The Final Edition immerses you in a satire of the Court’s past, present and future. Agreeing with the first Chief Justice that, “The country ought to be governed by those who own it,” we show why disempowering the downtrodden and rewarding the powerful was, is and always will be a very, very good thing.
The scrappy young Supreme Court decides “No-one is Supremer than us, right?” starts the Civil War, determines how much blackness in your ancestry makes you black and therefore members of a separate race (1/8th); and establishes the legal principle of Stare Decisis. (Latin for “Rich old white men rule!”)
All Hell breaks loose when white – but not rich or old – men infiltrate the Court and un-decide what has been decided, like segregation and the pursuit of happiness through whiskey and decide that women may decide what to do with their own bodies, that guns are good and corporate lives matter. Justice Scalia decides Hell is too politically correct. Justice Roberts decides he is smarter than you and everyone decides to watch the new warm and wacky ABC sitcom Full Court.
What glorious possible futures await the Supremes? Will Spot and Mittens get the vote? How will Justice Judge Judy rule? How come the first temp-to-perm Millennial Chief Justice crowd-sources his decisions but can’t get health coverage? When does cloning make it possible for dead rich old white men to control the Court? And after Clarence Thomas establishes the legal principle of 3/5ths of One Man One Court, how does the Trump dynasty ride to the rescue of a grateful nation?
