That damned Daytime TV

What's Mallard raving about today?


An obvious nominee for next year's Creepiest Unintentional Self-Revelation award, it appears that Mallard spends all day and night in front of his television. And yet still manages to complain about television with no hint of irony.

...Elk hunting?

Other weird things about this strip:

(1) Tinny tried to be "artsy" with the lettering for a change, and there's evidence of effort. Still a complete mess, though; look at "Elk Hunting Melt Those" above "ABS!" (...Elk hunting?)

(2) Mallard's eyes. This is the same Mallard image Tinny's drawn God-knows-how-many times, and the pupils are just...bizarre, even for a nightmarish freak like Mallard. (Or Tinsley.) Is that what too much telly does to your eyes?

(3) Why does Tinny hate self-esteem? Oh, right, sour grapes, silly me. Evolution, video games, self-esteem: they destroyed the Roman Empire and they'll destroy us too!!!1

...Maybe "Donald Trump Elk Hunting?" I don't know--I don't follow celebrity gossip shows with the same fervor Tinny seems to.

Side note: Speaking of evolution...I wish it were possible to play Kick Ben Stein's Crotch. I could play that all day.

Mallard watches too much TV.

Moving on.

Memo to Bruce: televisions keep making those shows because fools like you watch them. Lazy fools outnumber rabid fans when it comes to viewership.

I gotta agree with billy here - Elk Hunting? WTF?

I always tell my kids that ignorance is never something to be proud of, but when it comes to daytime TV . . . .

Will Tinsley to apply the same standard to something that matters, e.g. presidential debates?

"Flag Pins! YOUR MINISTER!! Putting your hand over your heart!!! ---- This just in: debates run by media hacks were invented solely to make those run by the League of Women Voters look good."
