Tinsley gets “death threats?” He really does live in a fantasy world, doesn’t he? You draw a comic strip, gasbag.
I know he thinks it’s “speaking truth to power,” but it’s just a comic strip. It’s nothing. If Tinsley got a death threat, it was probably from some ten-year-old; more likely he once got a nasty phone call from Garry Trudeau (whose wife Tinsley used to have Mallard insult on a regular basis).
I always wanted to see Mallard hook up with his co-worker (or Ann Coulter). I wanted to see how his conservative friends would react to the thought of Mallard stuffing his tiny sliver of duck-stiffy into a human’s…ahem. More roast duck, anyone? Careful, it’s a bit gamey.
Then I remembered Mallard doesn’t have any friends. He has “minority acquaintences” who appear occasionally for one-shot appearances to back up his statements (and mask Tinsley’s bigotry). The rest of his world consists of The Liberal Idjits He Has To Put Up With - just, I imagine, like Tinsely’s world.
Tinsley is a sad little man.
