That damned Age

What's Mallard raving about today?

Kids, Santa

I keep thinking this can't get any worse. And I'm always wrong about that.

Mallard is a joyless spite-filled waterfowl.

Bruce has a thing about nose hairs.

Santa must be a plugger. I hear they have nose hairs.

Yeah, kids sure do suck, don't they, Bruce? And hey, no surprise that it's the mom who does everything with the little guy while dad sits there passively and gets occasional reports.

WV: ectorear lit., "out of one's ass." See Fillmore, Mallard.

Check out that look of abject terror the kid in Santa's lap is wearing. What eldritch horrors lie inside the Hellgate that is Santa's schnoz? A tiny little Mallard, maybe?

What a sad, joyless world is "Mallard Fillmore"!

A small child blurting out something about Santa's snot would make any normal parent laugh, but in today's "comic" we're supposed to empathize with the humorlessness of the victimized mommy. This is yet another "Mallard Fillmore" that will never grace a t-shirt.

Wooo.... I'm sure Bruce Tinsley will atone for all this sourness on Christmas Day by drawing a crude sketch of a manger and surrounding it with four and a half lines of elided Biblical verse....

WTF? This makes no sense to me. I don't get it.
Brucie - why don't you go back to the "It's not fair that billionaires have to pay taxes" schtick. It's better to appear stupid and misinformed than it is to appear brain dead.

Unlike Bruce, other comic strips started mentioning Xmas just this week, rather than the day after Thanksgiving. Is he going to spend the week after the 25th bitching about returning the gifts he didn't like, then whining about how the cops are everywhere on that most sacred of drunk-driving holidays, New Year's Eve? Maybe he'll then start preemptively complaining about what the Bunny may leave in his Easter basket.

I've worked in retail all my adult life, and even I don't hate Holidaymas as much as Mallard does!

WV: phory; a whore who's a phony pundit, propping up right-wing billionaires like Moon and Murdoch. Does that ring any jingle bells, Bruce?

I'm just going to back the fuck away from this one, slowly.

That's the same little boy from the infamous "dust angels" strip, isn't it? For the sake of the community at large, I hope he's as forthcoming about Mallard.
