That damned weather

What's Mallard raving about today?

This Guy, Spring.

About all I can discern from this panel is that, apparently, there are weather sayings other than "Don't like the weather wait 5 minutes it'll change."

Otherwise, Mallard would have been forced to use a nonsensical generic weather saying.

A "Rite of Spring"? Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't people forecast the weather year-round?

Seriously Tinsley, put down the remote.

Hhhhhhhhhhh. Tinny is complaining about annoying jerks who keep recycling tired nonsensical blatherings long after they've worn out their non-existent welcome? Tinny?

Now I know he's not really married. How many years has he been doing this? And no one's called for an intervention? "Bruce, you're not funny. You're not insightful. You never have been. You're just a gassy prick, and we can't stand to see you carrying on this charade any longer. Please, for the sake of your family, pull the pencil out of your handbutt."

I can't even being to relate to the strip. Why? If I don't like it, I change the channel or don't watch. Hard to be annoyed by someone I can literally mute.

I have abandoned the local news.

Which means I know little about the shooting in my hometown. Whoops.

It's called the Weather Channel, Mallard. When they're not spreading the lie about global warming, they're telling you what your weather will be like - often without the stupidity! (Weather on the 8s, people.)

He introduced a series on SATURDAY. I know we joke about what is wrong with him, but this goes against everything in comic strip pacing!

Sorry, Factinista, it's well known that weather only occurs between March 15 and August 6th. Though I believe due to Easter, the weather will start early this year.

I'm warming up my sayings now!

Leave it to The Duck to screw it up even when it's a legitimate peeve he's picking. His unreflective dittoheadedness is actually somewhat low in the list of reasons why Tinsley regularly disgraces the profession of "cartoonist" (or even "stripper," cf. Opus).

Let's cut Tinsley a little slack. His job is not to produce a strip that is funny, well-written or well-drawn.

His job is to provide an ideological strip, so comics page editors can show that they are being "balanced".

Quality doesn't count. Humor doesn't count. What counts is complaining about liberals and Democrats. Once he's filled his quota, he can just fill the strip with stream-of-consciousness musing.

You can call it whoring, he no doubt calls it a paycheck.

Comics aren't supposed to evoke thoughts like, "Was this cartoonist dropped on his head as a child?"
