there is no duck or poorly drawn Clinton (pick one) in today's strip.

The bigger question is why Tinsley is using Santa Claus during this CHRISTmas season. We all know the only appropriate iconography during this time of the year is a little swaddled baby Jesus. And a donkey. Why is Bruce Tinsley waging WAR on CHRISTMAS? Has he finally become a secular-humanist?

There's way too much cognitive dissonance going on in this strip. Santa's kvetching about the heavy load, but the look on his face is the look of a smug, bubble-living neocon who thinks he just had a humdinger of a zinger.

Hey, at least Tinsley was finally able to draw a realistic-looking dog today. Oh wait.

That goddamn creature on the right is glaring into my SOUL.

Where have I seen that look in something's eyes before?

Oh, yeah.

Don't worry. Due to global warming largely caused in this current year by the Chinese (their other contribution besides lead, and one even they admit to) Santa won't be able to move the sleigh heavy or not due to the lack of snow.

To preempt the obvious comment on today's comic: as opposed to someone whose main qualification is being the SON of an ex-President. Yes, I see the difference there.

my childhood beliefs are shattered!!





Rudolf isn't cross-eyed! It can't be!

I know, right? It never ceases to amaze me how dinks like Tinsley are so completely blind to the double standards of themselves or their party.
