    1. Same on pocketcasts.
      Heh, glad I eventually came here to the site to see what’s up – I initially thought this was just some sort of prank ‘for the lols’ that they played in putting out that Moe thing instead of a real episode, which I assumed would soon follow.
      Guess not :S

      Atleast we can manually download and listen to the mp3 version here I suppose..

  1. OK, I want to talk about Dark Forces. You describe is as the equivalent of Rogue One in how it tells of how the Death Star plans are stolen. That’s just the first level. The rest of the game is about this Imperial experiment on Dark Troopers, which are more powerful than your average blaster fodder Stormtrooper. Anyway, enjoy your ’90s cartoon.

    1. Dark Forces was very fun. I also got heavily into the sequel, Jedi Knight. That, and X-Wing, were great games, really immersive in the Star Wars universe.

  2. I thought one reason Carlin’s “7 words you can’t say on TV” was so popular, is that it lead to a Supreme Court case on FCC regulating “indecency”.

    1. I wonder if the hosts watched the George Carlin sitcom on Fox back in the day, it must have ran for one season if nobody remembers it.

      I do miss the comedian, as he definitely was not a guy who wantonly dropped words for a few laughs like many “youtubers” or “edgy comedians”, he was definitely a guy committed to the craft, and I would say George Carlin is one of the greatest poets ever.

  3. My favorite Simpsons shitpost ever is Apu handing Homer a copy of Gigantic Asses, with Trump’s picture on the cover.

  4. Milhouse is all high and mighty about having “Krusty” over to his house, but Bart ALREADY did that! And Milhouse was there! And he was so bored he was falling asleep! *I certainly hope somebody got fired for that blunder.*

    Brett’s old description of Krusty’s voice as “the thing you never want to become, but know you probably will” (from episode 100 I think) is very apt for this episode.

    ALSO the guy who’s driving the car carrier trailer REALLY looks like he should have had the Charles Bronson voice.

    1. He doesn’t have the Bronson voice? I hear him saying “Finder’s keepers” in my head whenever I think of that scene.

  5. Love the episode and love the ending of Chris and Hank shouting “OH GOD” at the thought of watching Bart Vs Australia. Looking forward to it!

    1. Kind of odd joke, but it’s true regarding the rampant Xenophobia and racism that pervaded many Western countries back in the good ole days of the most of the 20th century. The Klan was not just “Whites only” but you had to be a certain type of White person because the “ethnic ones” like Irish, Italian, Slavic, Polish, were undesirable. America was literally freaking out about JFK, the CATHOLIC President. Today, the shoe isn’t on the other foot but given to those who can be considered “White”. It’s a rich tapestry of hypocrisy.

      1. The history of racial hate and redefining race throughout the late 1800s and throughout the 1900s is a bizarre and fascinating thing to look into. For instance, Mexicans used to be considered White because of the pre-existing racial categories on the US census.
        Obviously the “ethnic” White races didn’t face the same struggles as say, Blacks or Asians, but they did still face discrimination and hatred.

        1. As I cited earlier, I would say Italians came pretty damn close on some accounts and so did the irish. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Italianism#Violence_against_Italians

          Obviously, nothing is on par with slavery, but definitely on par with lynchings, and I would say the irish faced comparable labor bullshit to the Asian communities on the west coast. There’s a reason they had the irish dig train tunnels instead of slaves, slaves had some value alive, the irish were completely expendable. That’s if you were fortunate to find work at all. Honestly any immigrant group that could only find work on the railways were pretty much the bottom rung of society, in free states anyways.

          But then again, both of these groups got added to white by the end of the last century, so I guess its a wash. I just find it interesting that Italians were more or less treated the way Muslim immigrants are today. Like you said, its an interesting history.

        2. As I cited earlier, I would say Italians came pretty damn close on some accounts and so did the irish. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Italianism#Violence_against_Italians

      2. I would also regarding media, Italians and african americans/black americans are pretty neck and neck for negative or stereotyped portrayal. Just look at Family Guy.. So Chris probably means original disparaged in terms of media portrayal. They only non gangster italians on screen I can think of are Rocky and the fonz, so its not really that much better.

    2. According to Ward Churchill, in 1500 there were an estimated 12 million Native Americans in the area comprising the United States. In 1900 there were 237,000. I’m pretty sure they’re the “original disparaged race in America”. Even if you narrow the perspective of “disparaged” all the way down to “there’s no good portrayals of them in movies and TV”. And I’m not even going to bring up the aforementioned issues of slavery and Jim Crow laws.

      I understand Chris’ perspective, but I think he overlooked a couple of groups that were SLIGHTLY more “disparaged” than Italians.

  6. FWIW, I’ve been told the reason that there are so many infomercials/commercials that show people behaving with a level of incompetence unbeknownst to the rest of the Western world is because the devices were invented for people with disabilities, but won’t get manufactured unless they can market to your average American dim-bulb.
