Didn’t This Show Used to Have Jokes?

Postcards from the Wedge

“Okay Bart, this is the card catalog.  Let’s see . . . golf, anecdotes, Eisenhower and, profession, humor, Japanese obsession with, ah, here it is: putting.” – Lisa Simpson

I just saw the image above over on Simpsons Channel.  For now, just ignore the fact that Bart has a TV in his room even though he doesn’t have amoria phlebitis, notice anything else? Look at the very prominent titles on the spines of the books.  Not one of them is a joke.  Not a single one is even an attempt at a joke, they’re all just straight up titles like “Geography” and “Spelling”.  And yes, there are three (3) books titled “Encyclopedia”.  So not only did they not bother to come up with something funny, they couldn’t even come up with enough straight book titles. 

If ever there was crystal clear evidence of the lack of creativity behind Zombie Simpsons, it’s right there in that stack of books.

    Not to overlook the 3 volumes of Encyclopedia, and the fact that none of them are stacked upside-down.

    Utterly boring. :|

    And I duly note that not one of them is still in their original wrapping.
