In earlier episodes, Tom's news stories on the main events of the episode would be preceded by the last lines of an otherwise unheard report about Hillary Clinton's ass. Although prominent in earlier seasons, this joke has faded in recent episodes.
Tom has not been seen since "Pandemic". He appears to have been replaced by other news reporters.
Tom is usually seen wearing a gray suit with a white shirt and tie. The color of his tie tends to change between appearances. He has brown hair.
"...but Hillary Clinton's ass just keeps getting bigger."
- Some confusion has arisen over Tom's actual name. His last name was confirmed to be Pusslicker in "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow". However, in "Imaginationland, Episode III", there is a news reporter who looks like Tom, but who is referred to as Steve. In "Night of the Living Homeless", another news reporter who looks like Tom is referred to as Chris Swollenballs.
