“Bart Simpson, you’re late. Go fill out a tardy slip.” – Mrs. Krabappel
“But I’m only, five, ten, twenty . . . forty minutes! That’s pretty damn late.” – Bart Simpson
A number of people sent in links, ideas and actual content this week, but I’m afraid I didn’t have time to get to it. On top of that, I’m several owed e-mails deep. In lieu of all that better stuff, here’s some other internet content. Sure it’s shorter than usual, but it’s also massively late in the day, so I’ve got both halves of “too little, too late” covered.
Simpsons alphabet – You should click Smooth Charlie’s Click of the Week right now. Why are you still reading this? Click. Now. I was going to call out individual letters for brilliance, but this is genius from A to Z.
The Wizard of Oz…In 10 Words – “Someone is charging room service to the company, sir.”
This Weekend – Animated .gif of one of the greatest days in Homer’s life.
Videogames a la simpson – Frink as Gordon Freeman is the highlight here, though Homer in Dead Space is pretty good.
A syllogism – I’m an American, so I know just enough about Canada to find it all tucked away down there on a map, and I know even less about how their politics work. That said, comparing Canadian political parties to The Simpsons and South Park will always get linked on this blog. Even if it refers to a “Principal Snyder”.
That’s Mantegna, not Montana – I’m sorry, were you under the impression that Joe Mantegna isn’t here to redeem us all?
The Simpsons Do Pulp Fiction – Pai Mei probably doesn’t tip.
Matlock Description WIN – I think I’ve seen this before, but that in no way diminishes how awesome it is.
Simpsons Video of the Week: Homer Goes To Hell – Hulu YouTube of exactly what you think it is.
Simpsons – Dignity – Okay, genius, why don’t you draw dignity?
Classic Artwork with a Simpson Spin – Courtesy of our friends at Stay Tooned In (to whom I owe a very overdue e-mail, sorry guys), some excellent fan made artwork. Two of them I’m pretty sure I’ve seen before, but the painting of the kid on the wall is new to me and worth the click all on its own.
May 4, 2011 d’oh, graphic novel – Hmmm:
Outside of kid bloggers and Simpsons fanatics, does anyone really say “cromulent” or “craptacular,” much less “kwyjibo”?
I’ve definitely heard people use “craptacular” without knowing it was on The Simpsons. I don’t know if it came from the show or not, but adding “-tacular” to a lot of things is pretty standard these days. Lord knows I do it.
Unboxing the Past – Box 7 – This is a bunch of pictures of someone’s old stuff, including a set of Simpsons playing cards. I’m linking it because it contains a picture of a molecule model set that, when he reads this, will make Mad Jon’s face tick involuntarily.
D’Oh – Homer figurine photobombs some Star Wars characters. I smiled.
