That damned Message

What's Mallard raving about today?


Spoken like someone watching the kind of TV he is decrying.

Hey, anyone know when the 4th of July was? Did it happen to occur on the 4th of July this year?

Wait, so the joke is that Mallard is pathetic and needs help? Is the leitmotif of this strip finally becoming overt?

And yes, Day 3 of "I Have This Feeling Something Important Happens At the Beginning of July" Watch and ... nope, just paddling around in the TV fascination. Even newspaper Peter Parker is relatively unaddicted to television compared with Tinshley's abomination.

God, first the douchebag behind the bar throws you out because "they're closing", and then even your most trusted friend, the TV, starts making fun of you. Thanks, Obama!

Actually, if you're watching TV at that time of night, there is a special class of advertisement that you will see, over and over and over, because they know you are likely to be extremely suggestible. It's like the ads from Fox News take over all the cable channels, receding again when the first dim rays of morning start the damn birds up again.

Um. So I hear.

Independence Day? Was that a movie by the liberal Hollywood elite?

Meanwhile, there's something called a "Presidential Election" going on. One of the major "conservative" talking points is guns. One of the major presidential candidate signed a gun ban, the other didn't. Can you guess which is which?

Poor Mallard -- so not exhausted from not doing real research and not attending tax protests that he's stricken with insomnia. Lucky for him he doesn't have to stagger into the studio until about 4:45 p.m. (just long enough to log onto and and to get his talking points for that evening's "news" broadcast).
