  • This episode is practically marinated in satire!

    Who knew that an innocent Homer Simpson wanting a candy would be bombarded with protesters and negative media? The candy convention scene was awesome but the main plot was even better. Protesters follow Homer everywhere he goes, making him miserable so he goes on television to help his reputation; too bad he enlisted the help of FOX news. His character is degraded into the image if an ass grabber and when all hope seems lost, Willy shows up to save the day! The feminists and FOX apologize and Homer's life returns to what it was before the "incident." The funny thing is, Homer did not learn anything from this.

    Grade: A-
