That damned Earl

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Writer's Strike, America.

You hear that America? Mallard Fillmore is accusing you of watching too much television.

In actual fact, however, it seems the writer's strike affected Mallard more than just about anyone I know.

Actually, I think he's trying to be fond here. Maybe.

I did not realize, however, that Jason Lee had been replaced by Gallagher as Earl.

Again, the Mallard character is supposed to work in Television.

So, it appears that once again, the self-loathing duck is biting the hand that feeds him. Or, since he's a duck, gumming it savagely.

The unspoken punch line to this strip is same as yesterday: "You are ignorant fools to pay attention to my media!"

And, same as yesterday, Tinsley is being just a little too obvious about how he feels about his readers.

I'm beginning to suspect there's some intelligence here.

No one can honestly be dumb enough to repeatedly accuse Americans of doing exactly as he does while making it apparent that he considers himself morally superior over them.

Unless it's a giant ongoing strawman gag by a liberal.

It's probably more that the standard for conservative humor has been unbelievably low for quite a while. Just look at the trainwreck that was the 1/2 Hour News Hour.

Heh heh!

Eh, this one's not so offensive by Tinny's (sub)standards, so I'll forgo the lecture tonight...

Larry looks pretty tv addicted as well, what's he complaining about?

The woman's posture, for lack of a better word, hurts me just looking at her.

Does she have a neck?


Confession - I once called a friend a tv character's name. ONCE. When I was crazy obsessed with the show. (Since I started watching 2 years before it ended!)

Damn, scientology's ruined Jason Lee.

Oh. My. God.

Where is that speech balloon pointing? Is that woman some kind of pornographic ventriloquist?
