    It's also one of the more subtle jokes on the Simpsons, which are always favourites of mine
    We got no food, we got no jobs, our PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!

    Wow, pretty nice subtle joke, along the lines of "Sneed's Seed and Feed (formerly Chuck's)".

    Though I don't really get why he was saying those things in the first place, is that some kind of kids' game I never heard of?

    I always liked this exchange from "The Canine Mutiny"...

    Bart: I'm goin' out to get the dog back.
    Homer: The good dog or the bad dog?
    Bart: The bad dog.
    Homer: Oh, good.

    I take it you're unfamiliar with Chester Gould's Dick Tracy character?

    I love this scene from "Last Temptation of Krust":

    Homer: Take that you greedy fat cats! Marge give me your purse.
    Marge: Here's forty-two dollars, it's everything I have. Go home and bury it in the yard.
    Lisa: I love you, Mom.

    In a similar vein -

    Lisa: Ew! Mom, this whole thing is really creepy. Are you sure you won't talk to Dad?
    Marge: Mmm, I'd like to, honey, but I'm not sure how. Your father can be surprisingly sensitive. Remember when I giggled at his Sherlock Holmes hat? He sulked for a week and then closed his detective agency.

    No but it's not the specific names I don't get. I just don't get what he says, "I'm X, now I'm Y, now I'm Z". Makes no sense to me, that's why I asked if it's a game kids play in America.

    You mean when you were a kid, you never pretended you were a famous character for fun? It's like a little kid running around with a towel tied around his neck like a cape, going "Whoosh! I'm Superman!"

    It's kind of hard to explain these kinds of jokes that have their root in stuff that people just do for no apparent reason.

    For me, clearly one of the most underated gags in the simpsons history is the run between Kirk and his boss in Milhouse Divided when he is about to be fired.

    Boss: "Kirk, crackers are a family food maybe single people eat crackers we dont know, frankly, we dont wanna know.......And its a market we could do without!"

    Kirk: "So thats it!? after all these years so long good luck??!"

    Boss: "I don't recall saying good luck"

    My fave joke from Homer the Great, which I never see anyone mention:

    Homer: Number One? What kind of stupid weiner name is that? "Hello, my name is Number One!" ...and so forth.

    I meant specifically that he keeps changing from one character to another. I guess he just has ADD.

    Two great lines from the ranger in 'Mountain of Madness' Probably not the greatest but made me lol

    Ranger with a stern expression: ''Lets just take a moment to humour the children''
    Turns to Bart & lisa with a smile: ''kids -your fathers gonna be JUST FINE''


    Also loved the Rangers 'advert' at the end of the dramatic line '' Well they didn't come here for the mountian music festival... March 14th thru 18th ''

    practically every line from 'mountain of madness' is fantastic, so i guess most of those are underrated...

    Another great one from that episode:

    "I think I won Mr. Burns."
    "Yes, you've won, more than you bargained for."
    "...WooHoo!"

    I will third the seed bell joke. Like many of the underrated jokes, I think much of the humor is in the delivery.

    A few from Bart's Comet:

    Milhouse: Bart, if you have a failing it's that you're always demanding perfection. IF you have a failing.

    Bart: Mom, make me breakfast.
    Marge: (sleepy) There's a stuffed pepper in the trash from last night. Just rinse it good.

    Homer: (after saying the comet will break up) Of course I'm right. If I'm not may we all be horribly crushed from above somehow.

    And when everyone's arguing in the bomb shelter, you can hear Homer saying "Can't you see that I'm hungry?!"

    Marge: Come on Homer, Japan will be fun! You liked "Rashomon"!
    Homer: That's not how I remember it!

    Great line.

    I also love that quote - I was laughing my head off when I followed it to the logical conclusion, and found myself thinking "Can they imply that on TV?"

    I'm a big fan of sight gags. It doesn't matter how many times I've seen "Call of the Simpsons" I still crack up when Homer teaches Bart how to make the trap for the rabbit, and it's catapulted off over the horizon. I always wondered why that didn't happen when we studied survival skills in scouts. . .

    Same episode, Ned's parents: "You gotta help us, Doc! Yeah, we've tried nothin' and we're all out of ideas!"

    Alot of the stuff Chief Wiggum does really cracks me up. Ex: Eating donuts off of loaded gun. Letting all the prisoners out if they promise to come back, etc.

    I love Skinners flash back moments where his memory drifts back to his days in 'Nam and POW days. Probs my fave of these is the time he recalls being made to eat a stew made of fish, vegetables, prawns, and four kinds of rice.

    ''I came close to madness trying to find it here in the States, but they just can't get the spices right! ''

    I also love Dr Nick's bit from 22 Short Films, where he explains his misuse of the cadavers - "I get here earlier when I drive in the carpool lane." When I first saw the episode I had no idea what a cadaver or a carpool lane was so it made no sense whatsoever. Now I get it I find it hilarious.

    Two fantastic subtle jokes! Though I think anyone who gets the Rashomon joke loves it so it's not totally underrated.

    Definitely the seminal "Krusty gets Kancelled" joke.


    The joke that made me a Simpsons fanatic.


    Krusty says, "Bette and I own a race horse together: Krudler!"

    I used to think it was just a silly name given to the horse. Then I realized that it was the melding of Krusty and Midler.

    THEN I realized that the reverse (instead of the beginning of Krusty's name and the end of Midlers) would actually be 'Misty', a very normal name for a horse.

    The writers must have first thought of Misty, then decided that it wouldn't be funny enough, so they went with the totally nonsensical 'Krudler'.

    I think I laughed for days, just like Burns does when he cripples the Irishman in the bumper car. I was laughing in the shower the next morning even.


    Comedy, thy name is Krusty.
