what i'm watching: we heart springfield

Last night we caught a re-broadcast of "The Simpsons" gay marriage episode from earlier this year. It was both hilarious and skewering in the best Simpsons tradition. As the song goes (sung to the tune of "The Banana Boat Song"): "Gaaay-o, it's OK-o... Tie the knot and spend all your dough."

Homer, raking in said dough performing same-sex marriage ceremonies, asks, "What do you call a guy that's gay for a girl?" (Straight!)

In case you haven't seen it, I don't want to give any major spoilers. I was so happy that the character who comes out - despite the conventional plot twist that might save [the character's] straight bacon - stays out.

Read more here and try to catch it if you can. I can't be the only person who saw this 8 months late.

Once of the best episodes ever! I'm inspired to send away for a minister's license (or whatever they're called) just so I can gay marry people.

despite the fact that I've seen every other episode 200 times, I have yet to see this one.

Thanks for not giving it away.
