Lately it seems like the only funny parts to the newest Simpsons have been the opening 10 minutes (before they get into the REAL story). Homer trapped on Costington's escalator: "SO Many Shoppers! Damn this resilient Economy!!!" And keeping up with the "out-dated" jokes over the past 3 episodes, I submit Barts line: "Why did you kiss me? Are you lookin' to do the Bartman"
