Why is she missing a shoe in some panels?


#3

She’s a duck. Why’s she wearing any?


#4

I can’t decide whether I want to see the rest of the comic. I hope it will end with Donald admitting that Daisy is right and that the world should be more balanced, but I have a feeling I’ll be disappointed.


#5

It’s with her pants.


#6

It’s really about ethics in game journalism.


#7

So, she knows how to read Donald Duck?


#8

It’s buried in male duckbutt.

One of the first MAD Magazine issues I ever read had a bit about “What happens when other cartoons follow the Doonesbury model.”

In one Donald is ranting about the lack of respect he receives and asks, as I recall, “Why is my intellect not compared to that of Plato or Aristotle?”

Daisy replies, “They weren’t bare-assed ducks in sailor suits.”

MAD got extra credit for the risque use of “ass”.

I see, you think she’s supposed to walk around naked to fulfill your male sexual desires. Typical.

Daisy Duck had her own comic book title in Brazil in the 80s and 90s. I remember many stories had an actual no-BS feminism-friendly slant in questioning gender roles and dealing with issues like independent, competent, adventurous womanhood.

Here’s an honest-to-goodness academic paper on this (Portuguese only, sorry).

I hear that going barefoot whenever possible is a good way to build up arch strength for those with flat feet.
