Bart’s Blackboard

Once again, just passing along something I saw over at Daring Fireball.

This is a must for any Simpson’s fan:  Bart’s Blackboard.

Some are mildly funny, while others are downright classic.  One of my favorites is ”I will not defame New Orleans”, which was rushed into production for the next episode following ”A Streetcar Named Marge”, which contained this loving ode:

Long before the Superdome,

Where the Saints of football play,

There’s a city where the damned call home,

Hear their hellish rondelet:

New Orleans!

Home of pirates, drunks, and whores…

New Orleans!

Tacky, overpriced souvenir stores…

If you want to go to hell, you should take a trip

To the Sodom and Gomorrah of the Mississip’:

New Orleans!

Stinking, rotten, vomiting, vile…

New Orleans!

Putrid, brackish, maggotty, foul…

New Orleans!

Crummy, lousy, rancid and rank…

New Orleans!

There were, needless to say, some complaints about the song.
