That damned List

What's Mallard raving about today?

Beloit College

What must it be like to go out of your way to be upset by things which have no chance of affecting you whatever?

Such as a list that helps professors make references and comparisons that have meaning to their students.

Extra Credit: Draw a straight line between Mallard's reflexive hatred of progress, as a perfect illustration of the Conservative mindset, and Todd Akin.

It's funny, because the only hope the GOP has is that the rising generation knows nothing at all about the past, so that they can try to fill it up with worship of Earth-2 Reagan. Those who don't remember the past vote GOP.

Will Tinsley later claim that this strip is a reference to 9/11?

The Wizard of Id remembered. He's not even American. He lives in Id.

OH NO CALENDARS HOW DO THEY WORK

Jeez, Tinshley. Seriously, you don't remember any of your old excuses to draw a poor rendition of the American flag any more, do you? I wonder if Oct. 2's strip will be about pants like the one three weeks after July 4.

Missed Independence Day, Veterans Day and 9/11; what's next: skipping Thanksgiving and declaring war on Christmas?

But let's have a look at the Beloit College Mindset List that so enrages ducky. Oh my! It's actually an intelligent and useful list, with flashes of humor.

Humor.

That's what enrages ducky!

Maybe Tinshley's upset because he doesn't understand most of the references on the list.

Wait, no, that would mean he actually read the thing. Or anything.

It could be his 9/11 strip. Compared to Tinny, the average 11 year old is as smart as a college student.

(OK, it isn't. It's Part the Billionth in his series "I Hate the Uneducated/the Educated/Educators.")

Rewinn: Thanks for posting the link to the list. It is pretty funny. But I think it's not the humor itself that enrages Mallard/Brucie; it's that, being a conservative, he doesn't understand that it IS humor, and so reacts to it as though it's something genuinely outrageous, and expects his gullible fans (both of them) to react likewise. After all, "humor" to a conservative means, for example, saying that a Supreme Court justice should have rat poison slipped into his creme brulee.

And yeah, way to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11, Brucie. The way pseudo-patriots like you have fetishized and branded it, we had the right to expect at least a badly-scribbled silhouette of the Twin Towers burning.

It's important, from time to time, to remind your audience that you have no capacity to understand anything.

76. Mallard Fillmore has never been anything but unfunny partisan hectoring.

It's important to note that some things never change.

77. Tinsley has always received his talking points via email, never a fax machine.

This year's incoming freshman class has never known a time when that girl's haircut was stylish. Not even in the post-post-ironic way that Millennials love bad things.

Try not to draw college coeds who look like they're 45 years old. Also, stop calling female students "coeds".
