That damned Karl

What's Mallard raving about today?


I honestly have no idea what this is even supposed to be about.

Okay, so- there are doofuses who say "There he is!" when they see people, as sort of a greeting. I'll buy that. i think it's more a sitcom thing than a real-life thing, but, still, okay.

But0 "There he is" is a statement both by and to the person saying it, like "I found it" or "That's where I left the scissors!". It's not to the "him".

Therefore, it's not intended in any way as a statement to help a person know where they, themselves, are. So the whole introduction doesn't work. So the joke doesn't work.

In other words, Tinsley's a hack.

Verification- 18 Liceyl- how many times has Tinsley been put in the drunk tank, and what do they use to de-louse him?

I think the compass pre-dates maps, actually.

I can't wait till next Sunday, when he bitches about people who call everyone 'boss'. I'm not your boss, guy! I'm not your guy, buddy!

Brucie correctly describes our sun as a star.

And that's the nicest thing I can think of to say about today's entry. He doesn't deserve it, but there it is.

The only thing funny about this "comic" is the thought of some 70 year old teabagger trying to make sense of it.

"The STEVE-meister! STEVE-arama! STEVE-arino! May-kin' cop-eeez!"

Mallard's time lag has taken him back to the Rob Schneider days of Saturday Night Live.

"There he is! That drunk who rolls around pantsless with small children on his dusty floor, but claims to be an arbiter of what's moral in today's society! Look at him, I bet he's going to bitch about me the moment I'm gone from the room, maybe in a badly drawn cartoon, but he's way too cowardly to say anything to my face!"

Oh, and has Tinshley ever had an office job in his life? When, exactly?

(July 1 + 3 weeks, and still nothing. Wednesday's the day folks. Let's see if there's any self-awareness left in that soup of whiskey and misfiring neurons that fills ol' Brucie's skull!)

I'm inclined to give it another week. Figure a three week lead time, plus the standard procedure of shitting out week-long turds of strips. The question is, will he go with oozingly patriotic over-compensation, or huffy defensiveness?

Has having to support the gun-banning, abortion-supporting job exporter Mitt Romney finally broken The Tins?

Our sun is a star? What kind of filthy atheistic, evolutionary, liberal, pro-Muslim talk is that? What happened to the Mallard we all knew and loved, who stood up for Christian America?
