That damned Prize

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Nobel Peace Prize, President Obama.

President Obama was responsible for removing dangerously unstable Neocons from power. No one in 2009 did anything better than that to make the world a more peaceful place.

Wingnuts fucking HATE peace. They're never happier when they're starting immoral wars or executing innocent people. Why should they care who gets the prize?

I think the committee considered this, but realized that giving the prize to Obama would be a subtler satire of Bush's enormities.

Word Verification: Pronve, an anagram of P.R. Oven, the place where Tinsley puts every piece of hate mail, even, if it contains accurate information.

Gosh, time flies. I figured there'd be at least another week before the Tinsh's Nobel Prize hissy fit started.

Mallard then stared at the camera silently for about 10 seconds before screaming, "AGHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

Get over it, Tinsley. The rest of the world has.

Oh wow. Just... that kid's head. It's enormous. How has the rest of his body not been crushed under its weight?

Honest to god, I had completely forgotten about the peace prize thing.

Hey ducks (and all righties who staged a hissy, I suppose), do you know who won the peace prize last year? No, you don't. And you know why? Cause no one cares. The committee may have only given him it because he's Obama, but you only give a shit because it was Obamna who won it.

An ex-president of Finland.

Wait, I'm not a neocon. Nevermind, carry on!

Rush Limbaugh's 40 million contract should be enough to establish a peace prize of equal monetary value. In fact, I bet the combined earnings of Rush, Sean, and Glenn would be enough to award 1.5mil a year and hold a press conference and ceremony to a deserving individual, without giving up too much in their daily lives. I guess passenger seat nagging is much easier though.

Strap yourselves in, folks...this is only going to get more preachy and hysterically distorted!

Will it top my personal favorite preachy and hysterically distorted strips after "Jon Stewart Gate"?

"How has the rest of his body not been crushed under its weight?"

Wooo.... It is what it is....

On the plus side, the kid's no George W. Bush. On the minus side, he's no Henry Kissinger.

Given the strip's lag time, maybe he's talking about last year. At the least, he may have had this ready since then, since nobody he likes would have won their stupid ol' award anyway.

You know Tinshley drew this, then sat in his dingy office, shades drawn, imagining the same kid rolling around on the floor with him.

Anonypederast, no doubt, had the same fantasy. Mmmm, mmm, mmm!

Humans enjoy four basic flavors: sweet, salty, sour and bitter.

Ducks, it seems, know only two: sour and bitter.

dlauthor said...

You forgot umami. Which, of course, neo-cons don't trust, because it was named by foreigners who aren't even white! Which makes it racist.

Although I think roast duck, properly cooked, is absolutely bursting with umami!

And here we gooooo!!

Remember those sociopaths at the 2004 Republican Convention who were proudly wearing Purple Heart band-aids as a way of mocking John Kerry's war injuries? That same spirit is on display in this strip.
