That damned something

What's Mallard raving about today?

I have no idea.

Anyone have any idea what this is about?

I think Tinsley thinks that things like "likes working with people" and "has good people skills" are inane platitudes that have no real-world significance, and therefore it's absurd to think that one could actually CHECK them. Ha ha! It definitely fits in with our aggregate view of the man as a bitter old misanthrope that he thinks that people skills are stupid and meaningless.

Okay, why is he drawing Alfred E. Neuman from Mad Magazine being interviewed for a job? I don't get what this is about.

Hey, if private businesses suggest that's what people put on their resumes, then that's what the free market wants.

Most businesses prefer people who take orders, don't piss off fellow workers, and work on teams. That's what you put in a resume to get a job in a business. There are programmed filters created by businesses now for online resumes that specifically search for key words in order for them to even be considered.

So I have no idea why a libertarian hates it.

My guess is that this is a flashback from fifteen years ago, when Tinsley landed his job at King Features. Looks like he's still going on about his fifteen-year anniversary. Whadda hack.

Isn't that the back of George W. Bush's head? I still don't get it, but...

Pastor Josh said...

Yeah, I agree with Courtney. I'm worried that this is a big week-long story about W finding a job after the presidency. I'm not sure where it's going, but this might be a set up for the idea that W was approachable and "the kind of guy you'd like to have a beer with" and Obama is an elitist and not a people person. I will pray that I am wrong, but I'm still worried.

Whether today's "comic" concerns the Further Adventurous of Incurious George, or is merely a hint that Tinkley is looking for a job because the market for reichwing apologetics is both overcrowded and shrinking, it's the punch line that gets me.

What's funny about checking references to see whether a job applicant is an A-hole?

Did Tinkley lose out on a job because past co-workers ratted him out?

===

IDEA: Today's "comic" foreshadows that Mallard Fillmore is losing his job to George W Bush!

Hilarity ensues as the ducky sits around his house watching a nonsense-spewing TV without his pants on!

George W is applying for a job with Henry Kissinger?

I don't think so rewinn, that would require the artist to draw Mallard differently than the 3 poses he's used too using.

I think it's right that this is supposed to be W.

I seem to recall W saying something like "I'm a People Person" (maybe during the 2000 campaign? Possibly in an interview with David Letterman?)

If I'm correct, Tinsley's lead-time is really getting extreme....

GeoX said...

Wow--it never occurred to me that this was supposed to be whatsisname. Tinsley has the habit of sticking labels on fucking everyone to make up for his lack of artistic ability, and this is the time he decides to go it alone?

I dunno--the joke, such as it is, seems even more nonsensical if the guy's supposed to be our ex. Oh, Tinsley--why do you always have to suck so much?

I dunno, this looks like it could be amusing, if only to see Mallard making jokes at Bush's expense.

Jazzbumpa said...

OK. Perhaps an actual punch line isn't an absolute requirement. But shouldn't there be some element of humor?

This is the ultimate WTF(?)
