MY FAVORITE SIMPSONS JOKE
modern stone-age... nevermind
I'm watching "The Simpsons". The rerun in question just featured what's probably my favorite joke from the entire series. From episode No. 53, "Separate Vocations":

Bart: Wow, you guys get to carry clubs!
Police Officer Lou: They're called "batons", son.
Bart: Oh... What do you use them for?
Lou: To club people.

Simply priceless.

By the way, according to commentator Jon Bonné at MSNBC, the show no longer sucks as much as it has been the past five or so years, thanks to a de-emphasis on Jerkass Homer. I'll believe it when I see it; maybe I'll keep in mind to catch the new episode this coming Sunday.
