Make Way For The Kinder, Gentler Homer

Homer Simpson apparently won’t be choking Bart anymore

CNN–Homer Simpson has, according to the animated character, stopped strangling his son Bart – bringing to an end a long-running (and outdated) gag on the show.

It’s one of many set pieces on the beloved animated series. In this recurring interaction, Homer, the family patriarch, begins vigorously choking Bark after yelling, “Why you little …”

A recent episode of the show went viral after the character of Homer shakes the hand of a new neighbor and is complimented on a strong handshake.

“See, Marge, strangling the boy paid off,” Homer tells his wife, Marge.

He then says, “Just kidding, I don’t do that anymore. Times have changed.”

Homer Simpson was unavailable for comment as he was busy strangling Bart.


Trump Leaves CNN Studio In Ruins After Townhall

Cable carnage: Trump turns CNN town hall into televised combat

Politico–In what became an hour-long form of television combat on a variety of issues, Trump received routine applause from the Republican and Republican-leaning crowd, including over his dismissal of a recent verdict that found him guilty of sexual assault. He did not flinch when asked by the moderator, CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, if he owed his one-time VP Mike Pence an apology for the riot he helped incite while Pence was at the capitol.

One of the most testy exchanges between Trump and Collins came when she pressed him on the federal investigation into documents from the White House that were found at his Mar-a-Lago club. After Collins pushed back at his repeated assertions that Biden had taken more documents than he had, he went back at her.

“You are a nasty person, I’ll tell you,” Trump remarked.
