That damned Book

What's Mallard raving about today?

America, Tell-All Books.

Mallard wishes he were important enough to be the subject of a sleazy tell-all book.

Well, he IS sleazy...

And of course, this is coming from Bruce Tinsley, who milks every scandal involving a liberal politician or a black athlete for every drop he can get.

You know damned well he has a whole bookshelf filled with sleazy tell-all books, pages all dog-eared and sticky.

I agree!

I mean, look at some of these bestsellers like "Going Rogue", now there's a sleazy cheap hit.

So many conservative authors go out of their way to reveal critics as evil and martyr themselves that you'd think the Sleazy Sue got boring, but people still buy that junk.

Ooooooooooh....

Can it really be true? Tinsley taking a swipe at "Going Rogue"!!

Who could have imagined?

Tinshley's book would really just be a collection of police reports, maybe accentuated with a few of the more telling Mallard strips.

Mallard's immune from a sleazy tell-all, because there's nothing to tell. No character development, no character interaction to speak of, no personality. Just a duck and a TV set. It would take one page, and you could sell ads on the back.

If success means people write a tell-all book about you, what does it mean when you only rate mockery on the internet?

That's a good column, rewinn, only where's that guy get off dissing Tom Tomorrow?

La Cucaracha I'm not so impressed with - Its premise seems to be, "Trading in dumb, insulting stereotypes of Latinos is funny as long as it's a Latino doing it."

And if he's going to slam lame political strips, where's Prick City?

But Tom Tomorrow kicks ass.

How much could a tell-all book, possibly, tell us about Tinsley? His drunk driving is common knowledge, he has, throughout this comic, exposed his extreme racism, unprecedentedly-delusional psyche, sociopathy, and complete inability to accept anything that does not fit his incredibly narrow view of the world--i.e, anyone who not a White Southern American Premillenial Dispensationalist extremist Conservative Republican who hates everyone else is evil. I think we can interpret from these facts that he, literally, bashes blacks and gays, so I do not think anything else can be said.

Word Verification: Angange, a particularly horrible form of gangrene that is better than read Mallard Fillmore.

This Modern World can be overly didactic sometimes, but it has more than its share of really great moments, and even if you you generally don't care for it, to go so far as to call it a "disgrace?" That's just absurd.

rewinn said...

I must agree - http://thismodernworld.com/newest-comic/ is brilliant and funny.

I thought Tom Tomorrow was pretentious, the first time I read his strip. That was years and years ago. Now I'm amazed at how he puts his finger directly on the nexus of inanity -- more often from the right, but he's nailed the left as well, mostly for not having spines.
