That damned riot

What's Mallard raving about today?

Riots, The Media.

I'm lost.

Is Mallard, who believes brown skin is justification for strip searches because you might be a terrorist, now castigating the media for a lack of national specificity regarding riots in the Middle East?

Is this some oblique reference to Wisconsin?

Or is this a reference to the Fox Propaganda Network showing video of a rally in California and lying about it being from Wisconsin?

Davey's already mentioned the WISCONSIN GOT PALM TREES?!?!? video, which is the only thing that makes today's strip funny or politically insightful.

As usual, completely unintentionally so.

We don't have a drawing of a splayed crotch duck reclining on a sack of flour, watching a television made out of HVAC parts today, so here's a drawing of a splayed crotch duck reclining on a sack of flour, watching a television made out of HVAC parts on some other day.

Instead of running the same picture of the duck all the time with different words in the balloon, I think they should run it with a blank balloon for a while. Anybody who actually notices could use the space for something funny, or relevant, or maybe a grocery list.

Tinshley defends the brown-people countries as not all being the same, and we should recognize WAIT BROWN PEOPLE DID SOMETHING BAD TO US LET'S BOMB THEM INDISCRIMINATELY

I don't think this is actually meant as a "media joke," and I sure as hell don't think he's trying to defend Middle Easterners here: I'm pretty sure the "joke" is ha ha, those a-rabs--we may not have footage of THIS rally, but we have another rally just like it, 'cause they're always rioting like the filthy savages they are! LOL!

In case you're not looking at older comments, e.g. Golden Ellipses archive source. 2000 here means the 2000s through 2011

Fox News lying about footage or poll results? I can't even fathom to wrap my head around them doing such a thing.

I think this is just a generic, "angry muslims are always rioting" strip.
Meh. Must be nice to be this bad at your job, but know you won't be fired.

"I don't have an original drawing of a duck today, so here's an drawing of a similiar duck."

But for sure, this is *definitely* the most unintentionally funny Mallard Fillmore in a while, considering that it must have been drawn shortly before Fox's fake Madison vilence video affair.
