Today, I seem to have even less inspiration than advertised in the title! I am trying little "get started" tricks and cues. I have written and then erased a couple of false starts. Then I said to myself, "Thank goodness for Tara and her Eclectic Taraday Calendars! And look! Today is "Eat My Shorts" Day! Celebrate The Simpsons! Well, I can do that. I used to love The Simpsons. I still do, in theory, although I haven't watched it regularly for the past couple of years. No particular reason.
Here are some random Simpson quotes:
Ralph: Me fail English? That’s unpossible.
Lionel Hutz: This is the greatest case of false advertising I’ve seen since I sued the movie “The Never Ending Story.”
Troy McClure: Don’t kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, he’d eat you and everyone you care about!
Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.
Sideshow Bob: I’ll be back. You can’t keep the Democrats out of the White House forever, and when they get in, I’m back on the streets, with all my criminal buddies.
Homer: When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun.
Milhouse: Remember the time he ate my goldfish? And you lied and said I never had goldfish. Then why did I have the bowl, Bart? *Why did I have the bowl?*
Lionel Hutz: Well, he’s kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace “accidentally” with “repeatedly” and replace “dog” with “son.”
Comic Book Guy: Last night’s “Itchy and Scratchy Show” was, without a doubt, the worst episode *ever.* Rest assured, I was on the Internet within minutes, registering my disgust throughout the world.
Homer: I’m normally not a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me, Superman.
Homer: Save me, Jeebus.
Comic Book Guy: Oh, loneliness and cheeseburgers are a dangerous mix.
Homer: You don’t like your job, you don’t strike. You go in every day and do it really half-assed. That’s the American way.
I actually found these here and just pulled out a few very choice ones...there are many, many more.
So, yay for The Simpsons and all the frosty choco-late hilarity!
Here be some Old Skool Simpsons!
