Most nights, I’ll be sitting at my computer station between 7 and 8 p.m., staring into space and wondering what I should do for the next days MS-QOTD.  This process usually involves asking the women of my household what might make an entertaining and interactive query, then getting nonsense answers that eventually lead me somewhere fun.  Tonight, the response was fast, simple and fully formed, wondering which of the myriad cartoon ducks would reign supreme in all-out battle.  Would Duckula’s vampiric powers give him the edge over Rubberduck?  Can the lisping, simmering rage of Daffy Duck overcome Howard’s mastery of Quak-Fu?  And what about Donald?  Does ANYBODY know what he’s saying?  It’s a virtual farmyard of feathery fun, leading us to today’s waterfowled query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is super-biased on this one, what with my love of Steve Gerber’s Howard and his existential angst, asking: All the cartoon ducks must fight it out, loser wears pants: Which one gets your vote?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
