Those damned Résumés

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Senate.

This is one of those days where Mallard goes for a ratio more in favor of humor than partisan hackery.

And fails just as badly as always.

Proving that the one thing he's fundamentally incapable of is quality work.

Suppose for a moment that what Batshit does for a living represented an actual job. Who do you suppose he'd list on his resume?

Evolution-denying ape-man Glenn Beck?

If there were any justice in this world, Tinsley and the Marmaduke guy would be having the same conversation.

I'll take your word for it that this is an attempt at humor. I just see GOP chestbeating bluster that all the incumbents — the Democratic ones, no doubt — are going DOWN. It's like when somebody in All-Star Wrestling comes to the interview with a trike and announces that it's for his opponent to ride back to Poland on after he whups his behind in the ring. (You can tell I come from a gentler time. Be patient with an old man.)

Get it? Because if all the Tea Partiers out there believe hard enough, there will be a purging of all the bad members of Congress, and we will enter the New Reign of Conservative Prosperity!

Nevermind that only about 10% of voting members of the Senate and House are likely to be ousted from their seats this November.

Why would you need a resume at all, when you can simply push a law through Congress that enriches an industry, and then get a multi-million dollar job with that industry?

For example, Billy Tauzin

Ha ha! It's funny 'cause it's dumb and unfunny!

It shouldn't take longer to figure out what a comic strip's about than it takes to write and draw it.

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

This seems like an innocuous comic, but after all those comics complaining about foreigners, independent thinkers, Socialists, Muslims, and charities that Tinsley has printed in the last few weeks, and written in the last seven months, this is how the comic looks in my mind:

A train full of demonic creatures with long hair, odd skullcaps, and piles of gold goes to a suspicious-looking gated community. This community is filled with roses, sunshine, and oddly-large ovens filled with sweet treats. It is marked AuschBuchen FreudenGroBesGrundstucks. One creature is saying, "Mein anmelen Lebenslauf, danke schoen." Caption: Ubermenschen scheiBen befordernd Juden raus (Juden raus jenseit von bose.)

I know the translation is, probably, terrible, but it cannot be any worse than Tinsley's usual English grammar. I do not want to violate Godwin's law, but Tinsley has been edging dangerously close to Nazi cartoons these days.

Word Verification: Acktun, a mistranslation of achtung, one of Tinsley's favorite words.
