I just realized that the show is 22 years old, there have now been more awful seasons than good ones. If I were the kind of person who got depressed at unimportant bullshit, I'd be depressed right now. At least the part not done by the usual Simpsons braintrust was good.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Well, thank goodness you're not that kind of person!

In a world in which some people actually noticed the 50th anniversary of the Flintstones, I think the Simpsons are still kind of amusing.

Xenocide
So far this season has had two legitimately good, funny episodes, and one atrociously bad one.

That's about a typical ratio these days. Of course the internet, being what it is, will fixate on the bad one.

Who or what is a Banksy?
Spoonybard
A British graffiti artist of some renown

bac
You've most likely seen some of his work referenced in other pop culture. Parachuting rodents.

Banksy is rhetor, if there is even such a thing.

revdrew
It's funny cuz it's true.
Caminante Nocturno
You stupid fuckers can't even face the cost of your own greed without someone wrapping it up in a shitty joke.

And yet, ironically, you spend 90% of your disposable income on children's cartoons and related products.

Meerkat
You fool. In Japan all the animation is done by suave, millionaire eskimo spies, who toss the cells out of their Ferraris as they seduce russian spy ladies and drink martinis and smoke long, thin cigarillos through a filter made of manly man filter material (not that sissy stuff you Americans use).

Mancakes
Not moe enough for you? Wait, there is a Moe.

caminante speaks for the workers! too long have they been kept from creepy anime fetish stuff open only to the owning class! the means of tentacle porn production must come to be owned by the mode of tentacle porn production! VIVA CAMINANTE!

wtf japan
As if facing it directly would compel any of us to DO something about it.

Embrace the stupidity. We're already incorrigibly evil, but, because of our stupidity and hatred of discomfort, we will eventually atrophy into something incapable of maintaining control. Ripeness is all.

Anaxagoras
Fight the power!

The kid who puts the cels in the vat was probably really freaked out when he saw his face on some of them.

Innocent Bystander
VERY SUBTLE.
Xenocide
1989: A young Matt Greoning refuses to sign a contract to turn his cartoon shorts into a prime time series unless the network agrees in writing to never send him any notes or try to veto the show's content. Fox, desperate for a hit show, agrees.

1995: "I've held many jobs: whale hunter, seal clubber, president of the Fox Network."

1996: "You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually I never even noticed."

1998: "'We'll fake it and sell it to the Fox network.' 'They'll buy anything!' "

2000:" 'Ten thousand dollars? Bart, you've saved the Fox network!' 'Wouldn't be the first time.' "

2010: Matt's show depicts Fox as a slave labor camp where dreams go to die.

I thought nobody knows who bansky really is. How did they contact him to do this?
thirteen3seven
He has an agent.

Gommorrah
started out good, then got too wacky to really hit
Cube
The opening seemed just like normal one, it was the couch gag that was different.

I remember there was some resentment somewhere in the 10 first seasons about doing a joke about the Korean animators working like slaves, but I guess it's OK when Banksy does it.
Xenocide
They can get away with it once per decade. Just watch, Season 35 is going to have some side-splitting Korean animator jokes.

Riskbreaker
Kill this show already, with fire.
Chalkdust
where do I get one of those seal head tape dispensers?
fedex
I think its a dolphin

pastorofmuppets
That sound you hear is 5000 bloggers writing "slave labor is the funniest thing they've done since season ____" and all hitting send at once.
jimmicampkin
Nice intro. Still been shit since Season 6/7 though.
memedumpster
Banksy has done some neat as hell graffiti and made some wonderful social statements. That was long ago and he is no longer relevant or entertaining.
Corman's Inferno
Just like the Simpsons! Hence, this is perfect.

Udderdude
Certainly they can find a better use for a unicorn than that.
pastorofmuppets
He wasn't always that haggard.

Crap, Fox took it down already. CENSORSHIP!

Interestingly, some Banksy graffiti ended up in Portland, Oregon little while back. Matt Groening grew up in Portland, Oregon and named a lot of The Simpsons characters after things like Portland streets (for example, Flanders). Coincidence?

fluffy
Lovejoy, too.

Turrican
Endut! Hoch Hech!

Banksy is a glibmonging shitwizard
