Season 3 - Episode 12
8F10 : I Married MargeDir: Jeffrey LynchWriter: Jeff MartinAirdate: December 26, 1991

So here’s a fun fact: Starting tomorrow, FXX will air every episode of The Simpsons, in order. Pretty cool, right? Well, even moreso, because the episodes they air will be completely uncut, meaning scenes that haven’t aired in decades due to syndication cuts will be on the air. 
Oh yeah, to the people who created “The Simpsons: Tapped Out”: Thanks for getting me addicted to a funny Farmville, ya jerks.

FXX has bought rerun rights to 500+ episodes of The Simpsons.

This is really interesting. But not as interesting as the Simpsons-only network which News Corp. was considering about two years ago.

Those of you who stopped watching The Simpsons thirteen years ago (and heard that the voice actress who plays Edna Krabappel sadlypassed away in October) should know that Ms. Krabappel is now married to Ned Flanders. In a run-down over at Splitsider, Bradford Evans catalogues the weirder plot developments of the last decade-plus of the series. (h/t Slate)

This is not a man who deserves to be widowed twice. :/

RIP Marcia Wallace (November 1, 1942 - October 25, 2013)

"I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace. She was beloved by all at The Simpsons, and we intend to retire her irreplacable character." - Al Jean (showrunner of The Simpsons)

RIP Mrs K.

Marcia and Lou. I’m heartbroken.

Powerful combination of story and images. And quite sad. :/

Did John Kerry just “Pull a Homer” on Syria?

It was an off-the-cuff argument, sure. But when the Secretary of State suggested theoretically that Syria could hand over its chemical weapons stockpile to the rest of the world if it wanted to avoid a conflict, it wasn’t considered a workable solution, even by Kerryuntil Russia bit. Now, while there’s still work to be done to make a deal happen, and it’s not a sure thing, it certainly seems like Kerry did something (though he’s playing it off) which has the potential to live up to the standard suggested in this Simpsons clip above.

Matt Groening’s mom recently passed, though she fortunately lived a full life. But check out the obit. Any names you recognize here? Hint: Marge is short for Margaret. (ht @pourmecoffee)
EDIT: Here’s a story on the obit from The Oregonian.

D’oh! USPS Stuck With 682 Million Unsold Simpsons Stamps - Bloomberg

Not nearly as popular as the T-shirts were circa 1990. Didn’t even know these existed. :/

"Pulling a Thaddeus": Why Thaddeus McCotter is our generation’s Homer Simpson

In a classic 1991 episode of “The Simpsons,” a phrase was coined which is still relevant to this day. To “pull a Homer,” to succeed despite idiocy, is one of Homer Simpson’s greatest assets, evidence you can still win simply by being likable. Now-former Rep. Thaddeus McCotter is likable. He quotes Dylan! He plays guitar! He’s a good, self-deprecating, witty writer! He was a popular congressman! And even if you don’t like his politics, you can tell he’s a nice guy. But you can see “bad idea” from a mile away every time he steps into the public eye. When he ran for president, you wanted to cover your eyes. When he wrote that open letter, you wanted call him up and say, “take a step back, bro.” And when he quit Congress today, you just knew it was totally avoidable. So, with this in mind, we’d like to coin a term. To “pull a Thaddeus”: To do stupid, self-defeating things despite obviously being a smart human being. To shoot yourself in the foot despite having otherwise masterful aim. So, next time your future lawyer friend decides it’s a great idea to get a Stryper tattoo on his neck, you know what to say. “Don’t pull a Thaddeus, bro.” And he’ll know what you mean.
