Tonight's Simpsons episode was excellent. I laughed out loud several times.

The Aljazeera reference was just icing on the cake.

I caught the first half...and I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't suck -- a rarity, these last few season.

Michele,

The last two lines represented the WHILE point of the show.

Something like: "Dad, we can go to an R-rated movie? Can I take a laser pointer?"

Homer: "Why should I care?"

In other words, they fight for family values. But, in the end, nobody really cares about them, really.

The WHILE point = The WHOLE point.

Obviously.

I didn't find tonight's episode funny at all, of course I did change the channel disgustedly when the babies were rioting. I don't know what happened, the Simpsons were funny last year and the many years before that.

The Raffi stuff was strangely hilarious - possibly becuase we sold some of his albums when I was working retail. That farking Whale song is still stuck in my head, waiting to crawl out everyonce in a while.

And Michelle, Homer's commercial was just priceless. "I am Rudolph Guliani. Do my will." I mean - Guliani? It was so wonderfully random.

Gotta love Marge at the end: "Looks like everything's back to the way it was, which is the only way it should ever be."

The Raffi think reminded me of my not to distant past trip to see the damn Wiggles live on a Sunday morning and the way my nephew gets about the Wiggles.

Talking of Aljazeera, I was reading this story earlier about another reporter being sacked.
Only mildly interesting until I saw the name of the Aljaz spokesperson "Jihad Ballout"
Then I came over all schoolkid and had me a giggle.

The link I forgot.

Last night's episode was hilarious. The past few seasons of The Simpsons have been mediocre at best, but I've found myself laughing a few times in most of the episodes this season, making me really happy that the show seems to be getting itself out of its few year slump.
