What's Mallard raving about today?

Taxes, President Obama

Wow, he's really doing this?

During the Bush Administration, I had to deal with the IRS regarding 3 consecutive years also. Does that prove something?

In fact, it does. It proves that Mallard is a raving lunatic and an idiot to boot.

Someone already said it best: Post hoc ergo propter hoc.

Oh my God.

"It's been three years in a row now, but I've never brought it up until now because I'M SUCH A SWELL GUY. Also, I'M TOTALLY NOT MAKING THIS UP SO QUIT SAYING THAT SHUT UP SHUT UP."

When a wrong-wing pundit clings furiously to complete and utter horseshit in the face of cold, hard, liberally-biased reality, it is called "doubling down" and I guess Batshit felt left out.

Or unnoticed.

Also: "Every time I prove them wrong?" You've got to be kidding me. Regulars here know that whenever Batshit thinks he's "proving someone wrong," he's using math, logic, or sources that don't mean what he thinks. Not even close.

Also also: Is the local-police conspiracy theory still on Batshit's Wiki page? EVERYONE's out to get him! It's only because of his superior intellect and reflexes that he (and Linda Tripp) have survived!

Good God, Tinsley--you imagine that the President or anyone in the government at any level gives a shit about your incoherent, drunken excretions? These are surely your most embarrassing comics yet, which is really saying something. Here's hoping you go on like this for weeks and weeks so everyone can see what a pathetic, paranoid drunk you are.

Since President Obama has been in the White House, I've had a root canal and a hernia operation.*

* I'm not making this up.**

** These are all unrelated events.

"You're just after me because of Mallard Fillmore!"

IRS Agent: "Who is this Dillmore again? Is he the one who you said was tapping your phone or the one your wife is talking to behind your back on Facebook? You keep rambling..."

Bruce Tinsley was a perfectly normal person in every way. Except in as much as he was convinced that he was being watched by a giant hedgehog whom he referred to as Spiny Norman.

Wow! I had thought that only Republicans like Nixon did that sort of thing. What's next? Is the FBI going to start a file and spy on Tinsley?

The "I'm not making this up - Bruce" line was and is a classic phrase which should be enshrined forever on the duck's plaque in the Crappy Comic Hall of Fame.

Narcissisitic Personality Disorder is a mental disorder, characterized in DSM-IV by "A pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), need for admiration, and lack of empathy."

Just thought I'd mention that, even though it's not clear whether that medical tome only applies to human beings, or the horrible Giger-esque tri-lipped pencil-vomiting rictus that the artist depicts himself as.

The punchline seems to be that it's a bad thing for the IRS to audit businesses because audits require labor to conduct.

The answer, of course, is to tax purely on the honor system. Don't audit!!! the IRS cut back audits of business starting around 2002 ... hey how did that work?


On the plus side: see ASTROTURF WARS!

Oh, I'm sure you're not making it up, Brucie. I'm just not delusional enough to believe that Obama is personally responsible for your IRS woes because he's so outraged at and/or threatened by you. See, in the real world, Obama doesn't know or care who you are.

I know that hurt, but no more so than having to watch a slow-motion psychological train wreck like the one you're publicizing on the funny page every day.

Bill the Splut said...

...He's been chased down for back taxes 3 different years in the 2 years Obama's been president?

I guess that they could've lumped, say, 2004-2006 all together or something. Given Boozie's shrieking about having to pay any taxes, I don't have a problem picturing him cheating on his 1040.

WV: cilia; what a paramecium has more talent in than Bruce has in his entire body.

Tinsley's like the mouse in the story that decided to rape an elephant. A coconut hits the elephant on the head and it grunts, and the mouse snickers, "Suffer, baby, suffer!"

DiR said...

Whoa now, sally.
Three different years, you say?
So they harassed you in 2009, for your 2008 filings?
When Bush was President?
So you're suggesting that an incoming administration had nothing better to do then rebuild the entirety of the IRS, to allow them to go after the Sally Forth of right wing comic strips?

I thought most people grew out of trying to sit at the cool kid's table when they reached High School.

Perhaps if you didn't submit scrawled bar napkins as your W-2s, Bruce ...

I can't blame the IRS agents for reading his cartoons and being incredulous that anyone would pay money for them.
