Those damned college students

What's Mallard raving about today?

College Grads, Books, CDs.

Mallard is a Luddite and a cranky old man who hates youth. Knock me over with a feather.

Hmmmm.... Have you considered the possibility that this strip is actually autobiographical in nature?

It would explain a lot....

Once again, Tinsley needs an editor. The "punchline" would be funnier if he dropped the six words, so it read "...if I can find the tutorial CD".

Alternate explanation: Tinsley thinks his target audience needs him to explain the meaning of "tutorial".

America is business.
Business likes money.
Textbooks cost money.
College textbooks cost a LOT of money, and are required to be in hardcover.
College kids will always be required to buy textbooks. It is difficult to justify charging $400 for a CD.

Move along folks, nothing to see here, just a joke that doesn't work.

Then Tinsley would just complain that the liberal media is trying to censor him.

Heh - exactly right!

Many right-wing hate merchants think they're not popular because of their opinions. But in Tinsley's case, he's not popular because he's doing a comic and he's not comical.

(It's worth remembering that the odious Rush Limbaugh, pompous lying hate-filled fool that he is, tries to be entertaining. Many liberals in radio, such as Thom Hartmann, give the Rushbag credit for having once done a very entertaining program ... hatefilled etc but entertaining.)

There are plenty of "liberal" comics who don't get anywhere either. I wonder if they get together with Tinsley at cartoonist conventions and drunkenly argue over who's more oppressed.
