Enjoy this Classic Tom the Dancing Bug VINTAGE 2012 Every Thursday Panels from the annals of the Tom the Dancing Bug archive Check back every Friday for a fresh, brand new Tom the Dancing Bug! Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling A Walmart Detective Story The Long Adios I was in my office belting out a memo when my boss appeared. And he wasn't wearing a Walmart smiley face. Boss: Here's the case I want you to investigate: a WHISTLE-BLOWER has presented overwhelming evidence of extensive CORRUPTION here at WALMART. Man: Right, Chief. The papers sang like a canary. A vast system of bribes from Walmart executives to Mexican officials that endangered the environment and the Mexican legal system. And very against American law. I was just the guy to get to the bottom of this. Not only am I a Walmart executive, I was one of the key people accused in the bribery scheme. I went straight to the top, and didn't pull any punches. Man: Did you bribe Mexican government officials? NO! Man: ARE YOU LYING, PUNK? No! I SWEAR! Dammit, I believed myself. It didn't add up... Unless... Man: I've got it! Man: I denied any involvement, so the WHISTLE-BLOWER must be LYING! Boss: What a relief! Otherwise, I'd have to inform U.S. authorities! Man: No sweat, boss. CASE CLOSED. When the collar of the crime is white, the rich get richer, and the big guys never go to the big house. I'm a corporate investigator. I carry the cabbage. And I deliver the results my boss wants. END
