I’m not a big fan of strips that take aim at contemporary television. For one thing, there are tons of great shows that are either in their prime (like Lost) just completed (like The Sopranos) or still going strong after long runs in syndication (like The Simpsons). But a more important point is that, even though there is plenty of muck to make one weep for the future (like Rock of Love), nobody is being forced to watch anything. That said, I was thoroughly taken with this depiction of Donald Trump as an angry duck who wields a pint-sized bat and threatens a trio of game show contestants. Sure, The Apprentice has been off the air for a few years, but this caricature is so inventive that I’m willing to overlook the fact that it’s not timely.
