So many alcoholics.

Cue up an old episode of The SImpson's from before the era of Caller ID. Bart calls Moe's Bar.

Moe: "Moe's Bar, Moe speaking."

Bart: "I'm looking for Al. Al. Coholic."

Moe (calling out): "Is there an AlCoholic here?"

Bart: (laughing, hangs up)

Moe: "I'm gonna find that little punk"

That was a funny one. I saw it a few times.

I think the most memorable SImpsons episode I can think of is the one called "Radio Bart". It clearly parodies the October 1987 rescue of Baby Jessica McClure in Midland, TX. Bart lowers a radio down an abandoned well. Then he calls for help into a nearby transmitter as he watches from a hidden vantage point as some innocent person walks by.

Suddenly the "rescue" of the kid in the well becomes a media 3 ring circus.

I missed the well episode.

It's probably floating around various corners of the web to this day.

Why did they topple Lincoln?
He is afraid of losing next month.

I don’t know. Lincoln was anti racism and slavery. Doesn’t make sense.

Right. Makes me wonder if the rioters were never practicing Jews, Christians or anything else of a well known worldwide religion, unless...?
