This episode made me wonder[edit]

This episode made me wonder if Iron really does help us play...karmafist 08:35, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

A pedant writes: Iron is the constituent of blood that metabolises oxygen, so yes, it helps us all play......82.0.70.114 10:03, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Question from a Brit[edit]

When Ned calls at The Simpsons he's wearing a T-Shirt that says something like I <heart shape> Bernie, or Bennie. Who is/was Bernie/Bennie? 82.0.70.114 10:03, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

He's wearing a sweater that says "I <3 Webster". Webster (TV series) was an 80s family sitcom where a white couple adopt a black orphan from the streets named Webster. -- goatasaur 10:10, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Sinkhole?[edit]

Various people have added this piece of trivia, but Scorpion keeps removing it whenever anyone puts it in. Why does this keep being removed? I don't see a problem with it at all: it's valid trivia! --ChaosSorcerer91 22:07, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Bedclown.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Bedclown.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Meme worthy?[edit]

Is "Can't sleep, clown will eat me" really considered a meme? From an anthropological POV I'm not really seeing it (not that I'm an anthropologist, it's just where I originally learned the term). If anyone could explain how this is a meme, please discuss. FantajiFan (talk) 04:17, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Couch gag.[edit]

Should it be noted that this episode marks the first apperance of the massive chorus line/circus performers couch gag? It's definitly one of the most used couch gags, added whenever an episode ran short. --Simpsons fan 66 05:24, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Unsourced info from Cultural references[edit]

Homer sings the Cyndi Lauper song "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" as he is walking home from work.[1] The Olympic promotion by Krusty Burger is loosely based on a similar "scratch-and-win" promotion by McDonalds in which McDonald's visitors could win a Big Mac, french fries, a soft drink, or even a cash prize up to $10,000 if Team USA won a medal in the visitor's listed event. McDonald's lost millions on the promotion, as happened to Krusty.

If the whole episode was a story told by Homer and Marge, how did we find out about the bits with Krusty after his commercial? Or for that matter.. when Bart was staying with the Flanderses.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.73.70.113 (talk) 23:17, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Moved from article to talk page, could be moved back in if sourced. Cirt (talk) 16:25, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

GA=[edit]

Congratulations, it's a GA now. Tezkag72 (talk) 02:07, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

"Plot" section, paragraph 1, sentence 1[edit]

"Family" is singular - therefore, the verb form should be "is", not "are".Wordreader (talk) 05:06, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks. :) Theleftorium 16:08, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

(Possible) Reference in Metroid Prime II Echoes[edit]

In Metroid Prime II: Echoes, there is a deceased soldier named G. Haley. When his body is scanned, it says:

"I hear. Them. Everywhere. They're coming. Can't sleep. Ever. They'll eat me. Eat".

http://metroid.wikia.com/wiki/PFC_G._Haley

This might be a stretch, but could this be a reference to being eaten by clowns?

Yeah dude, PowerUserPCDude was here (yeah) (talk) 01:02, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Elizabeth Taylor[edit]

Just a thought, would it be worth adding in that this episode was reaired Sunday April 3rd in honor of Elizabeth Taylor's passing? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.17.66.205 (talk) 03:18, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I dunno...personally I think the reairing was stupid, she says one freakin word! CTJF83 11:55, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Sideshow Mel?[edit]

I was recently watching this episode and noticed that during the Krusty the Clown segment about being the 'offical meat flavoured product of the 1984 olympics' there is a part where Sideshow Mel is lifting a weight and Krusty tickles him with a feather. However as that part is set in 1984 shouldn't is be Sideshow Bob as this is before his incarciration for attempted murder? At the very least it shouldn't be Mel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.46.104.236 (talk) 12:11, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

The Simpsons, along with most animated shows sometimes lack Continuity (fiction). I wouldn't give it any thought. CTJF83 00:50, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
