What's Mallard raving about today?
...Plus, it marks the strip in which Tinsley unintentionally admits that his rants are based on insecure feelings of personal inadequacy more than anything else.
The neocon way: appealing to the lowest common denominator, in this case, IQ!I watch too much Daily Show sometimes I think. But Jon Stewart's analysis of Gretchen Carlson was hilarious. And horribly revealing.
"You couldn't figure out how to use me in a million years."Okay, true enough, but why would Mallard be looking at a "Speak n Spell" anyway?
Wait, what's with this "million years" stuff? Don't all true conservatives know that the Earth is only 6000 years old, and will be ending soon, once Jeebus shows up, and therefore the mere concept of a million years must be against God?HERETIC! BLASPHEMOUS COMIC STRIP! KILL IT WITH FIRE!
Tinsley's one of those dull pseudo-Luddites. He's not against technology per se--he's against technology that makes him personally feel stupid. So, nukes--hey, fine! Cell phones--DESTROY THE ABOMINATIONS!
It's always 12 oclock (flashing) at Mallard's pad. Which, coincidentally, is just the right time to start drinking, right?
I've never figured out why some people are so proud of being stupid.Technology is often badly designed or badly explained, but the point of today's "comic" is ... Ducky Is Stupid.So hey --- we all hafta take pride in SOMETHING, right? At least Ducky isn't one of those leftwing science types!
Well, I guess we know what was on TV when Blallard came out of his alcohol-induced stupor, a cell-phone commercial! Eureka!!!!Research done!
Unfortunately, that's a garage door remote.
My father, who is 64, can operate an iPhone without any great difficulty. It took him a little while to work it out, but he managed. Tinsley is about 50, I think. He really ought to be able to operate any of the major cell phones if he put a little effort into it.
