THE SIMPSONS

Several people have written to point out that last night on The Simpsons, the Simpsons visited  a failing shopping mall, in which there was a bookstore called.... Rock Bottom Remainders. (Yes, this blog was watching.) Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons, is a founding member of the band and still performs with us sometimes. He is a great guy, and quite possibly the worst singer on the planet earth, except for some of the other band members.

Donuts, what your band needs is more donuts...Is there anything they can't do?

they should have had talk like a pirate day on the simpsons...that would have been cool

Arrrrrr....doh......!

So Matt Groeninng sings worse than Richard Harris, the guy who left his cake out in the rain?

Edgar, that was uncalled for. Go sit in the corner and write one hundred times, longhand:

"I will not subject the bloglits to earworms before breakfast."

Dave, I was watching as well and noticed that. Pretty neat!

No freaking way! You know Matt Groening? Could you introduce us? That is sooooo cool. It's like we're all just one person away from knowing someone famous. Dave is the best.

CH, he should do it like Bart Simpson, on the chalkboard!

Brad, instead of six degrees of separation we've only got ONE, The Blog...

Even better. But he has to wear the dunce hat. I'm still infected, dammit.

Here's a little ditty
'bout Akbar and Jeff
Two funny fezzed kids who ain't got much of nothin' left
Their boss creator went on to bigger things
Now Bart and Lisa are the household names.

Whoa, yeah, life in hell
Man that orange salad dressing sure was swell
Oh yeah, life was hell
At least the tofu hut's still doing well.

Oh yeah

Sorry it the only song I know, and I'll never have that recipe again. Oh No!

Slow learner, eh, Edgar?

Bloglits, we'll assemble at 1300 for the ceremony. Be sure to bring your TPeashooters™ and a good supply of the cheap stuff.

Actually, stevie, I think Groening still draws Life in Hell - it appears weekly in my local fishwrapper.

Edgar!!!


GET. IT. OUT. OF. MY. HEAD.!!!!

Dave! You know SO many people! You must roll on each and every one to collect their scents, then all us bloglits can rub ourselves on YOU to spread the wealth!

*Why did Dave just run away screaming?????*

Cowabunga, Rock Bottom dudes!!


"Actually, stevie, I think Groening still draws Life in Hell - it appears weekly in my local fishwrapper."

CH -

I guess that means I'm finally growing up. OHHHH NOOOO!!!!

[I so childishly want Dave to show that to Matt. I was reading Life in Hell before I even heard of Dave. I think. Who remembers anymore.]

So dave, does the band still practice in your mothers basement? And does she still think that smell is insense?

one of my favorite dexchanges on the Simpsons:

Flanders (after building a religious theme park): So, what do you think?

Captain : Arrr, she blows.

exchanges

I think the Remainders are

"Hankerin for a Spankerin"

*pig snork* at lance

This is a new millenia, so they are drinking milk, not jokingtoking it up.

Wouldn't donut holes be more appropriate for the Rock Bottom Remainders?

Rock Bottom Remainders = Wayne's World

"You must roll on each and every one to collect their scents, then all us bloglits can rub ourselves on YOU to spread the wealth!"

OK, but only if Dave uses a liberal dose of Secret.

P-poo, you are such a twisted sister.

Dave - do you know Kevin Bacon? Six degrees and all that...

Dave Barry - Big Trouble - Tim Allen - Toy Story - Tom Hanks - Apollo 13 - Kevin Bacon.

3 degrees

Stevie w: So do you have an eraser pig on your desk?

You have some mighty powerful connections don't you Dave? :) That is awesome.

Ha! Yell at him.

"So do you have an eraser pig on your desk?"

Leetie -

I can tell by the way you're looking at me I'm supposed to get that, but I (embarrassedly) don't. What does that mean? BTW, the answer is no. Do you?

*snicker*

Yes.

Groening did a "Work is Hell" book. Making an eraser pig out of some push pins and one of those pink parallelogram-shaped erasers was one way to kill some time. I embellished mine with a curly paperclip tail and ears. He's my little buddy.

Leetie, might I gently suggest that you need to get out more?

*sigh*

At least I have my pig.

*pets the pig*
*makes it walk across desk*
*giggles*

I think I have that book somewhere, leetie. I like the mug that says "Work Is Hell." When you drain your coffee you see Binkie(? - man it's been a long time) inside finger-wagging and saying "Now get back to work!"

Too bad I missed that. I didn't see the first few minutes of the episode.
Matt Groening is great. Another one of my left handed heroes. Speaking of that...I had to write an essay in World History today, and I had graphite all over my hand afterwards.
I like drawing in Matt Groening's style. It gets me through Precalc, at least...

Hello, i would like to know if anyone have a picture of the "work is hell" coffe mug, qith binky inside saying "Now get back to work", i want that mug but i cant find it anywhere jeje
