  • Homer becomes a vigilante, but becomes a little corrupt as the cat burglar strikes!

    One night, a cat burglar appears on the footsteps of Casa de Simpson & enters (Homer left his keys in). Then, after distracting SLH & Homer with sausages, steals everything, even Lisa's sax!

    But Homer ain't alone: The guy stole all of Barney's possesions (maybe his clothes, too) & Skinner's collection of Strom Norman things.

    The police are at their worst, even Wiggum masking the scent of the cat burglar with his in a conference. With not much hope from these fatsos, the citizens form a group devoted to crime. Homer is now the head.

    Who says power leads to corruption? Along the way, it turns out that "Heavy Sack Beatings" are up 600%, and Homer wants, among a list, "Global Domination".

    Sadly, Homer's group can't find the sax. But then, Homer tries to guard a zirconia, but gets sidetracked by minors & beer. He is then shunned by everyone.

    Enter Grandpa, who tells Homer about Malloy. It turns out Malloy really was a good guy, offering everything he stole back. However, the World's Worst Cops arrest Malloy then.

    In jail, Malloy tells Homer & Wiggum about millions under a "Big T". Soon, the whole town heads for a Big T, which is a spoof of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World", including a guy driving in a river.

    I loved the episode since it included this funny line along with the spoof: "No. Dig UP, stupid!"
