Is There Anything Dumber Than A Bag O'Glox?

The Great Wikipedia tells us about the Planet Glox and Glox News:

Planet Glox
Actually shown is only a newscast from Glox with two anchor-aliens. Their newscast resembles Fox News, and they report about news strikingly similar to that on earth, but in factual scientific terminology (i.e., Coneheads-style), thereby making, for example, fun of the public obsession with the sexual activities of public figures by referring to the global importance of touching reproductive organs.

Tom Tomorrow offers an alternative version of Mayor 9/11 (aka Rudolph William Giuliani) and his speculation about the loyalty of the POTUS 44. Mayor 9/11 makes no sense and his alternative version on Glox News makes even less sense. (Secret hint: use the search tool — "Search This Blog" to find previous posts featuring "Glox News" without the quotes.) If this is a (fair & balanced) portrayal of our own Praise of Folly, so be it.
