That damned Mullet

What's Mallard raving about today?

Fish, Political Correctness.

BP is filling the Gulf of Mexico with oil, which makes it especially important to follow-up a discussion of nose hairs with a screed about political correctness after Mallard realized there's both a haircut and a fish called "Mullet".

Also, fish have hair, so this "joke" makes sense. Jeez you suck, Tinsley.

Dig through the stupid, and Batshit appears, by his very own words, to be mocking those who aren't amused by insults based on ethnicity. (...But he's not racist or anything! Right?)

However, there are so many levels of stupid that it's hard to tell what Batshit's intent may be. He might also be trying to depict responsible parents as gullible saps.

Who the hell can tell anymore? Planet Tinsley is its own little alien world, and I don't think the atmosphere has enough oxygen. The GOP machine's got to be wondering what sort of return they're getting on their investment here...

Man, this just reeks of "Why can't I call them orientals anymore?"

First things first: The page design looks fresh and open today. Nice change. There wasn't really anything wrong with the old one, but shaking things up a little without messing things up is a pleasant change of pace.

I'll guess that this is one of Tin's timeless strips that he keeps in a big pile by the blender for emergencies, and he's still reeling from the discovery that Joe Sestak failed to peg the Scandal-O-Meter.

Ah. Um.

Hmmm.

Is this a leftover from the George Allen "macaca" thing?

Tinshley's the sort of the guy who calls African-Americans "niggardly" because ho ho, it sounds like something else, and they're the real racists if they take offense.

Only he only does it in his mind, because he's afraid of what the darkies would do to him if he really tried. Maybe if he has some more liquid courage (and his liver doesn't just forcibly eject itself through his navel), he'll get up the gumption!

I think Tinsley has a different word for 'afro' and he doesn't know why people get angry when he uses it.

Haw haw, this fish (I assume these lumpy things are supposed to be fish) is opposed to racial slurs! What a hilarious proposition.

wavydavy said...

Ummm... huh? WTF? Ha? Haha?

Along with all the other idiocy pointed out by previous commenters, Ducky now wants us to believe that fish have "ethnicity"? Seriously?

Just when I think I have seen the stupidest thing ever, he tops himself.

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Roger is a human, and the fish is confusing ethnicity with species. Tinsley is saying that all minorities are monstrous inhuman creatures who should be covered with oil, because they are tar babies. This is like some sort of horrible propaganda cartoon from the Neo Nazis.

Word Verification: Egenti, an anagram of T.I. gene, or Too Idiotic gene, a perfect description of Tinsley's extraordinarily-inbred genes.

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Let me point out, purely coincidentally, that the 1940s are, technically, a relatively-new time.

It is a bleak, cold, angry existance under the Tinsley Sea, where parents berate children in an environment of heavy pressure, little light, and no joy.

Couldn't we spray him down with a little dispersant?

What the heck kinda freaky-ass mutant fish are these??

Oh, I just realized: Instead of looking up visual reference on fish, Brucie was just working from his memory of the fish in the aquarium at the bar where he did his "research" for the week.

WV: plidic: The sound that emerges when Brucie tries to blow a raspberry at Obama's image on the teevee.

Rootbeer said...

The most insightful Mallard Fillmore yet? And a topical reference to the BP oil spell to boot?

Morons will waste their time shouting about inconsequential nonsense like hairstyles and the tyranny of being asked not to be intentionally offensive, even while murky black death encroaches...
