Those damned wedding vows

What's Mallard raving about today?

Wedding Vows.

A discernible joke and non-political content (unless someone finds a way to stretch this to fit Gay Marriage)...

I assume Mallard is on vacation and there is a ghost writer for today's strip.

From the look of it, the (backless) couch ends halfway over and Harold is sitting on the floor.

It happens sometimes: a mildly witty, apolitical bon mot floats through his drunken mind, so he grabs it and sticks it in a comic. I am no longer going to give him any credit for his occasional lapses into coherence. He's still an asshole.

C'mon, let's give credit where credit is due. Harold seems to be a funny guy.

I do think renewing wedding vows is faintly silly (and usually only seems to be done in a fit of "nothing wrong with our marriage, honest!!!") so I think I may agree with Tinsley on something. How odd. Maybe I'm over-tired.

Sounds like Mrs. Tinsley still had some scrap of romance left in her, after all these years. But don't worry -- Bruce should have successfully crushed that now.

I think that gag is a Ziggy.

This has got to be the high point of the strip: an actual joke!

We should encourage good acts, although it is more fun to snark.

It's fine, except for the part where they're larding in front of the TV.


America according to Mallard: bad posture in front of a television.

eddypo. If that is a Ziggy than he's being doubly unoriginal. Ripping off Ziggy was a plot device of a classic Seinfeld episode. (when Elaine submits a cartoon to the New Yorker.) But then, Seinfeld might be over Bruce Tinsley's head. He has trouble understanding the subtle nuances of the Teletubbies.

Harold's my favorite character. This is classic Harold. Give Harold his own spin-off strip!

I refuse to give him ANY leeway. Sure, this one isn't bad by Tinsley standards, but that's a pretty low bar to cross, isn't it? It's not exactly a work of genius, either. And today he's talking about how stoopid Kids Today are. So really...
