Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for October 15, 2010
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Boston, 1773 Man: So it is agreed. We are to destroy the tea in protest of Britain's taxation without representation. Man #2: AND in protest of Boston's LOCAL taxes!! Man: Huh? No, we colonists DO have representation on that issue! Mrs. Watkins: Why should orphans and the deformed get support from the government? Man: Mrs. Watkins, you are a widow who receives support! Mrs. Watkins: That's not the point! Man: Ahem! Aren't the laws against polluting the streets another form of government tyranny? Man: Hear, hear! The Tanners' Association would like to make a DONATION to this Tea Party! Man #2: And the butchers! Man: I'm from Ye Olde FOX News-papers! Let's dump the tea at noon on Saturday! We'll get a HUGE CROWD to show up! Man: No! It's TONIGHT! Man #2: You can't plan a spontaneous movement without the funding of big business and Fox! Man: And what about all those Irish immigrants? Man #2: I just love what our colony used to be SO MUCH! Man #3: Stop! Our plan is to dress up as mohawks... Man #4: Oo! And Nazis! Can I be a Nazi? Man #5: What's a Nazi. Woman: By the way...I'm not a witch. Man #6: And we'll call it the Fox News-Paper Tea Party...
