    It's a quiet Sunday afternoon, after the usual motley crew of assorted losers, twits, and dumb-bells spinning political sewage in the morning. If there's EVER a reason to go to church other than worship God, it's to avoid morning political shows. Anyway, I wondered if Webster's or Wikipedia would be accepting of the following premise: We need an appropriate photo to accompany the urban/slang definition of 'Tool'. Here are my suggestions.
