That damned flatulence

What's Mallard raving about today?

Free Gas.

Despite earlier fears, Dave's Diner opened just in time for a flatulence joke. Thank God for that or we might have missed out.

Despite earlier indications that it was under construction, it has also apparently been open for "years"...

Mallard has the opportunity to note that companies offering $2.99 gas promos with their cars are only trying to delay the inevitable and not working towards securing their future through innovation and genuine technological advancement. Instead he makes a fart joke. Excellent.

Check out the daring perspective in today's comic. Mallard and Dave have turned their backs on the reader. Does this herald the beginning of a new, more cinematic style? Or is it just because of the fart joke?

Concerning 12xuser's question above:

My first assumption was perhaps BT had simply forgotten how to draw either character.

But I think 12xuser probably got it right. That fact that Dave's back is pointed toward MF is part of the "joke".

Mallard and Dave are actually designing a car to run on flatulance. The fartmobile does all Dave's Diner deliveries.


That's my interpretation and I'm sticking to it.

You think Dave's stomach is doing the talking?

I've been away from Mallard Fillmore (and pretty much the internet) since the 19th and this is what I have to deal with?

A lame fart joke that would embarrass everyone in the beans scene in Blazing Saddles?

If the food in Dave's Diner gives you gas then I'm sure not eating there. (especially if they have a special on Duck L'Orange)
