With A Name Like "Cliff" — You'll Never Lack For Drop-Overs

Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) — like this blogger — had a bad week after November 8, 2016. The best the poor 'toonist could offer for this week was a recycled 'toon that was inspired by the final scene from "Thelma and Louise." Like those two incredible women, this blogger understood their final choice. And viewing the video clip of that scene, this blogger understood what the 'toonist was trying to say. Of course the inclusion of the "blow it up" nihilism of one of Il Douche's followers is included in the final panel. If this is (fair & balanced) catharsis, so be it.
