Tom the Dancing Bug, IN WHICH Charley the Australopithecine stalks and seizes a hapless waitperson at Bucka-Rooster's.

Um, Charley = Trump? And the other characters are most of the rest of us, putting up with Trump's shit until he gets the boot in November?

This is a colorized rerun from maybe a decade ago, for those of you unfamiliar with the Bolling oeuvre.

The prospect of subjecting waitstaff to the indignity of referring to themselves as "Bucka-Buddies" lodged in my mind as particularly sadistic.

But then how could he have mapped it onto present-day US politics so perfectly? There's witchcraft involved, mark my words!


#5

Looks like somebody's been reading Willem Van Loon again.


#6

Would it actually take 5 bucka-buddies to wrestle an australopithecine?
I've read that a 50kg chimpanzee can out-lift a 100kg human, but is there any way to determine if Charley's muscles would look more like human ones or chimp ones?
