What's Mallard raving about today?
A week of Casey Anthony, eh? Good thing there's nothing else majorly political and pressing going on in the news these days.
If poor civil, compassionate Batshit is trying to salve the butthurt of his frustrated TV-pundit-fueled lynch-mob mentality, he can always remind himself that at least "Arizona border vigilante" Shawna Forde is exactly where she belongs. (Racism is dead!)
Yyyyeah... because people who were arrested and put on trial for murdering their children are well known for their careers in movies and reality shows and video games...Meanwhile, back in reality, Casey Anthony is going to have to spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder. But in the alcohol-soaked world Brucie inhabits (as represented by today's strip), she's going to be able to while away her afternoons playing golf with O.J. Simpson while pondering the embarrassment of riches that is her smorgasbord of lucrative career options.
Usually this strip tells a "joke" by having speech bubbles emitting from/near the back of a TV set, OR from/near a glassy-eyed Howard the Duck knockoff clutching a sheaf of paper. I think it's a bit much to use both tropes in a single installment.I'd say it'd be for the best if NEITHER were used, but yesterday's caveman strip dispels that notion handily.
Somehow, the first panel reminded me more of all the media attention when someone else had resigned from her elected position.DW
I think the duck has morphed into a Rod Serling-like narrator of the hellish world his strip depicts. We'll just have a panel of imagined awfulness, followed by the duck staring at where he guesses our soul might be, saying "Yesss. AWFUL, isn't it? 57! 57! 57!"
Oh you silly duck,Conservative ideals where?Free market hater.
What a happy world it would be if the most important national controversy of our time were the free-speech rights of people found "not guilty" of a crime.
