What's Mallard raving about today?
Sometimes following Mallard's train of thought is like attempting to read Finnegans Wake, except insofar as I doubt there's any payoff to understanding Mallard.
After 15 days complaining about other crap, Mallard returns to Affirmative Action, who is still anthropomorphized into the Junta leader of a Banana Republic, replete with a giant "A" on his cap. In this installment, we learn the unlikely detail that he allowed someone to tattoo something on his left buttock without knowing what it said but found a way to read it at a later date.
And, for the record, Affirmative Action is nothing like what Orwell had in mind. He had Bush, Cheney, and the Republican Noise Machine in mind.
