That damned sob

What's Mallard raving about today?

Hillary Clinton.

You know, I am beginning to suspect Mallard may not like Senator Clinton.

So now Hillary looks like our ex-Secretary of State. Is Mallard's rage focused on Hillary, White Condi, or Madeline Albright? Make up your mind already, duck.

I think this is how Bruce Tinsley sees the world. Faces are no longer distinguishable, but rather consist of the same menacing head floating out of the TV and attacking him.

can we give him that the song line is clever at least? its the old broken clock saw, but still.

That assumes he has the required equipment.

"Hysterical Hillary" will now join "Al Gore Says He Invented The Internet" and "The Dean Scream" in Tinny's beatin' stable of dead horses (ironically) made of complete horses**t.

Three weeks ago, Tom Toles drew a far more accurate picture.

Tinny would've scored more points by pointing out that the media blew this non-event completely out of proportion--but he's too busy doing the same damn thing.

This cartoon is so bad that it goes without saying, so I'll give Tinsley credit for drawing Hillary's dress pretty well.

One of my favorite webcomics patiently explained the whole Mallard Fillmore phenomenon to me a few minutes ago. I mean, I already understood the basic idea, but this made me giggle instead of swear.

(Did anyone visit the link I posted yesterday? I'm curious about the reaction.)

What a hideous drawing. What a stupid song. What a bunch of nonsense. The sad thing about it is that, presumably, this is about as good as it gets for conservative humor, or else Tinsely wouldn't have a job, right? It bothers the hell out of me this guy gets his work published in major newspapers. He's not funny, he's not clever, he can't draw, and he barely seems to understand English. If this is the best the conservatives can do, then that is just sad.

Oh. My. God.

I'm sorry for the off-topic multiposting, but this is just too precious to pass up. You'd think I'd be inured to this sort of "puritan turns out to be pervert" news by now, but dayaaaamn, baby.

From's Studio Breifing:

The operator of the Utah-based Flix Club, which, as part of the Clean Flix chain, drew fire from major studios for removing scenes depicting sex and violence from home videos, has been arrested in Orem, Utah on charges of having sex with underaged girls. According to Orem police, Daniel Thompson also told the girls that his business was actually a cover for a pornography studio and asked them to participate in making a porn movie. The police report also said that they uncovered a "large quantity" of pornography at Thompson's business. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Thompson told the arresting officers that he was unaware that the girls were not of legal age and that the porn movies were for his "personal use."

I know you're reading this, Bruce Tinsley. Let's hear your take on this. OH, LET'S.

And further proof of how abysmal this strip is at its own subject matter, he can't even get the concept of caricature right. He just keeps drawing the same bucktoothed abominations over and over when he needs to draw a public figure.

I'm not sure why Mallard has that giant talking Nancy Reagan head in his living room with him. Nor do I want to, given his week-long odyssey of pantless TV-ward crotch-pointing.

I visited Afghani-chan yesterday. Thought I'd just click on a few and ended up mesmerized, reading every strip.

It is weird to see the massacre of 3,000 people when planes crashed into the Twin Towers reduced to a cat scratch. And the warring over Kashmir reduced to tripping and crashing. But it's kind of haunting, nonetheless.

Qlelos -- A quesadilla drowned in half a bottle of spilled Corona, surrounded by empties. A common sight in Bruce Tinsley's home.
