Those damned Cheetos

What's Mallard raving about today?

Michelle Obama, Obesity, President Obama, The Budget, Cheetos

Michelle Obama is not the one who says we are Obese, Mallard. Scientific studies show that more Americans than ever are obese. Michelle Obama is trying to address that epedemic, not accuse you personally of being a fat ass. Now, I know, I know...Science...amiright?

But lying and saying the First Lady is accusing everyone in American of being obese, as if it were some personal affront to you, shows a distinct lack of anything one would call "Accuracy." And yes, I know, I know...Accuracy...amiright?

As for your budget reference: what?

Considering that Tinsley himself has done his share of strips complaining about the fatness of Kids Today and Americans in general, this is doubly mendacious.

Once again, I can't help but wonder if this sensitivity is because a certain hack cartoonist's mugshot might be featuring a great deal more ... mug, lately. "Research" can have a lot of calories, after all.

On the other hand, this could just be because there's darkies in the White House, and that enough to give a right-wing bigot the shakes. Well, give him more shakes.

Almost, sort of, kinda good today!

Frank Stone said...

If by "almost, sort of, kinda" you mean "not in any way".

"Michelle Obama says we're obese..."

Wow -- a sweeping generalization that's also a lie. I guess that's Brucie's idea of multitasking.

You can have my Cheetos when you pry them from my cold dead hands... er, wings... er, talons... er...

Forgive the correct use of the 3-dot ellipsis. I just couldn't help myself (i.e., turn myself into a moronic waterfowl).

You end obesity with diet and exercise.

You end deficits with spending cuts and tax hikes.

Mallard never takes exercise for the same reason he doesn't want government to have taxes. And the result is the same.

What really frosts me is when the Obamas say alcohol is just empty calories. Sweet, sweet alcohol.

Well, Batshit's kinda in a corner. After all, he can't keep carping about Obama's poll numbers (since they've improved and stabilized, and that doesn't fit his narrative) and Republicans and Democrats alike are divided to pants-pooping extremes over Libya (so he's hasn't yet been instructed on his own position). And it's still too soon to attack Obama's children. So that leaves the wife.

And you know that the only thing that pisses Batshit off more than a black man that doesn't know his place is an uppity black woman.

The part I don't get: Obama's budget? I thought cutting back in budgets was a really big deal with you neocon yo-yos. Except when a Republican's in the White House, of course.

Also: Isn't that a Bugle rather than a Cheeto? Maybe I'll write Frito-Lay and ask.

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Tinsley's hypocrisy shines like a huge beacon today: He wants government to give everyone what he wants, no matter what, but when the government tries to help, he becomes vindictive.

I found a candidate whom I am told is incompetent, but seems like the epitome of brilliance and sanity compared to Tinsley: L. Lee Mercer, Jr! Tinsley needs to learn from the far superior insight provided by this man!

Also, usual comment about how much Tinsley hates and misunderstands science, his racism, his sociopathy, his Narcissism, all as usual today.

This makes 2 strips in 3 days that have made no sense--wait, make that "made negative sense," as the longer you think about what he could possibly mean just makes them harder to understand. It's like he's sending coded messages to the Alien Reptoids.

"Great Commander Zlarg! The human mole has made--THE CHEETO REFERENCE!"
"Excellent! All ships, we invade at once! The human species has clearly become too stupid to resist us, we of the Dread Planet Teapartia!"

WV: idabbitr; a word that makes as much sense as this strip.

DiR said...

I'm lost.

Yes, Tins was paid for this.

I dick suck coffee.

It's a shame that Cheeto is probably killed off after this strip, otherwise we might have had a character to rival Sheaf of Paper's popularity.

(Pasted in from yesterday's):

I think you should increase your Chee-to intake, Mallard, just to show them. And if it means you die of heart disease sooner, well, so be it! Stay the couch, duck!

Michelle Obama doesn't say we're obese:

Studies say America is one of the fattest nations.

Maybe that wouldn't be true if we actually owned up to it and started helping people? We're a nation where raw ingredients are more expensive than triple-processed TV dinners, which is crazy when you really think about it.
