“The Supreme Court is really just a regular court with tomatoes and sour cream”

"The Supreme Court is really just a regular court with tomatoes and sour cream” is a joke that was told on the television show Late Night with Conan O’Brien, probably in 1999. The basis of the joke is that Taco Bell offers “supreme” tacos with tomatoes and sour cream.

The Supreme Court has been in the news quite a bit lately. This brings several things to mind.

In 1999 Conan O’Brien began making predictions of things that would come to pass in the year 2000 – – interestingly, he’s never stopped, and just a few weeks ago I saw him making more predictions of what would occur in the year 2000. But back in 1999, he made this bold prediction: “In the year 2000 it will be discovered that the Supreme Court is nothing more than regular court with sour cream and tomatoes.”

RT @Jewerstein: Based on what I learned from Taco Bell, the Supreme Court is like a regular court but with diced tomatoes and sour cream.

Did anyone else here ever watch “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” on NBC? I loved that show. One of my favorite skits was when Conan and Andy Richter would dress up in futuristic outfits and predict how the world would be “in the year 2000.” Here’s one of my favorite musings from the show:

“In the year 2000, it will be revealed that the U.S. Supreme Court is just a regular court with sour cream and tomatoes.”
