I always found the Mel Gibson episode self-important and obviously kissing Mel's arse at any time.

The Shary Bobbins episode is a classic. The opening third is one of the strongest in the shows run. Had me hurting from laughter when I rewatched it a few months back.

  • Krusty Komedy Klassic
  • The dog attacking Krusty's nose which looks like the red ball it is trained to get
  • Grandpa using the remote and then the iron as a phone
  • Mad About Shoe ("You're not going to like out NYPD Shoe sketch. It's the same thing")
  • Former President Gerald Ford: BORING!
  • Marge with Homer's hair
  • "I'll take up smoking and give it up" "Good for you son"
  • "The south shall come again!"
  • "Wait a minute Marge, I saw Mrs Doubtfire. This is a man in drag!"
  • ♪ MIGHT I ADD-- NO FAT CHICKS ♪

add in "so you work for Carl eh? to the Shary Bobbins episode good bits

For clunkers, literally a significant majority of Groundskeeper Willie is subpar, even in the classic era, barely ever funny

Principal Skinner: Willie, go into the vent and get him.
Groundskeeper Willie: What!? Have ye gone waxy in yer beester? I canna fit in a wee vent, ye croquet-playin' mint-muncher!
Principal Skinner: Grease yourself up and go in, you... guff-speaking work-slacker.
Groundskeeper Willie: Ooh. Good comeback.

Defense rests.

Oh there you go, that's my contribution to this thread: "cheese-eating surrender monkeys". Not funny.

the idea that Willie has been roped in to teach French is quite funny though. Even though we can't expect Americans to know about the Auld Alliance and that Francophobia is really an English thing.
