I loved the "outing the gay one" joke. 4 guys who get drunk together almost every night? Use your imagination. Great gag. In fact I loved all those jokes Tomacco listed. His name is Snake Jailbird, I don't see anything wrong with that. Also the bats thing... I don't know what you are expecting. After 17 years, you should have a 6th sense for a typical Simpsons fakeout gag. So are you saying they should just stop doing them now? I saw an alternate response coming too, but didn't laugh at the "twist" of it, moreso the content of the punchline.
