  • Burn's evilness is revealed as Marge paints him naked. Go Marge Go Marge GO GO GO GO

    Homer decides it's time to go on a diet after getting stuck in the waterslide at Mount Splashmore. While looking for his barbells in the attic, Homer notices drawings of Ringo Starr that Marge painted when she had a crush on him in high school. Lisa tells Marge she should go to an art school because she has talent. Marge signs up for an art class at the College and paints a photo of Homer asleep on the couch in his underwear. The teacher loves the painting and enters it into the Art Show. Marge wins the contest, and Mr. Burns wants her to paint him. While at their house, Marge walks in on Mr. Burns nude getting out of the shower. Burns mocks Homers attempt at weight loss, while Marge is angry with Burns. She paints a picture of the REAL Burns she saw in the bathroom. At it's unveiling, Burns is outraged but grows to like the painting.
