The Simpsons Scream for Ice Cream

So I am sitting with Kevin doing some stuff on my computer, just to go upstairs to climb into bed with a book, and I get pulled in by a Simpsons rerun he is watching: Ice Cream of Margie (With The Light Blue Hair). Do the networks know it is National Ice Cream Month?

I'm loving this episode: Homer is selling ice cream and Marge is an artist. This show is chock full of ice cream paraphernalia: trucks, novelties, lactose intolerance and giant ice cream scoops used as shovels at the ice cream man's funeral. Really, what could be finer?

Though most critics reviewed this as a pretty dull episode of the Simpsons, it seems to be me in a nutshell: ice cream and art. Does this mean I am dull?

Dull? Hardly!!! This is the one where she makes popsicle stick sculptures yeah? How post-modern deconstructionist and oh, so non-dull.

EB: yes it was that episode and yes, you are so right? Who needs those critics anyway. What do they know about ice cream and art?
