That damned Party

What's Mallard raving about today?

Office Parties

Mallard's concept of Office parties is straight out of the 50's. Big surprise.

Mallard hates office parties, spycams, and people in general---but boy howdy, if it means humiliating or blackmailing someone (else), famed "Independent Libertarian" Bruce Tinsley gets stiff just thinking about it.

Mallard Fillmore is a blackmailer.

He goes to parties to get compromising photos, not to socialize.

I cried because I hated office parties... until I met a man who had no job.

I think today's "comic" dovetails nicely with Tinsley's obssession with pedophilia.

Sir, I think thou dost protest too much.

I guess those old stories about lampshades made out of human skin was just a rumor, or the duck would be wearing one on his head in this strip.

(Unless there's something to the link at the end of this.)

Has Tinshley even held a real, non-scribbling-and-guzzling-for-wingnut-welfare, y'know, job-type job? I'm guessing no.

Steve-O said...

@dlauthor, yeah, I was just thinking that this is how someone who must never have had any meaninful human interaction describes human interaction.

I always have fun at office parties. As long as you limit yourself to one drink, you can have a great time socializing with the people that you like, but don't have time at work to hang with. The nasty people usually drink too much, which makes them stupid and easy to humiliate in a socially acceptable way.
Cellphone cameras have made this even easier and more fun. When conversation slows down, we just take some pictures ... posing can be fun!
Today's "comic" is really pretty sad, because it's predicated on the inherent joylessness of being Mallard Fillmore. Hey, it's the Season little buddy; lighten up and enjoy life!

@ajm: I cried because I hated office parties... until I met a man who had no job.

...and then I laughed, and laughed, because I'm a Republican and that type of thing makes me happy.- Mallard

Better than his usual understanding of the world, which would have been regressive and ignorant in the 50s B.C.

Word Verification: Quathu, Qua is an abbreviation of quad and thu is a googleplex, and Tinsley has quathu hate and evil.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Bruce Tinsley only did about 0.025% of his job today.
