Makeup Quote of the Day

“Bart, it’s not like I’m asking you to give blood for free. That would be crazy. You’re a little young to understand this, but when you save a rich man’s life, he showers you with riches! Don’t you know the story of Hercules and the Lion?” – Homer Simpson
“Is it a Bible story?” – Bart Simpson
“Yeah, probably. Anyway, once upon a time there was a big, mean lion who got a thorn in his paw. All the village people tried to pull it out. But nobody was strong enough. So, they got Hercules. And Hercules used his mighty strength, and . . . bingo! Anyway, the moral is, the lion was so happy, he gave Hercules this big…thing…of riches.” – Homer Simpson
“How did a lion get rich?” – Bart Simpson
“It was the olden days!” – Homer Simpson
“Oh.” – Bart Simpson

Tuesday Evening Cartoons

Blood Feud18 “Bart, take a letter.  Dear Mr. Burns, I’m so glad you enjoyed my son’s blood, and your card was just great.” – Homer Simpson

Liver spots are one of those undeniable signs of aging that remind us and others that the robust younger years are far in the past.  Mr. Burns, being very far indeed from his days as a barefoot boy with cheek of tan, has quite a lot of them, something The Simpsons liked to have fun with, most famously when Marge catches Burns coming out of the shower in “Brush with Greatness”. There’s another liver spot joke in Season 2, however, that’s so subtle that I doubt I noticed it for years after I first saw it.  In “Blood Feud”, Homer angrily dictates a letter to Burns after receiving only a lousy card in exchange for saving the old man’s life:

You are a senile, buck-toothed old mummy, with bony girls arms, and you smell like an elephant’s butt!

Later, after Burns reads the letter and decides to have Homer fired, he’s ranting to Smithers about the contents: Blood Feud17

Senile, eh?  Buck-toothed, am I?  Bony arms, are they?  Liver spots, did I?

Notice the addition?  Homer doesn’t mention the liver spots; Burns does.  It’s the show taking a quick, barely perceptible potshot at Burns that you really have to be paying attention to catch.  Burns doesn’t just have liver spots, despite his fearsome visage, he’s actually sensitive about them.
