Skinner’s “Principals Do It 9 Months A Year” Apron (Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song – Season 5)
When Principal Skinner loses his job, we see him at home wearing a “Principals Do It 9 Months A Year” novelty apron, which seems like an oddly racy choice for a guy who’s so straight-laced, he doesn’t even understand the Mad Magazine slogan “Up with mini-skirts!”, he forbids his army platoon to sing a chant about a lady with a hole in her underpants, and he refuses to even say the word “ass” (though he will think it under telepathic circumstances).
Unless, of course, the reverse-implication here is that Skinner doesn’t even get that there’s innuendo in the apron and thinks it’s a very literal slogan about principals’ jobs. This reading is absurd and hilarious, but might not totally be out of the realm of possibility for the man so free of whimsy, he once delivered the line “The times they are a-becoming quite different,” and who took great pleasure in the sound of his uniformed student body blinking in unison.
