Silly inkblot tests

Fusco Brothers had this comic. It reminds me of this movie joke:
Bob Wiley: [telling a joke] The doctor draws two circles and says "What do you see?" the guy says "Sex."

[everybody laughs]

Bob Wiley: Wait a minute, I haven't even told the joke yet! So the doctor draws trees, "What do you see?" the guy says "sex". The doctor draws a car, owl, "Sex, sex, sex". The doctor says to him "You are obsessed with sex", he replies "Well you're the one drawing all the dirty pictures!"
I actually had Commissioner Irwin Joseph order me to get a Rorschach inkblot test for the family court. A local psychologist did the tests on me and my ex-wife, and supplied a computer-generated personality profile to Joseph. There is, of course, no scientific evidence relating this nonsense to any parenting ability. It is like going to a local psychic or astrology for a reading.
