"Dis Shows How Classy We Are!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because John Carradine--the man, the myth, the legend.

Some how, Muir managed to mix in one his mythical Islamo-Mexican terrorists into this thing.

Things are getting weird.  Even by his standards.

"As Obama Is For It, It Must Be Evil!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because John Carradine is omnipresent.

Muir gloats about the bus with the promise printed on it that was a lie on the next episode of "Muir Being a Painfully Obliviously Moron."

"More Money! More Money! MORE MONEY!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because John Carradine in your breakfast cereal.

I think Muir views Trump as the inevitable victor, and damn the facts.

And yet more desperate begging.  Fun times.

It Was Funnier In Caddyshack. And By That, I Mean It Was Actually Funny.

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because John Carradine in Red Zone Cuba.

Again, Muir babbles about something that will likely hurt him soon from a position of supreme ignorance.  And again the "Democrats as French aristocrats" meme goes on. 

It's crazy all the way down.

"Racist Assholes Back This, So It Must Be A Good Thing."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because John Carradine in The Unearthly!

Muir, stop pretending you know what the hell the Brexit actually is...

"I Tell You Why Do They Treat Us Like Dangerous Criminals? Why?"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Dr. Tongue's 3-D House of Stewardesses.

The ongoing problem of Muir's fictional universe is that he keeps trying to pose his characters as a bunch of everymen, while simultaneously painting them as violent "freedom-fighters".  (And also billionaires with loads of tech and political connections, but that's another problem.)  Now, it might be possible to have them start out as the former and move to the latter, but Muir doesn't do that--Zed and Sam are and always have been simultaneously "normal folks" AND people who've regularly violently attacking federal agents.  Which leads to the problem that the "bad guys" have every reason to be suspicious of these people as they've rather regularly broken the law, frequently in a violent fashion.

But then, in Muir's world, only those OTHER people are terrorists.

"Need More Money, Need More Money..."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because potatoes and molasses.

I've been noticing the increased length of time it takes Muir to raise funds from his suckers for some time now. It's nice to have a confirmation that it's not in my head.

And I'm saying this, because any observation that keeps me from talking about that mess of a strip is a good thing.

"The Genius Of This Will Escape All But My Fans..."

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Sammy Maudlin.

Man, Muir seems to yo-yoing between soul-sucking evil craziness, and soul-sucking banal craziness.  I mean, apart of me is trying to get how I would describe this particular strip to a casual acquaintance and the phrase 'and it's not even half as funny as it might sound', keeps popping up.

Which is bad, because the description that I keep coming up with aren't funny to begin with.

"It IS TEH SEXY!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because radon.

...

...

It's amusing that Muir's idea of a loving marriage is a relationship that frequently seems border on pimping.

Of course, Zed never lets them actually sleep with his wife.

Just ogle her.

"Enjoy Crazy Stuff And Bad Cheesecake!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because here in my car.

You know, the worst thing about this strip's breaks from reality is how unearned they feel.  Muir has barely convinced us any of us characters exist accept as convenient puppets for his views.  He doesn't get to say "And now there's magic" and not have us roll our eyes.

"There's A Point To All This! Somehow!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because svrand.

As we try to sort through that babble, let us consider that--as frequently has been the case of late--Muir's fundraising efforts have started strong... ish, and then petered out.  

I'm waiting for this one to drag on for some time...

"The Fact They're Insulting Me Proves I'm Right!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Smeagol shows you secret ways no one else can find.

The analogy gets more tortured with each strip.  At this point, it's really a question what this is supposed to be a parody of...

Saturday, June 4, 2016

"This Is The Real Story! The Gnomes Told Me So!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because that's how strong my love is.

"This can't be what it looks like!  I'm not going to trust my lying eyes!  And what about this vague innuendo, hmmm?"

"Yeah! Only A Rich White Man Can Stand For Us!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because with your fetlocks blowing in the wind.

Man, Muir continues to want to try and force this analogy.  Which continues not to work.

"Gib Me MONEY!"

It's the Day's Day of Days!  Because Mr. Owl.

"Hey, Brain, why is it that despite our supposed hatred of moochers, we basically beg our readers for money every year?"

"Well, Drinky, I'd explain why this is an exception--but, oooh, look!  An unopened bottle of Jack Daniels!"

"Oooh!  Shiny!"
