Those damned genders

What's Mallard raving about today?

Gender.

Why are cavemen celebrating Christmas before the birth of Jesus Christ?

And why is Mallard contributing to the War on Christmas by referring to it only as "Holiday" hunting and gathering?

an odd tribute to johnny hart?

Wow, Tinny's heart must've grown three sizes before he sat down to draw this:

(1) The cavewoman (I assume that's a woman, and not an extremely metrosexual caveperson) is an overachiever who takes a share in the traditional male duties, while the man is a slothful, indecisive idiot--in contradiction to Tinny's usual attitude towards wimmens these days.

(2) It shows some effort in the art and lettering. The text is clear, uniform and readable, and not crammed into corners. While the caveman looks a bit familiar (as in, "traced from someone else's toon;" the two cavepeople don't even seem to be drawn by the same person)--and Tinny shows us that he knows drawing rocks is quicker and easier than drawing legs--at least this gives us more than the recent batch of tossed-off duck heads.

(3) No liberal-bashing or general bitching and moaning. ...Gosh.

(4) The strip is...coherent? Seriously? HOLY GOD, IT'S THE SEVENTH SIGN! ARMAGEDDON! ARMAGEDDON! REPENT! REPENT!

Happy Holidays! ...You wanna fight about it?

Oh, wait, I recognize that caveman now. Tinny's not tracing from someone else's toon, he's cribbing from his own old stuff.

It's still a step up from the recent wave of crap, though.

So, why is his foot doing the thinking?

The cavewoman's empty, white eye sockets are VERY DISTURBING to me.

Wow - not funny, of course, but wow.

Who's to blame today?

If he doesn't name the antagonist, we'll never know.


And way to waste the Sunday space, dick... er, duck.
