Those damned gills

What's Mallard raving about today?

Negative campaigns, evolution.

I am not sure if Mallard believes in evolution and without that knowledge have no idea exactly how to read today's panel.

In any case, it ain't funny.

Update: Ooops! comic now linked.

What amazed me is that today's artwork, if you can call it that, is the exact same as yesterday's, zoomed in on the caveman's head. Minus the shriveled index finger, of course.

WHAT THE HELL

Seriously.

That could be interpreted as an attack on somebody who believes in evolution. Which is something a right-winger would say.

Or just WHAT THE HELL IS HE OFF HIS MEDS.

"...Whereas I was created in the Lord's image! That's right--Jehovah's a browless freak with sunken eyes, a dangling upper lip, and ears like a car with both doors open! A design so intelligent that in spite of all the coarse body hair, my testicles retract up under my nose whenever there's a cold wind!! Believe it!!"

It's as if Tinny's caught in a time loop--like "It's The Mind," that episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus where the scene 'reboots' in some fashion every time the protagonist mentions deja vu.

...SHORE BEATS USIN' YER IMAGINATION, DON'T IT, TINNY?

Actually, some people still use that insult - those who don't believe in evolution. "YOU may have come from a monkey, sir, but not me!" (audience laughs)

those who don't believe in evolution.

Bill Hicks, Enki rest his gentlemanly soul, opined that people who don't believe in evolution often don't seem to have benefited from it in any visible way. (Or, to paraphrase someone who considered that he and St. Bill were both preachers: "You! Where the [tsxwyg] is your chin?")

I'm so used to reading this strip on this blog that I didn't notice that it was dropped by the Austin American Statesman for Prickly City (same as the paper Houston Chronicle) until yesterday.

Captain Slack, I'm glad there's another Preacher fan on this blog.
