Those damned Remakes

What's Mallard raving about today?


"Mallard Fillmore continues to be one of the most highly contentious and celebrated comic strips, providing a unique conservative viewpoint to the comics pages. Mallard Fillmore has been a lightning rod for controversy with the right-leaning duck consistently addressing hot button issues and lampooning liberal politicians, the media and cultural establishments"

Except when he decides to imitate a bad stand-up comic. And does a poor job even at that.

Mallard is criticizing remakes and the people who watch them.

Starting Monday, a whole week on kettles and how gosh-darn black they all are. And no, Mallard won't even bother being green for the occasion.

I think @Kip beat me to the "This Mallard Fillmore is a itself a remake" quip, so I'll go with my backup comment:

Today's "comic" is not an outright incitement to hatred, which makes it among the top Mallard Fillmores of 2012, but still inferior in writing and artwork to The Born Loser

What? No jab at 3D? Remakes are nothing new. Okay, neither is 3D, but at least it's more topical.

Notice how the "tubs of popcorn" have no popcorn. They're really giant beer pong cups.

How much longer can you keep up your race against relevance and creativity, Bruce? Because (pokes Reverend Moon with stick), your Sugar Daddy ain't movin' so much these days.

An incredibly weak joke. OK, let's see what else we've got: Two heads, two buckets, some cushions, and some sticks floating in a black fog.

This bears repeating, because it continues to defy belief, especially with a strip like today's:

Someone got paid for this. With money.
