That damned Return

What's Mallard raving about today?

Returns, Marriage

You SEE people! The Gays RUINED marriage and forced this lady to return her husband to the store! We warned you!

So the gays HATE marriage, and that's why they want to be married. Suddenly, I'm realizing why Tinsley wanted to be a cartoonist.

A run of the mill installment of "The Lockhorns". But definitely an above average effort for Mallard.

Isn't that the Tea Party lady? And isn't that guy dressed like a (TP) congressman? What the heck?

Fixing This One Was Too easy ...

... although points to Tinsley for drawing on something he knows about for a change!

Wow. Actual effort on Bruce's part! It's not funny, but pints for art.

Haha! I meant POINTS for art! Somehow, "pints" seems apropos, too.

Points for attempting art, but I can't give credit for success here.

I mean, it's nice that the queue of recurring characters here (Flannel Toque Guy is my favorite of the bunch) don't flagrantly violate any laws of geometry, but the Returns window is still depicted as a dimensional portal floating in the formless void.

And the writing doesn't actually indicate that the bald man in the trolley is supposed to be Mrs. Longnamesarefunnyright's husband; we just fill that information in because married couples who loathe each other are an ancient comics-page trope.

I like to imagine that he's a rare example of somebody being sold into elderly white male slavery. It makes the strip slightly funny.
