That damned dinosaur

What's Mallard raving about today?

Dinosaurs, the Economy.

Anatomically, with knees like that, this particular dinosaur was doomed from the start.

What interests me is that Mallard manages to cast blame at all liberals quite...well, liberally...for any minor outrage which ends up in his email. But, outside of a few pathetic attempts to blame liberals for housing loans, when the Economy collapses after a long period of Republican rule, blame is noticeably absent from his outrage.

Wow! For the first time since the election he actually said something vaguely relevant to current events! In a few more months, he may actually acknowledge that Obama's president!

When people say that a company is "too big to fail" they mean that its failure will cause so much disruption that we must not allow it to fail, not that its large size will prevent it from failing.

Of course, this is just another one of Mallard's lazy-assed "I don't like something, so I'll slap a dinosaur on it" comics. It's not supposed to make logical sense.

Seems like, in this analogy, the dinosaur is the capitalist system and the little fuzzy guy is the terrorists.

The beauty of this strip is that the dinosaur appears to be simply lumbering around randomly telling passing-by animals that he believes that his size makes him impervious to negative consequences.

Also, ducky seems to think that dinosaurs had scales.

VW: ratera. seems appropriate.

AIG is a dinosaur?

That's an odd analogy. Its collapse was for not sticking to tried-and-true concepts like prudent investing ... so it's less like a dinosaur and more like the Giant Rat of Sumatra.
