He drew George W. Bush, like, twice during the course of his presidency, so this seems like a pointless exercise.

  1. A couple weeks before the election is the perfect time for America’s second-most syndicated political daily strip (source: my ass) to crank out some observational humor tripe
  2. In case you’ve forgotten, Chet is one of Mallard’s supporting characters. I don’t think he has actually appeared in the strip for like a year
  3. Who the hell says “catchwords”
  4. Zero clue what the “what” thing is referencing

This is my favorite genre of Mallard Fillmore strip, the sputtering, aggrieved “Oh yeah, well, a DEMOCRAT did something bad, too..!” routine. This all-time classic from the Mark Foley scandal is another fine example:

I assume Tinsley made Gerry Studd’s name big because he couldn’t find a picture of him on Google. Speaking of which, I love how over the years his footnotes have gone from “SOURCE: AP” or whatever to “SOURCE: WASHINGTON TIMES” to, finally, “SOURCE: GOOGLE SOME OF THE WORDS IN THIS STRIP.” I was trying to find some examples and came across this notable effort by someone to track down and check the strip’s references, which I wish they’d kept up.

Never forget the time Mallard Fillmore went to war with Jon Stewart because he didn’t understand how parody works

After like two weeks of strips about trigger warnings, I thought perhaps Bruce Tinsley had gone soft and was deliberately avoiding the big stories of the day – legalized gay marriage, the Confederate flag, Donald Trump’s comments about Mexicans – and then, BAM! He knocks it right out of the park!

I drew a caricature of my wife. Once. I thought it would be a cheap birthday present. Instead it was the most expensive birthday present ever. I’m still paying for it. I also learned that the appropriate response to “You made me look like a drowned rat” isn’t “No, that’s not the part that I did”.

Mallard Fillmore has had an actual website for the past two months and nobody told me???

Oh good, Mallard Fillmore actually remembered Veteran’s Day this year:

Please keep in mind that within the strip Bruce Tinsley is a separate, distinct entity from Mallard Fillmore, so try not to think about the gross implications of Mallard Fillmore having a human father.

An ally linked me to this strip and theorized Bruce Tinsley has never actually encountered a Twinkie in person. He just knows that they come individually wrapped.


01/08/2013

Today’s strip adds more kindle to that theory. He appears to have done a little research on what the box looks like. But’s he’s has placed the Twinkie at the very bottom of the strip so you can only see part of it. Does Tinsley know what a Twinkie looks like? Evidence inconclusive…

BONUS MALLARD FILLMORE WATCH: I submitted a thing to the great comics tumblelog A Good Cartoon. Who knew Mallard was so progressive?

Mallard Fillmore forgot about Veteran’s Day again doh

This is the second time since 2006 (third if you include 2009, but there was never a “whoops, my bad!” comic acknowledging it so I don’t think it counts)



So this Santa person, who according to legend can see people at any time, feels “really guilty” about watching young girls…?



Ha ha, the post office is quickly becoming obsolete! Good one, newspaper cartoonist working in dying medium
