I wrote a bit about the Simpsons Season 1 DVD (likely the second DVD I ever owned, with Spaceballs being the first) which gave me an excuse to scan the booklet. God damn I love this episode description:

I suspect they might’ve been written by Matt Groening himself (he used to be a copywriter, he wrote the summaries of the Ullman shorts for the episode guide, he’s already writing the introduction for the set) but who knows, maybe that’s giving him too much credit. I feel like some guy at the DVD factory probably wouldn’t have the freedom to write so irreverently, though…

nobby's nuts


  • This Australian coin commemorating… Nobby’s Nuts? (↬ @punchhappiness)
  • I like this Oscars clip of the first time Best Animated Feature Film was a category… the concept of the animators having to make both winning/losing animations of their characters (will we ever see the animation of Jimmy Neutron winning?), Billy Crystal’s joke about a certain pair of producer brothers that’s only gotten better with age, Mike and Scully’s grimaces, the woman sitting next to Donkey just ecstatic over Shrek winning…
  • Some snobbish Hanna-Barbera expert declaring he shan’t be watching the cartoon Jellystone, not that he could anyway because he doesn’t even own a television (??? Then how is he watching all those classic cartoons???)
  • Simpsons conspiracy theories have been so prevalent that Reuters did a fact check of a TikTok video. Most of them I find funny but it always annoys me when I see “SIMPSONS PREDICTED EBOLA” in these things
  • Television Comics, the comic book about watching television

During the pandemic I’ve been making All Your Base memes on Twitter, which I’ve collected here.

Bruce Tinsley Watch


Fascinating look into the mind of Mallard Fillmore. This must be that compassionate conservatism I’ve heard so much about.

Watched a bunch of Seinfeld recently, I hadn’t really seen much of it before… OK I knew “serenity now” was a Seinfeld thing, but I never knew the context until now and… what the hell. The catchphrase isn’t funny, the episode sucks, I get the impression people in the 90s were just like “well, I guess this is the thing we have to say now”

RIP to Yahoo Answers. I went back to my profile and found some questions, which I’d pretty much forgotten about, and I’ve archived them here. I’m dreading the day the executives discover My Yahoo!, the last Yahoo service I use.

Sadly, G. Gordon Liddy did not live to see the 20th anniversary of 9/11, as depicted in the hit 2005 comic book Liberality For All:

It is 2021, tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of 9/11. America is under oppression by ultra-liberal extremists which have yielded governing authority to the United Nations. It is up to an underground conservative group (known as F.O.I.L.) led by Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Oliver North to thwart Ambassador Usama Bin Laden’s plans to nuke New York City.

The full synopsis is way goofier than I’d remembered.

Mallard Fillmore Watch

I regret to inform you that Mallard Fillmore has been CANCELLED by one of the nation’s largest newspaper consortiums:

Bruce Tinsley, creator of the 27-year-old cartoon, said he was told this week by his syndication company that Gannett newspapers across the country simultaneously dropped the comic over two strips critical of President Biden and transgender participation in women’s sports.

The strips in question:



Mallard has always been shitty on this issue so I guess I’m a little surprised that only now it’s a problem.

Also, finally, an on-the-record explanation of Tinsley’s mysterious disappearance:

He said he took time off last year due to a long illness. During that time, the syndicate brought in another cartoonist, Loren Fishman, to draw “Mallard Fillmore,” and that they now split duties.

Mr. Tinsley said he has gone back to creating four of the seven daily comics per week, and he drew the two Biden cartoons at the center of the controversy.
