A screenshot of a New York Times editorial by Paul Krugman with the title '2020 Was the Year Reaganism Died' with the pullquote 'The government promised to help -- and it did.'

Continuing to update Anthropomorphic Republican Talking Duck with strips that are incredibly out-of-date. This one was written in 2017 (permalink):

Completely unrelated link that has nothing to do with anything

I quietly brought back my Simpsons news blog a couple months ago. It’s been redesigned with a mobile-friendly layout, tags have been added to every post, and I drew a spiffy new background for it.

Some recent stories:

I’ve been having a lot of fun making incredibly stupid stuff during these dismal times.

Over the years I’d have an idea for an Anthropomorphic Republican Talking Duck comic but I didn’t have the time or strive to do it, and then the moment would pass and it seemed silly to do something that was already outdated. Now my thinking is… why not just do them anyway. I came up with this one in either 2016 or early 2017:

Bruce Tinsley made a triumphant return to his comic strip for the first time in nearly a year. Two days later, it’s back to the other guy.

A picture of Rex from Star Tours
Wikipedia:

The Starspeeder weaves its way through the comet and escapes by crashing through one of the walls. Upon escaping the comet, however, the ship encounters a Star Destroyer of the Imperial Remnant.

The Starspeeder gets caught in its tractor beam, but manages to get loose when a New Republic X-wing fighter provided assistance by destroying the tractor beam’s generator. Soon the Starspeeder accompanies the Republic fleet on an assault on the Death Star III (later revealed by Leland Chee in 2013 to be a Habitation Sphere disguised as a Death Star in a plot by an Imperial Warlord to distract the New Republic). Rex uses the Starspeeder’s lasers to eliminate several TIE fighters while a Republic pilot destroys the Death Star in the same manner as Luke Skywalker by firing two proton torpedoes into the exhaust port.

Everything I thought I knew about Star Tours has been a goddamned lie

I remember feeling very distraught when I saw this at the bookstore because I thought the movie had already come out and I’d missed it (it hadn’t)

One of my favorite internet things is when some anodyne blog or feed or whatever suddenly gets Political, like when the maintainer of a simpsons screencap tumblr abruptly quit with a rant about how he’s sick of all the anti-Russia hate

Here’s a thing I came across on Flickr with the description “The excuse for violence at the hands of primitive Tribalists and Marxists.” Which is funny by itself but funnier when juxtaposed with the rest of his feed which is mostly “person drawn in simpsons style” and lego star wars generic dork stuff:

Really makes you think (disclaimer in case it’s ironic: ha ha I got the irony I was just being triple ironic)
