  • like father like son: bart writing "insert brain here" on homer's head was a terrific minor prank but did his prank gene come from homer, who also made a prank call to NASA?

    out of all the jobs homer has ever had, this is perhaps the most absurd and unbelievable one though fortunately, the writers never once made homer look qualified for the job, especially when he lost against barney in the training. there are some classic scenes in this episode from homer's rant about the planet of the apes to the potato chips being opened by homer to the inanimate carbon rod being more popular than homer twice. if you're looking for a serious episode...well, come to think of it you shouldn't watch any simpson episode at all, but...if you're looking for a believable episode steer clear of this episode but if you're looking for laughs, watch this immediately.
