His Last Wish Was To Tap Dance With Shirley Temple

The Supreme Court ruled, in a 5 to 4 decision, that Justice Clarence Thomas was to have his own drinking fountain. Justice Thomas, who voted with the majority, expressed his delight with his separate but equal distinction. The “fountain” actually is a garden hose located in the back of the Supreme Court building.

Writing in her dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg noted that the “fountain” would be frozen during the winter months. Justice Antonin Scalia responded by punching her in the mouth and writing, in Latin verse, that snow on the ground made an excellent source of water.

The hose will be officially known as the Clarence Thomas Memorial Fountain because, in a 5 to 4 decision, the Court ruled that Justice Thomas should be executed for miscegnation. Justice Thomas voted with the majority.
