As always, credit to Dave for the hemoglobin.
For your viewing displeasure this evening, Zombie Simpsons is going to make another blind stab at relevance by having Marge and the kids blog about food. Simpsons Channel didn’t have a preview image, but there was a YouTube video in which Homer gets hurt and has his pants fall down. I laughed at this; not because it’s funny, but because it reminded me of The Critic. When Jay Sherman goes to Los Angeles to become a screen writer, he got hired to write “Ghostchasers 3”. While having a meeting with the studio, this happens:
Sherman (very sarcastically): Now, is there anything you feel could be improved from the first two films?
Suit #1 (earnestly): Ghostchaser underpants didn’t sell as well in Mexico as we’d hoped.
Suit #2 (eagerly): Maybe you could have the black guy’s pants fall down in Tijuana.
Sherman (desperately unhappy): I understand.
I know Zombie Simpsons is protected from that kind of network horseshit, but it’s amusing to think of someone telling them that Treehouse of Horror isn’t trending on Twitter as well as they’d hoped, and could they please make an episode about the internet and have Homer’s pants fall down?
