What's Mallard raving about today?

TV

Someone watches waaaaaaay too much TV.

Aww, poor poor oppressed white Christian American male! We all know that God intended the women, children and minorities to be the ones getting beaten!

Not mentioned: judge beats drunk driver.

Hi, everyone. I'm Mallard Fillmore, and I don't understand the humor foundation of the situational comedy format.
Also, I clearly don't watch Modern Family. And why would I? It might make me question my predeterminations. Or make me think, even just a little. Can't have that.

Yes, Mallard, in a comedy, the person with the least amount of power overall tends to win. That's what makes it funny. (Well, "funny.") When someone who already has more power over someone else abuses that power, that's more sad than anything. But I guess he wouldn't mind sitting back and enjoying watch a white male ruin the lives of people who are disadvantaged in the first place.

Also, "anglo?" What the shit, Mallard?

And in the writers room of every sitcom and late-night talk show, white males trump EVERYBODY ELSE.

I love how Tinsley tries to scoop dirt over his Oppressed Pale Dongaloid Butthurt with a rare moment of Pretending To Give A Shit About The Darks.

If only he gave half as much a shit about the real world as he does about television.

Oh, there's more!
• Kids beat rabbit
• Kids beat leprechaun
• Kids beat cuckoo bird

And in general,
• Target audience beats whoever pulls their strings in real life.

SCANDAL.

On the whole, today's offering makes even less sense than usual. I think he needs to stop drinking the cheap stuff.

Bruce's more offended by the suffering of fictional characters than by the suffering of actual human beings.

Your typical conservative.
