That damned cure

What's Mallard raving about today?

NCAA Basketball, Olympics, Oscars.

A cure for the Winter Olympics and the Oscars? I can't even begin to guess what that is supposed to mean.

Assuming that it must mean Mallard hates the Winter Olympics (unmanly sports?) and the Oscars (Hollywood-types!), may I suggest that the "cure" is to turn off the TV?

On the plus side, I would expect to see this one in next year's Golden Ellipses for Most Mystifying Panel (otherwise know as the Golden Flash).

Guess Tinsley didn't get his memo in time. That's the problem with doing a daily strip that exists to regurgitate RNC propaganda; when he doesn't get his orders, Tinsley has no clue what to do.

It used to be that Tinsley could quickly jerk off a strip about PFFFT HEALTHY FOOD IS STOOPID or HAW HAW CLINTON SEX HAW HAW or YAY I AM FILTHY YAAAAAAY or even one where Mallard just claims to be "independent" (...and you say he doesn't tell actual jokes!) but these days he's completely lost without someone above him leading him around by the nose.

Bruce's statehood is showing. The religion of Indiana is basketball, led by the messiah Bobby Knight (he who can do no wrong even while throwing chairs, and who will return once again to lead his faithful followers to college basketball victory and beer). But it's a welcome relief if an idiotic joke from the usual "libruls" *smirk* .

The strip could address more pressing issues but that would make it more relevant and less partisan hackery since there aren't new talking points yet. For instance, I seem to recall something like 200,000 people on the mall protesting something... wonder what that was all about.

Wait, I thought Republicans were supposed to be all patriotic and stuff?!?! Didn't Brucie get a massive hard-on every time America won a gold medal during the Winter Olympics? No?

Why does Bruce Tinsley hate America?

So it's pretty clear that Tin's fax machine was out of commission three weeks ago. We'll find out how long when the strips suddenly return to their usual retro-relevance.

Uh, whose face is in his crotch saying that?

dlauthor said...

But, Bruce! You should love the Winter Olympics! It's the one that hardly has any brown people!

Or are you still crying about how the gold-medal hockey game turned out? Poor iddums, did the mean socialist country make you sad?

Colleges are a failure. They dumb down their curriculum and produce a lower quality graduate then ever before.
Oh boy! Time for my favorite thing that drains millions of dollars and discourages higher thinking in favor of physical prowess! WOOOOOO! Let's complain about the college bowl systems some more, because that's SO FUCKING IMPORTANT!!!

Wow, the guy in this strip is one big tub of goo. Is the lower half of his body engulfing some piece of furniture? He appears to extend off the bottom of the panel, further expanding in a Jabba the Hut type fashion.

So I say, right on Tinsley. Obesity and overindulgence in television viewing and other sedentary "activities" are actually public health crises. Good for you for skewering the entitled American attitude and lambasting this pig at the trough!

My brother thought that TV was a wheelchair.

I don't really have much to say on sports or Oscars.

This would be mystifyingly bad, except that why it's so bad is not a mystery.

On the plus side, someone just told me about a new name for our domestic violent fundy wackos:

Share It and Enjoy!

I thought it meant that since the Olympics and movie/tv award season is over, there's nothing to zone out in front of right now. Enter NCAA!

(I'm in denial about their existence, they only exist when Memphis is in and with Coach Cal in this year!!!, GRR.)
