WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) — At the Supreme Court today, Justice Antonin Scalia told his fellow Justices how privileged he felt to serve on the highest court in the land, adding, “I can say stuff here that got me fired at Kinko’s.”

Responding to quizzical looks from his fellow Justices, Scalia related a little-known chapter from his career, when he briefly worked for the copying establishment in the mid-nineteen-seventies.

“They were pretty uptight,” he reminisced. “It seemed like every time I opened my mouth I got hauled into H.R.”

According to Justice Scalia, “The gal in Human Resources told me, ‘Nino, you can’t just go around insulting blacks and women and whatnot. There’s not a workplace in the country that will tolerate that.’ ”

“Well, guess what? She was right—until I got this job,” he chuckled.

But even as he expressed gratitude for the freedom to offend gays, minorities, and women in his current position, Mr. Scalia admitted, “It has basically spoiled me for life in the real world.”

“I’ll be at some ballgame shooting my mouth off, and suddenly I’m face down in the ground with someone’s foot up my ass,” he said. “And then I’ll have to remind myself, ‘Nino, if you’ve got something to say, save it for the Supreme Court.’ ”

Giggle. The man does suffer from hoof and mouth disease no doubt. I hope he sees this piece though because if there is one thing he needs more than anything else, it is a bit of a laugh at himself and how others see him. Thanks, Kit. Nice way to end the day! :^)

You are all welcome - I aims to please. Or should I say...Andy aims to please. Thinking about that life sentence we have with Scalia is enough to sour anyone on the current court.

Thanks for the chuckle Kit. Wish there were some way we citizens could impeach the "hoof in mouth" guy with a virtual foot in the butt.. out of the Supreme (?) Court!

Don't you just wonder what he had said at Kinko's???
Let's watch this guy! Hoping he'll get his!
Sounds like he will never learn Courtesy!
He did this stuff in the mid Seventies. 40 years ago!
Things have changed a lot! He shouldn't have done it then and especially now!
Thank You

Ty Kit. . a good one for a long day. . .but i don't believe Scalia for one minute about the ballgame routine. . .there is absolutely NO WAY a foot could fit with his fat head constantly up there already. . .

Thanks for sharing!

Now I know why everything is so wrong everywhere! But don't let me JUDGE the judges!

When Karma comes back around, a foot in the ass will seem like small potatoes to him!

Actually, now that I think of it, Scalia could be called the Don Rickles of the Supreme Court.

There's a whole lot of stupid in that man - and bigotry and racism and ego and all that great stuff that makes the man truly disgusting. I like Angelika's comment....

This man makes me want to get violent... you know.. being in a direct action team leader.. standing in front of poachers and telling my young team members to remain calm and take control. I am probably the most emotional of everyone, as you all know me well enough. I remove my self and stay out of the line of fire. This is why i am the leader and they do most of the action. People like this Scaley Creep..really set me off.. they attack because they hold power and have no concern... power means all for them. Money and Power and they know it! Untouchable...then it takes underhand direct action people to sneak in and stand in front of them...dressed in black...when no one is looking... to take pictures, and make phone calls, and months of backdoor deals...to FINALLY get something done. I really dislike these type of people. ... No Excuse for giving them this much control...and there is TOO MANY like him in America!

Not completely untouchable, Roxy....Karma smiles on those of great hubris....his mouth and his arrogance will be his undoing......one way or another, Karma will be coming for him. He won't enjoy the embrace.

I can't stand to look at him. Where's my BP pills.....

Whose got the duct tape --- it is past time to tape this idiot's mouth shut! Too bad Kinko's didn't do it years ago.
Terrie, I sure hope you have a great drug plan with all the BP pills you take! You crack me up!!!
 

Terrie Williams (772)
Wednesday March 6, 2013, 2:48 pm
Nope, all I have for a drug plan is my piddly amount I can scrape together after bills....and hope like hell I can go to the doctor once in a while. But hey.....everyone can afford premium health care insurance in this country....right? Why yes, I AM rolling my eyes at that one.

Love your duct tape suggestion, Lynn! I can think of at least 1,450 ways to use it on him too. It wouldn't be pleasant.....for him anyway. Heh heh heh

This insensitive idiot didn't learn a thing from his firing. He became more vile. What a shame he's on the SCOTUS. Goes to show how stupid the repubs are voting for such a creature. Too bad he cannot be impeached.

That ballgame scenario he describes --now THAT's something I'd pay quite a bit to actually witness!

Seems to me he's learned the language of the politicians.
