First of all, Dr. Wikipedia provides the meaning of an obscure word in today's 'toon (5th panel). With that info, you dear readers should be aces in today's "Scrabble Free" competition. Today, Tom Tomorrow gets a little weird as he ventures into the Dumbo/Moron mind(?) in search of reality. The search reveals the depth of Dumbo/Moron irrationality. Now, you will know why you have a WTF-reaction when you read/see/hear Dumbos/Morons bloviating. If this is a (fair & balanced) view of distorted reality, so be it.
