That damned Wisdom

What's Mallard raving about today?

Kids, Teachers

Marvin does a better job of capturing the essence of childhood than Mallard Fillmore, and Marvin does nothing but make poop jokes.

Bruce Tinsley doesn't like it either, when we stagger around and fall down into a puddle of our own sick.

Not very good, but not very bad either.
The main problem with today's "comic" is that it wastes the extra space given Sunday strips. Two panels with a little bit of an attempt at layout: progress I guess. You can really see
the 15 years of experience!

This strip is a quiet respite after the hectic pace set by Henry and Fred Basset.

Say, isn't somebody's job description "to be the conservative version of Doonesbury"? What type of flattery comes from pathetic imitation?

Kip W [Muffaroo] said...

Bill, it's like Wilma Flintstone's vibrator says. "Eh. It's a living."

Oh what fresh hell is this?

Yes, making fun of your teacher is a time-honored tradition, and should not be punished.

Rewinn, your comment reminded me of the old adage "Beware the artisan who boasts of twenty years experience at his craft, when in fact he has only had one year of experience -- twenty times."

rewinn said...

@Frank Stone - LOL..... that's today's "conservatives" for ya. Learning from experience just doesn't seem to be what they do ... as we see from the mindless parroting of the formula "cut taxes on the rich" despite its total failure as policy.

Let's see- 3 weeks ago- Aug. 5 was International Beer day- ah, I see. Tinsley had to finish up quickly, to have more time to celebrate. So he just grabbed an old Dennis The Menace collection, chose a strip with one child, no adults, and re-drew it.

Because nothing else newsworthy was happening then. Other than a gunman shooting people at a Sikh temple, the Mars Curiosity Rover landing, and the Olympics. Nah, nothing important.

What's up with that nightmarish Alice in Wonderland chair? If this is representative of Tinsley's childhood, that would explain a lot.

I don't get it. What did the kid do? Take a dump in the middle of the classroom and the teacher is punishing him for aping Bruce Tinsley?
