Those damned Jobs

What's Mallard raving about today?

Marketing Wizards, Debt.

How many more weeks of "trivial crap that's bugging me today" are we going to have to endure?

ZOMG! Americans spend beyond their means! Who knew?

If Mallard speaks for the average hard-working American, then he's mocking his fans who run these cards up into debt. Or has he successfully split that one up in his brain where only the tiny liberal minority of unreal Americans somehow becomes a majority of spenders running up credit card debt?

Well, it does touch on a common MF theme: DEY IZ SPENDINZ MONEY DEY DONT HAV.

But as others have already pointed out this week, this is how our economy works right now, and all the things Tinsley is bitching about were created by the Free Market. (In fact, I remember old columns by George F. Will basically declaring that people in deep credit card debt had no one but themselves to blame and that we should allow nature to take its course.)

Ergo, Tinsley hates America. ...Color me shocked.

Ahhh, another installation of Mallard's, "I don't have a point, I just like bitching." series.

Whatever happened to, "He thinks average, hardworking Americans need a break instead of a lecture"?

deepbeep, I'd click that link, but I don't want mallardfillmore.com in my browser history.

It would make the German porn websites and My ittle Pony Fan Club would look bad.

Completely off topic, but fascinating:

Granted, it's not the full picture, but I find it's a fairly decent explanation for the temperatures, snowfall, and why we aren't roasting in winter. Yet.

Ducky is right is right.

Blallard is just a hateful, mean-spirited prick.

Then he drinks his breakfast, and it really gets ugly.

Cheers,

Oh, look. It's "jump up my butt, you blithering, drunken hack Saturday" again.

Where's Anonyrast lately, anyway? Please don't tell me he's down at the mall trying to get kids to sit on his lap.

PRO TIP: humor must be crisp. Today's is another badly written script that just needs an editor to cut 30% of the words:


"The wizards behind 'Black Friday' and 'Cyber Monday' have announced 'Credit-Card Thursday' ...

... which they say will created 20,000 jobs at collection agencies!"


As y'all have noted, it's mocking Tinshley's base but can't it be done COMPETENTLY?

Hey everybody, can't get enough of Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes? Now he's on the comics page, in duck form!
