No fat chicks. No, really.

nofatchicks

Believe it or not, The Simpsons has a storied history of hating on fat chicks. This is the second third in a series of three four such jokes, preceeded by Homer’s “no fat chicks” billboard remark in “Marge vs. The Monorail” and his “No Fat Chicks” t-shirt in “Marge on the Lam,” and followed by the song “Minimum Wage Nanny” in “Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious.”  It’s entirely possible that other “no fat chicks” references have popped up elsewhere since Season 8, but hopefully no one who really appreciates what we do here at Dead Homer Society gives a shit.  (Thanks for the correction, Charlie.)

Alcohol and God, a winning combination

Reverend Lovejoy, hittin' the sauce on the job

Another Wednesday, another sight gag: two out of these six vignettes are explored in some detail, but there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gem hidden in the upper right. Yep, there’s Reverend Lovejoy, hittin’ the sauce on the job. Classic.

Tell me more…

Tell me more...

In The Simpsons’ colorful history of improbable and hilarious video game ideas, surely the “My Dinner with André” game Martin plays at Noiseland Arcade takes the cake. For a game based on a movie that consists almost entirely of two guys having a conversation at a restaurant, the controls are both completely appropriate and hilariously pretentious.

(This, by the way, is the first in a series of “Sight Gags” posts we’ll be doing, highlighting the little bits of visual joy that make The Simpsons such a rewarding show to watch. Today seemed as good a day as any to kick it off, so enjoy!)
