Those damned Fries

What's Mallard raving about today?

The FDA, Fast Food.

The rate of smoking in the United States has decreased from 42.4% (in 1965) to 20.8% (in 2007).

Mallard Fillmore longs for those halcyon days when almost half the population was giving themselves cancer.

Mallard believes in a man's right to destroy his own body, as long as it makes the rich richer.

God, you are a stupid little monkey, aren't you Tins?

What about diseased livers, Tinshley?

The biggest problem with the conservative's used of stupidity as a sign of peer-group solidarity is that natural selection works slowly.

If ya know what I mean...

Anyone know if Tinsh smokes? He strikes me as the sort of deep thinker who would equate stinkily enriching tobacco companies with Rugged Individualism.

I get it, but unless you're an overweight tobacco use (is Tinsley, I wonder), I don't think you'd find today's strip funny.

Well, you know, Mallard, there's a simple solution to this (nonexistent) problem: Order your french fries in a fancy-shmancy gourmet restaurant, where they're called "pommes frites", and where you can wash them down with a $2,000 bottle of wine. You know, like your idol Rush Limbaugh would do. With the insanely high prices, a "400 percent french fry tax" would barely register (assuming that such an establishment would be required to charge said tax). And besides, since the fries would be served on a plate instead of in a cardboard box, you wouldn't have to be subjected to a picture of someone's bulbous backside.

Oh, what's that? You're not rich enough to dine at a fancy-shmancy gourmet restaurant? Well, then, clearly you're a lazy, shiftless, good-for-nothing leech on society, because if you weren't, then you'd be rich. Why don't you get a job, you worthless teat-sucker?

Tinsley: Sociopath said...

Following the theme established yesterday, which nicely fits this monstrous hate crime enormity Neo-Nazi pamphlet of a comic:

Tobacco, alcohol and fast food executives and drug dealers flood the world with poisonous shit, never considering the consequences, but they would consider Tinsley a sub-human demonic creature.

I hate fast food french fries. They are drowned in salt, they're limp and greasey, and they taste like damp cardboard.

They're already charging 400% for the crap they serve. And why put a picture of a big butt when statistically speaking, it's very likely there's an American in line ahead you of who is obese. Not overweight... obese.
