What's Mallard raving about today?
1. Half-assed drawing2. Someone else's words3. ????4. SUNDAY STRIP!!(And like Davey said, tomorrow it's right back to DURR HURR LIBRULZ STOOPIT.)
At least he got the date right, instead of posting this 2 weeks from now. I was half expecting a Veteran's Day strip.
Shown here is Mallard Fillmore's ego, next to an object of comparable size.
Boy, how pissed off at Garry Trudeau do you suppose Brucie is right now? A week after he addresses the United States' love/hate relationship with brutal dictators in his usual inept, ham-handed, unfunny fashion, Trudeau does it today with intelligence, incisiveness, and (most importantly for a humor strip) humor.Poor Brucie. He done got schooled. Again.
I'm pretty sure Tinsley's managed to convince himself that he's at least as good as Trudeau, and probably better. Sure, it seems unbelievable that anyone could be so deluded, but let me ask you: how else could he stave off suicide? All he has is massive self-delusion. That, and lots and lots of booze.
What does a drawing of the planet have to do with Easter? Doesn't Tinsley know that only 1/3 of the planets inhabitants are Christian? That means that 2/3 of the planet doesn't give a shit about Easter eggs and bunnies. This goes back to the grandiose exceptionalism demonstrated by the right-wing lunatics.Either that or Tinsley's just a drunken idiot. I would've accepted either answer.wv:mulagon, I'll use it in a sentence. "Tinsley should've used a mulagon and drawn a better "comic" since it's Sunday."
Darn, Tog beat me to it. Not verbatim, I was just going to say something like, "Clip art and a quick stab in Bartlett's Quotations make a Sunday strip!" In short, I was going to crap out a comment just like Tin-Eye crapped out today's strip. Oh well, good intentions. Still having a drinky.
The quote is dreadful hackery. C. S. Lewis was a skilled linguist, but his theology (as exemplified by today's quote) is based on using a storm of words to cover up a very sick, sick notion of God. Actual followers of Jesus didn't proclaim, as Lewis does, that their pains show how God loves us. To the contrary, "There was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell them and bring the proceeds of the sales and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need" - Acts 4:34
Leave it to Mallard Fillmore to observe Easter with the words of an author whose mastery of rhetoric was such that he had a logical fallacy named after him ("Lewis' Trilemma").
Just wanna note @rootbeer said what I wanted to say, only shorter and funnier. Thanks! Can you draw a duck without pants?
