What's Mallard raving about today?
While I know bruce loves dogs, why does that hairy dong have eyes?
Fucking moron, encouraging people to give pets as gifts. I learned that was a bad idea when I was four years old. That adorable puppy (and yeah, somehow he drew a dog properly, have a cigar) is gonna be back in the shelter again by Jan. 15.
We got our latest dog 4 years ago this month.I never thought of him as a Christmas gift, because the little monkey already owned the house by Christmas Eve.He belonged to a friend. She had no yard, and the only person home during the day at all (not every day, but most or some) couldn't give a shit about him.Guess what? It didn't work out and she hated him!I also got my Dixie as gift of sorts - a month before my 9th birthday. Again, by the time the big day rolled around, I was hers.I saw tips of what to do instead of a puppy - a card with a dog on it and a note inside - let's go pick out a puppy later on!I will note that I did get two birds for Christmas in '98. I don't know where they are, through no fault of my own. My dad took them, gave them to his mom, and now? All I remember is Ginger's predatory stance Xmas morn.
See what happens when you deign to use a reference, Tinny? Try to make a habit of it, and maybe your dogs won't look like mutant horses...and things like Mallard's "idea" bulb (if that's indeed what it's supposed to be) won't look like a loose screw.DLAuthor: Too bloody true. But Tinny's a "big picture" sort of idea-man, concerned more with his good intentions being recognized rather than with the consequences of his advice. (That's why he still digs the GOP.)...And what's the road to Hell paved with, everybody?
Oh God he's doing rhymes again someone take him out and break his drawing hand with a rock quickly before he kills again
Yes, please give a pet as a Christmas gift. That could not possibly be a large contributor to the high shelter overpopulation crisis.
Nice dog. I wonder where he copied it from. He should see if he find a light bulb to copy, if that is indeed supposed to be a light bulb.
Yay. Here come another two straight months of bad poetry. Merry Christmas indeed.
Also, how is it a gift idea if you're getting the puppy for yourself?
Oh - if it's a puppy for yourself, that's different.As long as you don't like stick it in a box until 12/25...It is a gift to the pup - because shelters are charnel houses!!!! It's TRUE!!!! They don't help puppies, they KILL them! For sport!
"Guppy" and "puppy" is a lame enough rhyme as it is, but it's even worse when you consider it suggests a puppy is the only pet that isn't a gecko or guppy.
Rather than curse the darkness, let's be glad there's (1) a nice sentiment, (2) a pretty good puppy sketch, and (3) no dopey fruitcake poetry!
Good luck finding one. Every moron on the planet who has watched Lady and the Tramp seems to think it's brilliant to go snatch up all the baby animals everywhere to put in a box. Somehow, all these babies will magically poop, pee, and eat what they want them to where they want them to, and not wreak, destroy, or damage property. My local shelter here actually won't release any baby animals right before Christmas because it's an impulse gift that rarely benefits the animal.
I seem to recall Tinsley saying, many moons ago, that henceforth, all light bulbs in his strips would be portrayed by compact fluroescent bulbs. I hate, hate, hate this strip, but I do like self-referential nonsense!
Mallard's Christmas Gift Idea #31: A penis
Yes, a cute puppy. But why does it have a "I can't wait to get out of this comic strip" look on its face?
