The e-mail from Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) containing today's This Modern World 'toon was late and that is because the late Saturday news about the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia must have forced the 'toonist is scrap the 'toon he had drawn for today and replace it with a bleeding-edge entry. In fact, as the story played out, Justice Scalia was found alone in his room at the hunting resort in Deep West Texas. This blogger hoped that the jurist would have been found in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy. However, life does not imitate crude Texas humor. So, in the aftermath, today's 'toon portrays the Dumbos in all of their glory and the scramble for the vacant SCOTUS seat begins. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy a graphic portrayal of Dumbo stupidity. Those sumbitches couldn't pour pi$$ out of a boot if the instructions were printed on the heel. If this is (fair & balanced) Texas humor, so be it.
