So somebody posted a link on FB of shop signs from The Simpsons tv show. You know, like “Eye Caramba” for an optical shop, etc.
The first posted comment from a reader goes like so:
“almost all of these are old simpsons. 1. season 9 lisa’s sax 2. season 11 EIEI (where homer challenges everyone to a duel, then has to run and ends up growing tomacco 3.season 7 king size homer 4. season 11 the last tap dance in springfield 5. season 9 girly edition 6. season 9 das bus 7. season 12 I’m going to praise land 12. season 9 simpson tide and the third to last and second to last are from the same episode, cartridge family season 9. the new simpsons just are not as good because they are original. they took the family guy and south park way out where they just go off of current events and pure randomness. so don’t try to defend them its just an old program that ran out of ideas, still good for a couple laughs because the characters are so beloved.”
I was so tempted, internets. So tempted. Because the guy who posted this, from what I can tell by his tiny photo, appeared to be a middle-aged nerd posing with a ventriloquist’s dummy crafted in his own image. Between that and his encyclopedic knowledge of this tv show, or his willingness to google each sign and collect the answers in his comment? SO. TEMPTED. To leave some kind of comment speculating as to his probable virginity and almost certain residence in the basement of his parents’ home.
Not that there’s anything wrong with virginity or your mom’s basement, but dude. Have you stopped trying?
Because I’m not really mean, and certainly not because I couldn’t figure out a way to post my snarky comment anonymously without investing actual time and effort, I am instead blogging about it.
Blogging: the coward’s way out since the late 1990’s (so sayeth Wikipedia).
