That damned Disclaimer

What's Mallard raving about today?

Television

One day after decrying minorities as lazy, TV-watching slobs, Mallard Fillmore (with no hint of irony) can be found sitting in front of his television, too lazy to change the channel.

Honestly, how does Mallard's head not explode?

Oh, but Mallard--through his butt-fingered, ass-hatted, and foaming-at-the-mouth racist creator--identifies with white maleness, which he confuses with all-American patriotic values (which he and his creator likewise do not understand in the least). ...Therefore, it's okay, and not hypocrisy at all!

Shorter version: IOKIYAR.

"Honestly, how does Mallard's head not explode?"

Because he's a literalization of the metaphor "If brains were dynamite, he couldn't blow his own nose."

Only Mallard Fillmore would prove his own stupidity without a hint of irony or self-awareness.

Previous comic:
It is not racist to think that minorities are stupid. This is based on the fact that they watch more television than normal, and television makes people stupid.

Current comic:
I watch lots of television.

Mallard's head doesn't explode because Bruce doesn't know how to draw an explosion.

When the syndicate delivers a Mallard Fillmore strip like this one, which has absolutely no political content in it, do newspapers still run it next to Doonesbury on the editorials page?

Because, containing a vacuum, it has much lower pressure than the atmosphere outside. If anything, it ought to implode.

SCIENCE!

Interesting choice of fap material, Mallard.

I took DavyK's comment as an invitation to combine yesterday's and today's MF into a single image of duckish self-loathing.

Thank you sir, for the inspiration, which also lead me to ponder on the interactive nature of comics now that we have the web.

Jokes about boiler plate dis-association announcements during late-night infomercials are HILARIOUS. What's next, airline food? Is nothing sacred to this god of observational humor from the 80s?!

As much as I sometimes feel the need to rail against this propagandist, I do get tired. Tired of watching an asshole, and awaiting the drop of a turd on a daily basis.
