That damned Family

What's Mallard raving about today?

The British Royal family.

Newspapers paid money for this. King Features paid money for this.

Seriously.

Yeah, things like this are why I think Tinsley HAS to realize, somewhere in his worm-ridden soul, the existential worthlessness of his entire "creative" endeavor. I'd pity him if he weren't so consistently vile.

Not only is he talking about the British royal family which he doesn't normally talk about even when they do newsworthy things, he is stating that there is nothing to talk to about.

So, nothing to see here, move along, cough*drillbabydrill*cough. Oops, sorry, something in my throat. What's that over there you ask? Well, we've been giving the pelicans in the Gulf region free beauty oil masks.

Remember when the British Royal Family launched a war against a country that didn't threaten them?

Somehow, I prefer the British ridiculous Royals to our American homicidal Royals.

What the hell is this about? Fergie? Is she even "royal" anymore? When did that "sting" happen? And who the hell cared/cares? Besides Batshit, I mean. Dude, wake up.

King Features paid money for this. There's your 'royal' screwup right there.

Really? You can't think of ANYTHING going on in the last TWO MONTHS to write about? Are you goddamn fucking serious?

VW: eamyxio: Rush's next designer drug?

I assume he's referring to the recent-ish tabloid scandal involving Sarah, Duchess of York, who hasn't been a member of the Royal Family since before President Clinton's second term was decided, and had been separated from Prince Andrew as far back as when Bush 41 was still considered a lock for re-election?

"In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead." <-- SAME JOKE, ONLY FUNNY, AND THIRTY YEARS STALE.

Maybe Tinsley is resting up his little grey cells so he can eventually pen a definitive defense for Israel gunning down unarmed civilians in international waters. All part of combating all those elusive "terrorists" the neocons see everywhere.

I'm confused....did Bruchie just come out of the drunken stupor he's been in for almost 20 years and think it's still 1991?? Or, has he just hit a new low??

Hey, if this is what sells, then I think it's time for me to introduce my awesome new comic strip, The Things that Didn't Happen Today Report. Every day, a guy sits behind a desk and notes something that didn't happen today. Take a look:

"In other news, no Republican congressman was caught in an affair today. More on this as it develops."

"In other news, Arizona did nothing today to cement it's status as 'most racist state in the union.' More on this as it develops."

"In other news, BP officials did not cravenly try to deflect blame for their crimes today. More on this as it develops."

"In other news, the Israeli government did not take action to make Palestinians' lives worse today. More on this as it develops."

"In other news, teabaggers did not wave around any racist, semi-literate signs today. More on this as it develops."

"In other news, right-wing editorial cartoonists did not willfully pretend to not understand the difference between 'weather' and 'climate' today. More on this as it develops."

"In other news, no anti-gay activist was photographed with a male escort today. More on this as it develops."

"In other news, Bruce Tinsley did not further demonstrate what a worthless, drunken hack he is today. More on this as it develops."

(Admittedly, we may never actually be able to run that last one.)

Come on, syndicates! You know you want to get in on the ground floor here!
