  • Homer and Bart are con artists.

    In this episode, Homer and Bart become con artists after Bart gets a magic set and begins to perform magic on the street. So when it does not work out, Homer leaves Bart stranded which makes Bart a charity case and people start giving him money. Bart and Homer start working this angle and get advice from someone who wrote the book on grifting - Grandpa Simpson. When they get busted for conning the old people at Grandpa Simpson's nursing home, they try to scam their way out of it and Groundskeeper Willie ends up taking the fall until he decides to shoot some of the people at the courthouse. Which is when Homer and Bart realize that they were being conned too.

    I don't know why everybody thinks this episode sucks, I thought that it was really funny. One of the best of season 12 which has alot of good eps.
