That damned Chevrolet

What's Mallard raving about today?

The future, Chevrolet.

Positive: Actually a funny joke today. Reminds me of Stephen Colbert's "Enjoy that joke because you children won't know what a glacier is." (To paraphrase).

Negative: Please tell me I won't still be reading Mallard Fillmore every day in 2012.

Yeah, at first glance it's funny, but I gotta call bullshit on this. How do you explain "trillion" by stacking Chevrolets? You could put any question at all in that kid's mouth and it would make as much sense.

This also shows that America's favorite duck doesn't believe that there will be any good, American made Chevrolets still around in three years.

Tinshley knows what a Chevrolet is. It's what he wraps around a telephone pole while he's blacked out.

I take great comfort in today's strip, since Tinkley's predictions are invariably wrong.

If he'd replaced "Chevrolet" with "Republican elected official" ....

12xuser is right - how convoluted is using Chevrolets to explain a trillion? Just say 1000 billion. How does the dad happen to know what happens when you stack 1 trillion Chevrolets? Did he get that from his book of useless facts, when he should have been reading "Curing Male Pattern Baldness In Your Child"?

Sorry for stealing someone else's idea but this has to be said.

Corrected Comic:

"What's a trillion dollars?

"Back in the 1980s or '90s, America had 250,000,000 occupants. Imagine 4,000 of those countries.

"What's America?

"It was a country, filled, mostly, with racists, idiots, jackasses and extremists. All the other countries, were filled with, slightly, less of those but America collapsed. Religious extremists bankrupted it, took away all of the civil rights, stopped its technological advancement and censored everything. It entered the Dark Ages, shortly, before the other countries demanded everything back.

Verification Word: vingbor, America's name after it goes bankrupt and other countries take over.

Exaggeration much?
