"The Golden Flash." At least with the other ones you can sorta-kinda tell what the point being made is.

But that one... Seriously, what?

"Golden Flash." With the others, like Factinista said, you can glean what Tinny intended--be it lame gag, or, in the case of "Recycled Dolphins," childish attempts to provoke readers.

The best I can come up with regarding "Flash" is that someone bet Tinny couldn't hide a certain racial slur in a strip and get away with it. (I know it's a real name, and I know Tinny's scrawling is forever sloppy as hell, but that "W" looks more like "afterthought" than "deliberate.")

If it was supposed to be about socialized medicine, I congratulate Tinny on his most awesome megafail ever.

Another vote for the Golden Flash, for the same reason as factinista and Billy. Seriously, Brucie, what the jumping wzkeplu?

It was a close call between the Golden Flash and Recycled Dolphins for me. The Flash is more out-of-the-blue pure WTF, but the Dolphin strip looks like it is trying to make a political point, only to fail utterly to make any sense. As I commented when this originally ran, anyone with half a brain could come up with half a dozen "moderate environmentalist" jokes in under two minutes.

Golden Flash.

still makes no sense, though it hasn't even been 3 months since it ran.

Maybe it will make more sense in 3 years?
