Random thought of the day

The Simpsons totally needs to do a "Little Miss Sunshine" homage. Grampa loves porn! Lisa in a talent show! Homer with an annoying get-rich-quick sheme. Beleaguered Marge! I suppose Steve Carell would have be be played by ... Smithers? Or Lenny or Carl? Somehow Disco Stu would have to be involved.

And random Simpsons moments that made me laugh recently:

-- Lisa disguises herself as a boy to sneak into "real" math class at the newly segregated Springfield Elementary. She outs herself during an awards ceremony. A chair fight breaks out among the boys and Skinner brings out the award-winning flautist, Ralph. So Lisa gleefully whacks him with a chair! The expression on her face is a thing of beauty.
-- An episode of "The O.C." has the characters frolicking in slow motion -- in Knott's Berry Farm. (Because what else is there to do in Orange County, LOL)? And one of them is wearing a Snoopy costume! I laugh so hard every time.
-- In the episode where Lisa develops weight issues, she dares herself to have one lick of frosting from a huge cake in the refrigerator. The cake reads "Happy Labor Day, Lenny." I really want an icon of that. Because it doesn't get any more random, or any more funny, than that.

And god, I'm so tired. I don't even know if I'll stay up for 24 ... *collapses*

My personal favorite moment from that episode is after she eats the one tiny scoop of frosting, then goes out of her mind and starts rolling around in it, cackling. So funny.

Agreed. Lisa going nuts and doing a cake-angel is priceless. I can't say why, though, but a cake for Lenny (Happy Labor Day?) is just one of those random throwaway things that makes me laugh even harder than the more developed stuff sometimes.

I've gotten 8 hours total over the last 2 days, so I feel your pain, I'm watching 24 tomorrow night, which I have to thank the inventor of the VCR for.

One of the best episodes ever, when Homer tried to help Marg with her Pretzel stand.."Where is the pretzel money." and the other women brought in the Yakuza, to counter act Tony.

Oh man, step away from the comp and get some sleep, hon!

I love the Pretzel Wagon episode! ;) Esp. the yakuza vs. mob showdown.

Hee, it really is even more funny if you grew up going to Knott's before it got "cool" with all the rollercoasters. If in fact, if is considered cool now.

And who's that in your icon & layout? I meant to ask but LJ was being a bitch and wouldn't let me comment the other day. Kinda looks like John Krasinski but I can't be sure!

So my mom, who's a food scientist, worked for Knotts Berry Farm foods and I got in free till I was like 14 or so. Whatever charm that place had wore off! I think it was only cool around Halloween, but what do I know from cool? Plus me=scardey cat.

Don't they get beat up in slow motion with California playing? So awesome.

And yep, John Krasinski being all emo like and junk. :)

You just made me picture a heroin-addicted Grandpa Simpson urge a mute Bart to "fuck as many women as humanly possible! Do it while you're still young!" Hee!

Bwaha! Yes! Although maybe Jimbo would be better in the disaffected teen part?

The Simpsons is my reason for living. Absolute favourite? The vacation at Itchy and Scratchy land, when the robots are going on a psychotic rampage, and Homer decides he's had enough: "No-one ruins my family vacation except me! And maybe the boy!"

*rolls on the floor giggling madly*

Oh yeah, that one is classic! :) Even funnier if you've ever seen "Westworld."
