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.

Because the Internet exists for the sole purpose of making ordered non-topical lists about our favorite things.
Three quick notes before we begin:
1) None of this is actual criticism; it’s nerdy, “Genius At Work”-shirted nitpicking purely so we Simpsons-obsessives can talk about The Simpsons. Think of it like a Bible Study, but with more important source material.
2) The examples here are confined to seasons 2-10.
3) This list doesn’t include out-of-character moments where the out-of-characterness is the joke itself, like when Homer puts on glasses and instantly recites the Pythagorean Theorem. This is a very important distinction (in a very important internet list).
