That damned Resource

What's Mallard Fillmore raving about today?

Renewable resources, Holiday specials.

Aaaaaaand we're back to moaning about TV, as if there were no options available to Mallard Fillmore to avoid it.

In truth, Mallard Fillmore appears to be acting out his own version of A Christmas Carol. One guess as to which role he's taken on personally.

Wild guess: he's trying to do Scrooge--but he thinks it's The Ghost of Christmas Present, the benevolent lecturer warning us all to beware ignorance.

In reality, he's playing Bob Marley: forever moaning helplessly in the morass of ill will he has created for himself.

Wouldn't be easier to develop cars that run on god-awful Mallard Fillmore strips? That's a year-round available resource.

deepbeep said...

How long until seattlepi.com removes /fun/ from the URL? That's clearly miscategorized.

Tog, I assume you mean Jacob Marley... :)

Tog said...

@deepbeep: Oh, crap! Ha ha ha! Yes, I meant Jacob. Jacob Cratchit. Wait a minute, I think that's wrong, too...

Tinsely is really a miserbale peice of shit isn't he?


On Scrooge; He eventually saw the errors of his way and made the peoples live much better, tinsely on the other hand, On christmas,Will silently sip his eggnog rum minus the eggnog and murmur humbug before drifting off into a stupor.

All right! Teevee is teh sux0r!

What does the duck have with him on his viewing blob, a can of spray cheeze?

Some woman from Lifetime TV? C'mon, you know should say Tori Spelling or Meredith Baxter-Birney, but doesn't really know how to sell a joke.

So I'm assuming Mallard isn't one of the "renewable resources folks" which clearly places him in the "let's shit away all our resources until our planet is choking to death from its own toxic waste" camp. Why am I not surprised?

exanonymous said...

Ah, but heart-warming holiday specials are only during the holidays. If the experts truly want renewable energy, they'll use the hot air from Rush Limbaugh, the fairy dust from Glenn Beck, the empty space between Palin's ears, and the bitterness from Mallard Fillmore.

Rootbeer said...

Mallard Fillmore is just bitter because HE'LL never star in an animated TV holiday special, like characters from Peanuts, the Family Circus, Garfield, Bloom County, and Ziggy have.

That caption in the last panel just gets worse and worse as it goes on, doesn't it?

Bill the Splut said...

Bob Marley would look at this strip and say, "Pass the douchey on the Right!'

Oh wait, that was Musical Youth...

dlauthor said...

Oh dear God, there's a Ziggy Christmas Special? Well, I guess he's cornered the pantsless-unfunny-blob market, so the only way for Mallard to go is A Very Racist Christmas.

I can see it now: Mallard lurking by the manger, whining that the Magi should be detained because they're brown, then realizing that the baby Jesus and his family are Jews and skulking away to drink himself to death.

Which, of course, would be the MERRIEST CHRISTMAS EVER.

ajm said...

Well, Mallard, once every so often really crappy programs dominate the airwaves. That's the free market for ya.

Kip W said...

If the duck showed an erg or two more energy, he could be Scratchit.

So let's just be grateful he'd rather just gripe that it itches.

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Note: If anyone else complains about Christmas specials, Tinsley will call him a Nazi Communist, and tell him to go back to Russian Arabian Jewish Africa.

the funnyest part of today's "comic" is that it's rated at 4 stars with 39 votes.

That means that 10 people gave it a 1 and 30 gave it a 5. Can there be 30 people on this planet who thinks it is actually good? I've heard of reichwing associations that screwed up digg bigtime; can they be branching out to comix?

Is Bristol still on So You Think You Can Dance? Finding twenty-nine goobers (you know Batshit himself votes a "5" every day, take THAT Trudeau) who find MF a genuinely dire warning of impending liberal doom is a relative snap.
