Simulacron

A mildly sophomoric discussion can be fun to have about whether the universe we experience is “real,” or just an elaborate simulation some other universe is running.

Tom Tomorrow explores this avenue in a pretty desperate attempt to mask his straight-up reporting of the news, as “parody.” Which we know, since early 2017. is un-possible. #NoParody

Masks & Taxes

They don’t care. There is no shame. It’s impossible. They are getting what they want, and they simply don’t give a f* who it hurts. If you look at their attitude about wearing masks during the pandemic, I saw a meme that sums it up:

In hindsight, it may have been a mistake to tell Americans that wearing masks was for the protection of OTHER people

And now, this.

For many reasons, not least these four posted by a friend of mine on Pluspora.com yesterday, I sadly predict that this latest “Oh, boy, we’ve got him NOW!” moment will pass just like all the others did.

  • His followers would have to accept that they were conned. They won’t do it.
  • He will yell “fake news” and his followers will chant along because they’ve been well trained.
  • His followers dig his hateful policies and don’t care that he’s actually a fraud and a loser as long as he hates the same people they hate.
  • His followers think tax avoidance is what rich people do, so Trump’s tax returns are aspirational for them. (They won’t recognize the business failures part.)

Cliff!

Isn’t that what we yell now? After all, the Pumpkin has pretty much trashed every Norm!

Oh by the way, Happy Bastille Day! Where my guillotine at?

Why Try?

Why try to parody these actual events?

What will you add to this story?

#NoParody

Not Even Trying

Tom Tomorrow is one of our brave cartoonists, trying to create parody in the face of a world that will allow #NoParody.

No… wait… he’s given up.
