To kick off this festive holiday season, Tom Tomorrow gives us a collquy between Biff (out in the field for Action McNews) and Sparky the Wonder Penguin (recognizable for his Inuit-like goggles to ward off bull$hit blindness) and Spark recites a litany of recent police shootings of African American male children and Biff responds with the voice of white privilege. The list ends with Sparky telling of a white guy openly carrying an AK-47 and being briefly detained by police before he was sent his merry way. The Biff clone sputters in 2nd Amendment outrage. Spark tells the clone (with tongue in cheek): "I feel your pain." If this is is (fair & balanced) holiday
-cheer- sneer, so be it.
