While this section in the infobox shows up on the edit page, it doesn't show up on the actual page (or at least it doesn't work on my computer). Does anyone know how to fix this? Cowmeister88 23:53, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Andrew Dice Clay
Someone added this text as a reference for Krusty xxx stand-up comedy and I think it can be true, but another user classified as vandalism and reverted it. Is it or is it not?
Krusty the Klown appears as a performer in the casino doing an apparently "Adult-Oriented" act. He sings the lines "Herpes bo-berpes fee-fi-fo-ferpes" which disgusts the crowd. This is probably a reference to comedian Andrew Dice Clay who often incorporated explicit versions of nursery rhymes into his stand-up act--ometzit<col> 12:15, 31 March 2007 (UTC)--ometzit<col> 12:15, 31 March 2007 (UTC)
Because I own the season 5 disc I've added a deleted scenes paragraph. Okay? Pacguy19 01:32, 15 July 2007 (UTC)
- I am removing the deleted scenes because they are not relevant to the episode and they are not included on any other episode page. --Simpsons fan 66 10:47, 10 September 2007 (UTC)
Reference to jobless "philosophy majors"
In the episode, Kent Brockman reports, "Scott, things aren't as happy as they used to be down here at the unemployment office. Joblessness is no longer just for philosophy majors. Useful people are starting to feel the pinch."  This appears to be self-mocking humor, since creator Matt Groening is said to have studied philosophy as an undergraduate at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.

- That may be true, but to include it in the article we need a reliable source. Theleftorium 19:46, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

At the end of the episode, Homer claims to once having let in an escaped lunatic, because he was dressed like Santa. I remember seeing a film from like the 60's, years ago, where a little girl lets in an escaped lunatic (because he was dressed as Santa) and the escapee kills the girl's mother. Homer's line seems to be a reference to that, however, I don't remember the name of the movie. All I remember is that the film was about a group of recently deceased, who got together and told how they died.--User:coq87rougeCoq87rouge (talk) 22:19, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
