It’s like looking into a mirror.
An ultra-nerdy look back at some of the less cromulent moments in classic Simpsons episodes.
Mr. Burns dances super-adeptly With Marge’s Mom (Lady Bouvier’s Lover – Season 5)
One of the weirdest sequences in early-Simpsons history (excluding out-of-reality moments likeHomer’s amazing photographic memory) comes in the touching Season 5 episode “Lady Bouvier’s Lover”; At one point, when Grandpa is falling for Marge’s mother on the dance floor, Mr. Burns abruptly cuts in and asks Marge’s mom to dance, then proceeds to swing danceextremely adeptly while Grandpa gives him the frowning of a lifetime.
Mr. Burns is an actual leper who’s physically incapable of giving a thumbs-up or using a bowling alley hand-fan without struggling, but then for one moment, he’s a super-capable dancer who wins over Mrs. Bouvier with his dexterity? I call “balderdash” and/or “pish posh.” Keep reading

Shows like Boy Meets World and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are often mentioned as emblems of 90s programming, but there was nothing more 90s than Charmed. Girl power? Check. Leather pants? Check. A Shannon Doherty meltdown? Check. This show had everything, including magic and searing stupidity. Shannon Doherty was written off the show because she insulted all its fans by saying that it was a show for 11-year-olds, but she was 100% right. Unfortunately, Charmed was produced by the same cheeseball buffoon who made 7th Heaven: Aaron Spelling. And Mr. Spelling didn’t care how dumb his shows were, as long as they made money and involved a lot of actresses in butterfly hairclips. See what other 7 shows made the cut by not being cut.
Bart Sneaks into “Boobarama” (The Boy Who Knew Too Much – Season 5)
One of the more ambiguous aspects of Bart’s character is his wildly varying opinions on women and sexuality; on one hand, he keeps a Playdude under his bed and has a crush on his older babysitter and Reverend Lovejoy’s daughter, but he also resents Milhouse for constantly kissing a girl and also once declares “Why would anyone want to touch a girl’s butt? That’s where cooties come from!”
So when Bart skips school and sneaks into an R-Rated movie (a few episodes after missing out on his friends sneaking into Barton Fink, but before he and his friends sneak into Naked Lunch in a later episode), it’s a little weird to imagine Bart sitting in an empty theater basking in a film called “Boobarama.” But on the other hand, the title “Boobarama” is giggly and perfect. So, uh, in conclusion, isn’t that what we’re all asking in our own lives, “where’s my elephant?” I know it’s what I’ve been asking. Keep Reading

So my junior year of high school, my friends and I were making a video for my English class. We were already a few days past the due date so we needed to finish filming that night. Well, the particular scene we were working on involved all four of us walking down the street wielding guns and swords. We all planned on using obviously fake weapons. My friend didn’t have a fake… but he did have a 12 gauge hunting shotgun. We decided it was good enough and made sure that we did the scene quickly to avoid drawing attention to ourselves. Five minutes after we had finished filming we started to hear sirens in the distance, so we took all of our props and put them inside. We were waiting in my friends house for about two minutes when I decided that it was probably just a coincidence and started to walk outside. Once i walked out the door and past my friends garage I notice a police officer across the street pointing a M1A4 strait at my head and he screams for me to get down and put my hands on my head—so I did. It’s not until I’m down on the ground that I notice around ten more officers all equipped with Kevlar vests, assault rifles and shotguns. There were also three more cars driving up. After a few minutes of questioning and pat-downs the police officers share a laugh with us about the footage that we got earlier that day, and also offered to vouch for us just in case our teacher asked us why we haven’t turned in our video yet.
