That damned Dag

What's Mallard raving about today?

Campaigning, Liberals.

Dag, interestingly, is using a saying which post dates his existence. Which means, apart from being a tax-loving Liberal, he is also a time-traveler or a prophet.

Apart from that, Mallard continues to display the nuanced perceptions of a rather dull dog.

Added to the list of Stuff I Didn't Want To See (only I didn't really use the word "stuff"): Mallard in a loincloth.

...Meanwhile, President Gub-Yah reasserted his conservative credentials by robbing Peter and Paul's children to pay the already wealthy Mook, then sending the kids to fight a war he declared on the Nuggh tribe. For his part, Vice-President Mook defecated in the water hole and stabbed Knuk in the face. (Knuk apologized for the incident.)

In celebration, Mook then crushed the skull of a strange talking bird and feasted upon its entrails. Said Mook, "Bird say, friend! Bird say, wait, I on your side! Mook not care! Mook KILL! Mook KILL! Ha ha ha!"

Dag should become a spend-and-spend Republican, so he can get rid of that damn Librul budget surplus he inherited and spend billions on an insane war on the country who didn't attack his.

Then he would get reelected in 2004 USA.

Apologies if this has been discussed previously (I have to confess to being relatively new to this blog), but did anybody notice that link to at the bottom of today's strip? Is that new?

It appears to be some Virginia art dealer's online store... for a mere $475, you too can own your very own original Mallard artwork!!!1! Hastily watercolored by Bruce... or the five-year-old neighbor kid... or a parapalegic monkey. Those colors are offensively ugly.

I'd get one, but $475 is an awful lot to spend on emergency toilet paper.

Named After Ham: Good catch! No, I think this is new (I'm not going to go back and rummage through several older strips at once, for fear of getting pukey); it hasn't been discussed here before that I recall.

And yes--the coloring is hideous and the price is completely obscene. I wonder if they'll actually find someone who would spring for it?

It's a B.C. homage.

i think the real Neanderthals are the bone-heads who still refer to the government collecting taxes to pay for roads, schools, services, etc as "STEALING".
