That damned Shock

What's Mallard raving about today?

Stuff that could kill you.

Mallard wins the bet on how many times he could cram the phrase "kill you" into a single strip.

Honestly, has Mallard given up all pretense to making sense?

Let's see: a Federal department that keeps me informed about dangers to my safety and well-being, versus a Federal department that lets me find out the hard way that there's lead in my housepaint, arsenic in my drinking water, e-coli in my food, or changes in the atmosphere that could cause me cancer.

Hmm.

Well, I may not agree with Tinsley's "ignorant stupidity is bliss" philosophy, but either one would be preferable to the Cheney/Rove maladministration's Office of Deliberate Public Disinformation...

Is he in the Star Trek transporter room? Beam the duck out to space, Scottie, I beg of you!

A one-liner as the text of the Sunday long-form comic is just lazy.

Also: boring!

Between the airport strips and this one, it seems that Bruce wants to get rid of the Department of Homeland Security.

Luckily, in addition to DHS, W. also gifted us with Carnivore -- which, we hope, will pick up the repetition of the phrase "kill you" in today's strip and alert agents to Indiana...

So Mallard finally comes out against Fox News? Good for him.

Things that could possibly kill you.

Like drunk driving.

This is what we get when Brucie takes a break from his "research".

WV: Comis: Like comics, but not quite. (e.g., Bruce Tinsley's Mallard Fillmore comis often make no sense.)

Those damn Federal departments of trying to keep people safe. Don't they know that the only good use of a government agency is killing people or denying global warming?

"Things that could possibly kill you" is a good one, because it could possibly kill Tinsley to get off his ass for ten minutes and do some actual research (in the non-alcoholic sense).

I love how it isn't the FOX media sensationalizing everything to blame, it's the GOVERNMENT!

The government issues warnings that it has been confirmed, for example, that a few cribs have design flaws that have been confirmed to kill almost a dozen babies. The company is advised, and does a recall of the millions sold, at which point it also informs people of the dangers. So people are pretty much calm and rational up to this point and at no point is the Big Gubbmint screaming fire in a packed theater.
