In search of the proper comparison for Cartoon Pat, I Googled "pumpkin man", "operation boardgame", "wizard of oz scarecrow", "bill clinton", and "cecil from the simpsons". Still, I think the closest look-alike is Jeff Daniels' character Harry from Dumb and Dumber. Here, see for yourself:
I wonder if Pat uses this rhetorical technique in the courtroom:
I'd love to hear a trial lawyer follow an argument with the phrase "Double-stamped it, no erasies!"
Whether the cartoon looks exactly like Pat or not, it looks very much like Harry Dunne. And just the thought of Harry standing in front of a judge makes me giggle a little. Thank goodness for courtroom sketch artists.
