Marge started the joke, then acted like she was put off by the whole thing.
God I hate how bad this show has become.
This is truly the Family Guy setup right here:
"Hey look! There's (insert random celebrity/movie/pop culture reference appearing out of nowhere)"
*cue to flashback, and/or attempt at witty comment
While there were pop culture references in the Simpsons they were never the selling point of the show, neither the "main" jokes. They would also be more casually introduced, not just "hey, look, ain't that a famous movie/celebrity/pop star reference?" One of the many diseases that plague the show was indeed the celebrity walk of shame, the episode with Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin would be, i think, the starting point of the show shoving down celebrities for the sake of it.
In old simpsons style there were random observations but they related to the story in some way. In this scene it seems that they just threw in a joke that had nothing to do with the rest of the episode.
Also: They already did Ayn Rand years ago, with the Ayn Rand daycare center where Maggie was put in.
I love that The Simpsons is terrible nowbecause if it wasn't then every video uploaded here would be The Simpsons
Not if Fox has anything to do with it.
Demanding whole shows be taken off of YouTube? I get that. Demanding clips of favorite gags be removed? That's kind of self-defeating. All it can do is help promote the program. They did the same thing with sites that hosted Simpsons WAV files for computer event noises, too, which made even less sense.
Groening took his name out of the credits for the Jay Sherman crossover episode, but not for this one.
This joke was better in Futurama.
"Nothing but crusty old porn magazines and copies of Ayn Rand"
Horrible attempt at humor
Forced beyond belief.
