That damned Joke

What's Mallard raving about today?


Of course, the only possible joke in 4 years of reading Mallard Fillmore is not shared with the reader.

And, instead of admitting where he's kept his head for the past 4 years, Mallard chooses to talk about something else that is up his ass.

Mallard's about to get a tax increase?


What's your tax bracket, duck?

I guess SKEERY BLARCK MAN GONE KILL YO GRANMAMA has given way to SKEERY BLARCK MAN GONE RAIZE YO TACKS. (Never mind reality, of course, what with its liberal bias and all.)

Comic won't load for me, but I'm going to take a guess at how it's going to go, based only on the comments so far.

Panel 1: Ducks is in a doc office, in a tweed jacket, natch. He is bent over a vaguely exam-bed-shaped object. Doctor behind him with probe says, "this might be slightly uncomfortable"

Panel 2: "Will it be as bad as my massive tax hike thanks to Obama?"

How's that? In the ballpark at all?

If Tinsley's strip is a ballpark, let's say Yankee Stadium, that would be in Long Island Sound.

ie A home run, across several dozen blocks, and into Long Island Sound.

See, my metaphor is kind of relevant, unlike Brewster's simile.

The one drawback to Tin's cushy job is that he has to get several colonoscopies a year. It's where his facts come from.

Who the hell thinks tax increases are funny? Can Mallard find one single example? No? As usual this "comic" makes absolutely no sense.

It's not the health of your colon you should be worried about Tinshley. What should trouble you is that grey, pillow-sized thing that used to be your liver. Also, the runny custard that occupies your skull.

Grump grump grump grump grump grump.

Conservativism has become such a sad, cheerless state.

P.S. today's "comic" fails as an "unintentional revelation" only because Tinshly intended to announce to the world that he's getting a colonoscopy.

Too much information!

I suppose we can take some small comfort from the fact that this strip probably made some kind of sense to Brucie at the time he scribbled it.

On the other hand, whoever has "ass cancer" in the What Will Eventually Kill Bruce Tinsley pool has to be paying closer attention now.

Great. Just great. Now the several times a week in this strip I see a duck crotch pointing at me, I'll be thinking of a camera being jammed up there.

Be careful cutting off any ugly and malignant growths you find up his ass, doctor, one of them's his frontal lobe!
