Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for August 24, 2012
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Woman: Oh. My. God. Woman #2: What?! Is Marci using your printer again? Woman: No, it's just that this summer went by so fast! Woman #2: Uhh! Tell me about it! Woman: When we were kids, a summer lasted forever! I'd go through three best friends a summer. Woman #2: Now there's barely time to schedule a bar-b-que. Woman: Everyone knows it's true. And scientists predicted it. Man: What do you mean they predicted it? Woman: It's all environmental! The greenhouse effect! Man: That's why summers are getting HOTTER! They only FEEL shorter! Woman #1: They "feel" hotter, too! What's your point? Woman #2: Big business and politicians are all: "It's all in your imagination." Woman #1: This summer didn't feel too short to you, Rick? Rick: But what's that got to do with carbon dioxide? Woman #1: Come on! It was on "Action News" last night! Woman #2: I saw that! From Memorial Day to Labor Day, it's the shortest summer on record! Rick: What...? Woman #1: Well, what do you want? He's management. Another corporate apologist. Woman #2: Oh my god! It's already noon! This is crazy!
