The author of this fascinatingly asinine comic:
Was arrested twice in the last month, once for driving under the influence and once for public intoxication.
Now, drunk driving itself is Not Funny™, but it is funny that the DUI arrest happened on the same day his comic strip about the horrors of alcohol-free egg-nog ran in almost 400 newspapers across the nation.
Nitpicker has a contest under way to provide an actual punchline for a Mallard Fillmore comic. I’ve already submitted my Mel Gibson-inspired concept, but if you think you can do better, leave a comment there.
