    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Sam Drucker scoffs at Haney's plastic chocolate cake for ant control. Instead, he suggests a sponge rubber cherry pie that squeaks their mating call. When an ant bites, it dislocates the critter's jaw.

      • For the picnic, Lisa prepares peanut butter and liverwurst, and tuna fish and jelly sandwiches.

      • The "A" package from "Haney's Picnic Supplies", available for just $45, includes the following: A folding table and chair set, a genuine mohair blanket (made from Moe's hair), a bag of fried chicken parts (individually labeled), one dozen colored boiled eggs and a plastic chocolate layer cake (ants break their teeth when they try to bite into it).

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Hank Kimball: (learning about Oliver and Lisa's picnic Where are you going?
        Oliver: We don't know yet.
        Hank Kimball: Say, if you want a good picnic spot, I know just the place. It has all these beautiful trees, a stream runnin' through it, a waterfall...
        Oliver: (excited) That sound perfect! Where's that?
        Hank Kimball: Yellowstone National Park.
        Oliver: (under breath, through gritted teeth) I ought to...

      • Haney: (pitching his pcnic package) Now, the picnic basket also contains this plastic chocolate layered cake.
        Lisa: What's that for?
        Haney: I'm glad you asked that.
        Oliver: You would have told her anyway.
        Haney: This is my patented ant attractor. You just place it on the ground at least five feet away from where you're eating, and the ants are attracted by the life-like look of the cake. And while you eat in peace, they're breaking their little teeth on the plastic.
