The Price Of Dumbo Environmentalism

'Tis a pity that the Dumbo in today's Tom Tomorrow 'toon didn't experience a cerebral hemorrhage ("stroke"). According to the Great Wikipedia, the risk factors for a "stroke" fit the Dumbo profile:

Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
Diabetes (Unhealthy Body Weight)
Menopause (True Republican Women)
Current cigarette smoking (Cough Cough)
Alcoholic drinks (2 or more/day).

And, of course, the POTUS 44 is a major cause of Dumbo frothing at the mouth. What a wonderful world it would be if all Dumbos who froth at the mouth were to be rendered speechless by a cerebral hemorrhage. If this is a (fair & balanced) fantasy, so be it.
