Those damned Researchers

What's Mallard raving about today?

Ryan Seacrest, Carson Daly

Mallard Fillmore, unable to accept that popular culture has simply passed him by, instead rails against it.

Go ahead, Mallard, curse the Night. Good luck with that.

The good news is Brucie drew something other than his usual lazy black smears at the top of the panel (although it's not quite clear exactly what; if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say ceiling lights).

The bad news is the strip still looks like shit. As usual.

Hey, we can always speculate how vile an "I'm not the racist, you all are" steaming pile of crap was originally planned for today to be replaced with something so profoundly forgettable.

Doonesbury's equivalent to Mallard Fillmore is Roland Burton Hedley, III, a similarly clueless conservative. But unlike the hapless duck, Hedley actually goes places that requires artwork to depict.

Is this a winning junior-high contest entry, or is he letting his Ouija™ board write the strip again?

(That's not writing; that's lettering.)

Seriously, the target audience for this "comic" (bible-thumping septuagenarians and cammo-wearing mouthbreathing redneck idiots)will have no fucking clue what he's talking about. So really, par for the course in Mallardville.

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve featuring Ryan Seacrest and Carson Daly" was nearly four and a half months ago.

In fact, one of those people has passed away during the interval from when this was topical to when it was published.

I suspect, too, that Tinshley would have complained about Dick Clark back in the day. He's about that big of an asshole.
