Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/

Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three:
1) Bart gets an F
2) Homers Enemy
3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why.

Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society.

Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships.

This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does.

And his death is a great ending, Homer continues in the system with his actions since he cares not for the boss "making" his precious money, while Frank takes the approach that work is a virtue and mocks homer only to get killed accidentally when taking his mockery to the extreme.

Perhaps I'm looking into it too much, or I'm viewing it backwards, what do you think /anime/ or /hobby/ if this is moved?

Before reading your post I though Homer's Enemy was overrated. I think, given that Matt Groening was kind of a punk, so he was a bit leftist (dunno who came up with the episode though), it may have been intentional.

My favorite Simpsons episode is probably the Treehouse of Horror that had Homer 3D. That was pretty cool.

Technically this goes in >>>/hobby/ but frankly I don't mind. I'm not a big fan of Simpsons but I loved the couch gags and my favorite character is Apu, the man is neat, both embracing and subverting the Indian-immigrant stereotype.
The hatred for his character by liberals is laughable.

I don't understand this fucking meme/joke. What is even the relevance?

 No.5541

>>5496
It's a hidden dirty joke from a Simpsons episode that became a forced /tv/ meme. The joke itself is funny, while the meme has lost any comedy it once had, and now the humor comes from it being used as a cringy inside joke.

There's a store called "Sneed's Feed and Seed (formerly Chuck's)". So as you can see, "Sneed" rhymes with "feed" and "seed". The implication here is that, when Chuck was the owner, it was called "Chuck's Fuck and Suck" because those two verbs rhyme with his name.

Ooooooh, wow, that's… such a convoluted joke, you have to be obsessed with that kind of shit to have it come to mind IMO, this "Fuck and Suck" shit didn't even cross my mind from seeing that.

To be honest, it's funnier if you understand it by yourself, explaining the joke in such detail makes it unfunny.

It's just phoneme substitution. It's something everyone learns as children. Dr Suess is famous for it.

I like drawing characters from other series as Simpsons characters. Partly because I don't think most people do a good job. But the Misato and everything in your pic is pretty good.

>God, I've had to work hard every day of my life, and what do I have to show for it? This briefcase, and this haircut! And what do you have to show for your lifetime of sloth and ignorance? Everything! A dream house! Two cars! A beautiful wife! A son who owns a factory! Fancy clothes and lobsters for dinner! And do you deserve any of it? No! You're what's wrong with America, Simpson. You coast through life, you do as little as possible, and you leech off of decent, hardworking people like me. Heh, if you lived in any other country in the world, you'd have starved to death long ago. You're a fraud. A total fraud!

As one of the people that lobbied for this board back on roulette, the Western threads for the Simpsons and other stuff are from before the East-West division of content was more enforced.
