Today, Tom Tomorrow Pulls A Fast One....

Spoiler alert: today's Tom Tomorrow 'toon contains graphic, shocking violence. Full disclosure: this blogger took Tom Tomorrow at his word that a subscription to Sparky's List might contribute to Spark's recovery. That said, there is a possibility that the next Tomorrow 'toon will feature a small casket with a pair of Inuit-style bull$hit-blindness goggles on the lid. That will be a sad day on "This Modern World." At least today, Wanda and Biff of Action McNews are struck dumb after the shots ring out. If this is a (fair & balanced) example of art imitating life, so be it.
