What's Mallard raving about today?
D&C has an award category for Sheer Laziness, right? If science was capable of creating a robot as soulless and mindless as Bruce Tinsley, this is what it would crap out on day one.
Eh, this one kind of works. Taken in a vacuum it just says that due to panic and paranoia airport security has become more and more dehumanizing. They're talking about using full body scanners to show the persons nude form and plenty of other things which are more likely to just make the experience longer, more frustrating, and more obnoxious for all passengers.Taken in context of other strips though...yeah.
This leaves three days to cover the rest of the bases: legroom in Coach, inadequate bathrooms, and (drum roll, please)..."The stuff they serve on airlines is just swill! And in such small bottles!"
I wish the Sunday "comic" had Mallard got stuck on a flight with all his stock characters.Mallard's trapped between Mr. Noseworthy, who is travelling with his boyfriend Hippie Liberal Professor, and Larry the Annoying Co-Worker who is selling candybars to Dave the Token Minority Dad whose son Rush stares at Chantelle-the-Yet-Unstrangled-by-Duckey, feeling urges he can't quite express or understand.....
Fairly decent cartoons two days in a row? He's on a roll! Have to see what he does with the Brown election in Mass.
Officials found out that the air traveler traveled in Europe.This information is frantically being suppressed as we are NUMBER 1!!!! in TEH WORLD!.Seriously, this whining about airlines? I can't relate with my last few flights.
exanonymous: I'm sure it's because flight attendants (or "stews," as he probably still calls them) have a tendency to cut him off once he's blitzed enough to insist on strip-searching anyone on the plane browner than Jim Gaffigan.
"Have to see what he does with the Brown election in Mass."Perhaps you mean "...what he does with the Brown election in March." You can't just rush into topical humor, you know. You have to let things ripen and ferment, then distill them into a heady brew, which you surreptitiously guzzle in the bathroom before you go downstairs to work.
NTA's Not-Too-Far-Out-On-A-Limb Predictions:(1) Bruce Tinsley will jump on the error regarding the precise year that polar ice caps are predicted to be gone, and twist it into the assertion that it's not going to happen at all and that MANMADERS ARE PART OF A CONSPE CONSPIRO CONSPISS A PLOT. TO DESTORY MERIKA WOOOOOO(2) Similarly, Tinsley will ignore history to revel in the Brown election as TEH BEGININ OF TEH END OF THESE DARK DARK DAYS OF BLAKNESS AND A RETURN TO A TROOLY WHITE HOUSE RAAAAAA BUT I NOT RACIST
I took an airline trip a while ago and went through a full body scanner. They were actually pretty nice about it overall. Professional but courteous. What makes profiling ridiculous is that while the last terrorist attack was a muslim extremist the next one could be a drunken paranoid redneck Unabomber type. Would Tinsley still support profiling if they focused on drunken paranoid rednecks? I don't think so.
