That damned Problem

What's Mallard raving about today?

Obesity, Starvation.

Mallard Fillmore finds the silver lining ins Childhood Obesity.

"Childhood obesity? That's what makes MERIKA NUBBER WUN!!"

I especially like the phony sympathy for starving children--which of course will vanish like a fart in hurricane whenever the discussion switches to poverty in America*. I swear to God, you couldn't make up a character like Bruce Tinsley. You would simply find it too implausibly vile and nasty.

And why is he on about this at all? Oh, right--thet dang darkie's woman is agin' it, so Tinsley's a'fore it. But no, I don't think it's actually racism this time; Tinsley would be just as pro-child-obesity if a white Democrat's spouse were campaigning against it.

Welcome to Mallard's America, where all the men are ignorant, all the women are submissive, and all the kids are overweight. AND WE LIKE IT.

"Most of the world"? Really?

FAO estimates that "only" 925 million people in the world are undernourished.

"Most of the world" doesn't mean less than fifteen percent of it.

But then, most of the world doesn't feed their children chicken nuggets, french fries with ketchup, and Coca-cola on a regular basis.

I believe that's going to be our new national motto: "USA: Still better than Burkina Faso".

So we shouldn't whine about being fat?

But he has whined about kids today being too fat.

And isn't malnutrition a bigger issue? You can be fat and still be malnourished.

What the fuck is he talking about?

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Tinsley is laughing at the thought of massive starvation, and hoping that if the economy fails badly enough, it can happen in America and Europe. He enjoys the combination of obesity and increasing starvation because it means slower, more painful deaths.

Word Verification: Dopacc, Tinsley is trying to inflict upon the entire world a Death, Obliteration pacc--he cannot spell.

Actually, China's avoiding the risk of childhood obesity by selling its children into the Shenzhon Special Economic Zone, where they labor like programmable machine tools until they break down and are discarded.
That hasn't happened here yet because the remnants of the labor movement have slowed the decline, but it's kinda funny to hear Mallard's indirect (and doubtless unintentional) support of unionization.

ITALIAN TENNIS SHOES! Yes, that's right! Italian tennis shoes are more entertaining than this drek. I think everybody took today off to go look at pictures of ITALIAN TENNIS SHOES!
