Haiku Hump Day - The Simpsons!



Trevor (Tami's friend) made an interesting observation yesterday about transforming from Bart to Homer during the 20 year span of the series. So I thought now would be a damn good time to celebrate the first family of cartoon animation on HHD. Whether or not you still watch religiously, the Simpsons must have made you laugh during the past 2 decades. Now it's time to return the favor by making ME laugh, using 17 syllables.

So hey JSP,
still have that Simpson's chess set?
Grampa is the best!

A tasty duo
Donuts and nuclear waste
green glowing goodness

When Homer said Doh!
We could all relate to it
it was so human

Trevor (Tami's friend) said...

Death on The Simpsons
Maude, Bleeding Gums, Grimes
Miss most: Phil Hartman

Politics Mirrored:
TV Debates, Recalls, Bush,
Clinton/Dole, Gays wed

Has it Jumped the shark?
jockey trolls? Mary Poppins?
Nah - think of ribwich!

A hard working man
He liked to be called "Grimey"
His life was unfair

No shark jumping here
But the golden age has passed
Seasons 4 through 8

Johnny Sweatpants said...

1st season's no good
Homer's voice is annoying
No laughs to be found

My biggest complaint
Any time that Lisa sings
It drives me mental

Barnie gave up booze
I came close to boycotting
Glad I hung in there

JPX said...

My favorite line,
"The goggles, they do nothing"
Well, one of the best

I hate the clip shows
Who sits and watches old clips?
Okay, yes, I do

The earliest shows
Were just Tracey Ullman shorts
They were pretty lame

JPX said...

The best episodes
Only focus on Homer
The worst ones? Lisa.

HandsomeStan said...

Decline of series
Inversely proportional
With Skinner's voice pitch

Another pinpoint
Armand Tamzarian - ehh
Mark the decline there

HandsomeStan said...

Frink, Otto, Barney
All parts of my inner me
Along with Duffman

Best of Comic Guy:
"Yes, and one with extra cheese,"
"The answer is 'fries'"

HandsomeStan said...

The law-talkin guy
Lionel Hutz was brilliant
May he rest in peace

Reduced to tears by
6-foot sandwich/Duff Gardens
and Mr. Sparkle

JPX said...

Linda Ronstadt sang
"Senor Plow no es macho"
Her shining moment

JPX said...

Sigh, "Do the Bart Man"
Written by Michael Jackson
Not his best moment

Come to think of it
"Lisa, it's Your Birthday" stunk
Also by Jackson

I love The Simpsons
But, "The Simpsons Sing the Blues"?
Who would want that?

JPX said...

Homer Simpson's God
"Jebus". That always cracked me up
"Oh save me, Jebus!"

AC said...

cletus and brandine
are they siblings or spouses?
probably they're both.

closeted smithers
totally in love with burns
i say they do it

what could go wrong with
gorging to your heart's content
on discounted shrimp?

JPX said...

The Simpsons cast makes,
$400,000 per show
Who says talk is cheap?

50PageMcGee said...

Poor Nancy Cartwright
Twilight Zone death. Got Bart role.
Not poor anymore

50PageMcGee said...

High Homer - VP
Friendlier, raking in dough
We should all be high!

50PageMcGee said...

Season 1 - not good
"The Honeymooners" knock off
Flintstones were better

Octopunk said...

Best episode ev
Sideshow Bob stars in Cape Fear
All those goddamn rakes

Octopunk said...

Or maybe Bobo
Maggie tug-o-war, beats Burns
Newsman says "hot scoop!"

Octopunk said...

Or perhaps "Streetcar!"
Bart swinging from the rafters
"Look I'm Blanche Dubois!"

The night that first aired
"Coming up next" showed that clip
Jebus, me confused

Octopunk said...

Green tentacles? Check.
Space helmet? Check. Big eye? Check.
Kang and Kodos rule

Octopunk said...

No beer, no TV
Make Homer something something
Good! Kill family

Octopunk said...

You need the accent
"Da goggles, dey do nuhthing!"
Yeah, that's a good one

Octopunk said...

Dig professor Frink
Who thought up catchphrase "guh-HAY!"
Jerry Lewis? Oh.

Octopunk said...

Extra fat Homer
Most hilarious sight gag
Him in that muumuu

Octopunk said...

Thrill junkie Marge S
Rides shopping cart into cheese
Just like the police
