That damned Auto-Correct

What's Mallard raving about today?

Auto-Correct

On today's Mallard Fillmore, Mallard demonstrates that, even if you remove the political hackery from his work, he still sucks at his job.

Informed sources on the ground have revealed that Mallard Fillmore actually had an anti-Obama, pro-GOP "comic" prepared for today, but the Romney campaign paid him $10,000 not to run it.

"Worst Siri Question Ever" is 10 months old, or roughly back when Donald Trump was the GOP's leading candidate. Truly, "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...."

He's just warming up for a week of "Disney owns Star Wars now," aka "Vader in a Tutu."

Good GOD.
Every thing about this is wrong.
I don't even...
That's...

I need to go look at myself in the mirror and cry for a bit.

Criminy -- I don't even own a smartphone, but I still know that's not how they work.

Bruce did give us (inadvertently, as usual) the best metaphor yet for his "comic" strip, though: "hideous pig nipples". Think about it: both provide minimal sustenance for the tiny audience that seeks them for that purpose, but both are hopelessly unattractive and functionally useless to all others.

Now, see, I thought this one was almost not unfunny. Almost. For Mallard, that's an epic win.

Mission accomplished today: Tinsley set out to say "poop" and "nipples" and he did. He's a regular Brooke McEldowney.

The youngest 'Gerald' I know was born in 1948.

On the plus side, his dialogue is the most coherent this strip has seen in years.
