I forgot to set my VCR: Simpsons Rock Bottom Retractions

“Hello Homer, This is God…frey Jones from the TV magazine show Rock Bottom” One of the funniest episodes of The Simpsons titled “Homer: Bad Man” also provided one of the funniest jokes that most of us never really saw (at least in it’s original airing). For those who haven’t seen the episode, go F#*K yourself and watch it! It’s comedic gold! I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to snap at you like that, must be all the angel dust I snorted earlier.
