That damned Cat

What's Mallard raving about today?

Cats, Holidays, Reindeer

So, apparently, Mallard Fillmore is going to complain about animals dressed as reindeer until Christmas.

This is a metaphor for the Modern Republican party, however.

  • Elevating fake cultural trends to emergency status to rile up supporters and make them easy to manipulate
  • Intolerant to the point of biliousness over anything with which they do not agree
  • Joyless
  • Filibustering everything (including the days leading up to Christmas)
  • Obsessed with reindeer
I may have made that last one up.

Another metaphor for the current GOP: When you've gotten yourself stuck in a rut and you're looking like a complete moron, just remember the words of that great Republican president..."Stay The Course."

Then there's the claiming to be defending America from something that's grossly distorted or exaggerated: How many people have ever tried dressing a cat up like a damn reindeer?

That's the most poorly drawn cat I've ever seen.

How would a tiny reindeer dress up a cat?

Well, at least Tinsley's not screwing the pooch again today. Just beating the usual dead horse.

OK, I give up. What's going on in this comic? Is the cat on the lady's head because she tried to dress it up as a reindeer? Or is that her hair and the cat knocked her down because she tried to dress it up as a reindeer? Although this comic is always poorly drawn with an inane "message", today it is particularly awful! I guess Brucie is off the booze and on the acid.

So in a commentary about dressing animals as other things....The image we get is that of an elderly woman on all fours looking terrified.....I shudder to think of what mallard did to get her that way.

Kip: +1.

dl: Will that internets be carry-out or delivery?

DharmaPete said...

At what point does this animal dress-up obsession become classified as a mental disorder?
