Nobody tell Hollingsworth that the taxes he avoids paying will pay for Lucky Ducky’s second rate prosthetic webbed foot/pegleg combination, courtesy of Big Government. Lucky Ducky!!!
SOCIALIST PROSTHESES FOR INJURED VETERANS! WHAT IS THIS, FRANCE?!
Actually, the present war with Eurasia is providing a great impetus to prosthetics science, as more soldiers are being saved — minus various limbs — who would have died in previous wars. US prosthetics pretty much define current SotA. Check out this BBC programme, Frontline Medicine: Rebuilding Lives.
Mind you, I don’t know what the situation is or will be when these soldiers muster out. Will successive administrations cut funding for injured veterans?
Shhhhhh. If austerity-obsessed 1%ers find out the government is giving away high-quality prosthetic legs for free (well, uh, not exactly free), there’s going to be a lot more guys nicknamed “Tilt.”
Eurasia! Made my day! How long for the US to fight Eastasia (Iran)?
We have always been at war with Eastasia.

Lucky Ducky got a free trip to Iraq too? Damn moocher.
Percival can save that foot!
Best in a while. Well done, sir! Glad to see The Bug is back on his game.
That’s good work, with a great bite in the last panel.
That last panel gave me goosebumps.
Good thing it’s only a cartoon leg, you can draw him another one.
How long will it take until lucky duck will be extra lucky duck, because he can print out his leg?
Forever, since Hollingsworth plans to buy a leg-factory.
