That damned Superstore

What's Mallard raving about today?

Superstores.

Mallard hates the Free Market.

Wow, deja vu...

It just proves that some jokes are so good, they deserve repeating. Of course, this only satisfies the "repeating" portion of that statement.

Oh Good Lord....

Tinsley's production pattern has mutated from "the same 'joke' with trivial variations repeated daily for a week" to "the same 'joke' with trivial variation repeat at random intervals throughout eternity".

ARRGGHHH! Save us! At least a week only has seven days!

Honestly? At least he managed to go a whole strip without mentioning that he's been spewing this crap out for fifteen years...

I've been in several mega stores, never had any trouble finding employees. In fact, the one I go to now is downright teeming with them.

Since he seems to deem it fair to repeat his jokes neigh verbatim, (previous one was actually sorta funny. This one isn't really. Switching the order of the bubbles in the last panel would have helped.) I figure I can re-use my comment.

Ducky, it's not that there aren't any employees, it's that all the employees are hiding from you, because you're an crotchety, bitchy old man who reeks of Colt 45 and tells them how they're doing everything wrong.

It's like Groundhog Day, only without the humor. And, more importantly, the personal growth.

It's not too late to redeem this inane series of "jokes" if (like the Bill Murray character in "Groundhog Day") Mallard Fillmore eventually grew up and learns something ... such as to shop from a local merchant or thrift store, for something made-in-America.

I dunno--I generally try to avoid such stores on principle, but on those uncommon occasions when I do find myself in one, it's generally not hard to find what I'm looking for, and even if it is--and even if employees are scarce--there's always gonna be SOMEONE around to point me in the right direction. I think Tinsley's problem may be his tendency to stagger drunkenly into Walmart with no clear goal in mind, looking for employees to harangue with his rants about fat cops and liberal cavemen. Under the circumstances, you can kinda see why they'd want to make themselves scarce.

He forgets to draw the safari hat in every other panel, and he complains about other people's work ethic?

Of course considering the low, next to nothing, wages and lousy short hours employees of Superstores have to endure, who can blame them for wanting to do as little work as possible?

And most of these are contributors to your precious Republican party.

Tinkley doesn't hate the free market. He hates the people who get chewed up in its gears.

As well as pretty much everybody and averything.

WV: potride. Needs no explanation.
