Reading Digest: Saturday Supplemental

Brother from the Same Planet12

“After sixteen glorious seasons, the Green Bay faithful bid farewell to Brian Bartlett Starr.” – TV Announcer
“Hmm, I keep thinking I’m forgetting something.” – Homer Simpson
“Bart!  Bart!  Bart!  Bart!” – Green Bay Faithful

As I went to post yesterday’s Reading Digest, I had that nagging feeling in the back of my head that I was forgetting something.  As is often the case, it was there because I was indeed forgetting something.  In this case, two somethings that were e-mailed to me and which managed to get lost in the shuffle:

Tales From The First Decadian Simpsonites – From commenter Thrillho comes this excellent link to minor internet darling Mara Wilson’s tale of television future:

Then came the MacFarlanders. They were not as fierce as the Parkerstoners, nor did they have the strength of beliefs. What they did have, was their speed, their stamina, and their talent for distraction. One would lob a popular cultural artifact at a Parkerstoner, and the other would ambush him. “They were pillagers,” the Elderlisa said.

Ha!  The whole thing isn’t that long, and it’s quite clever. 

The 25 Best Onetime "Simpsons" Characters – And from our old friend Conor comes this perfectly cromulent list.  There are a lot of good quotes and nothing past Season 8.  (But, come on, no Brad Goodman?)

Just as a reminder, Google Alerts can’t be everywhere, so if you see something Simpsons related on-line, please drop me a note.  I usually remember to include them.

    Mara Wilson is working on a novel. I hope it is as clever and well-written as that story. It was funny too!

    Does any one want to bet that there will be a reference to Edward Snowden next season?
