Tonight's episode of The Simpsons was better than I had expected. The main plot, which featured Bart getting "ape-napped" was a bit boring and got a fraction of the episode's screen time. It shared screen time with the subplot, which featured Marge babysitting Rod and Todd because Ned was attending a left-handed convention. I thought this subplot was not only more interesting, but it ended up being much funnier than seeing Bart spend time with an ape.
My favorite scene in the episode featured Homer trying to win the rubber duck race. Despite his efforts to cheat, Homer lost the race to Ned in a silly chain of events, which involved Homer getting crushed and beaten inside of a small watermill.
