That damned cell phone

What's Mallard raving about today?

Cell Phones.

No, Mallard. That has nothing to do with talking on your phone while driving.

It has to do with the fact that you don't call your "friends" except when you have nothing else to do.

It has to do with the fact that you spend the entire call underscoring their lack of importance to you.

Truthfully, about the only insight on display today is the unintentional self-revelation that Mallard has no friends...at least not using the standard definition of "friend". Given his personality, however, this is not exactly surprising.

I was hoping the last panel would be "Hello ... GAWK! SMASH! ..." ... thus providing a useful public service warning at the end of a sad, angry career.

There's still time!

Just to clear things up, in case there's any confusion: Mallard isn't MAKING the call, he's RECEIVING it. (Hard to believe that anybody would call Mallard, even if it is an "I only call you have positively nothing better to do" call...)

He called to say, "fuck you, kill yourself and take Joe Liccar, "Chuck" Asay, "Hapajap," Glen McCoy, Mike Ramirez, Gary Varvel and all the rest with you!"

This picture, speaking of Glenn McCoy, is such horrible shitthat it must be posted: http://i33.tinypic.com/166fzno.jpg. (http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=2664888&userid=0&perpage=40&pagenumber=778)

Please, read the thread I linked; it full of shit that makes Tinsley look like Ralph Nader.

Sorry, I made a mistake: That was written by his brother, Gary. It was, however, fucking awful.

And can picture it right now, how he was driving. The police stoping him forthree felonies : driving while speaking on a phone, driving ala Nicole Ritchie (against traffic)and causing a car crash mountain. I bet all of you were waiting for a DUI reference, but naa. were he drunk he would be sluring and saying things around "... i wanna fuck you all while choking Chet to death."

Also since its more possible "Anonimous" could be in this one...you had one thing wrong in your insult. I'm not a typical Obama Voter, as i'm still 16 therefore i'm no voter at all. but the things about the meds is true, i have voices in my head that tell me that i have a head like a hole, just like my soul. i just scream back at them that i would rather die than give them control.

Erich is right. It's Mallard's friends who don't respect him, not the other way around.

@fr: yeah you right. Right about the cartoons posted by those coons, and right about the sentiment "gently caress Gary McCoy". It made me all ingstie looking at even the ironic posting of that poo poo.

Kaitlyn said...

You know, you can always say that you don't want to talk on the phone right now. If they're your friends, they'll understand.

Or bitch about modern technology.

Whatever's easier.

I change what i said. mallard is just working in Mainstream Media...and has no idea who the fuck just called. Couldn't he just have said "wrong number" and end it right there?, but NOOO, he needs to keep on listening and then a pretty lame joke about tchnology. couldn't he at least pull a "Crankshaft" on "Person on the other line" and just hang up!!!
