Marge Vs Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples, Teens and Gays
Couch gag; Knives are thrown at the family when they sit down
Director: Bob Anderson
Synopsis: When babies riot at a concert, childless residents protest about families, resulting in Marge to counter-protest and bring families first.
Discussion: I really need to start tagging posts with WTF?
Everyone’s favourite annoying children’s act, Roofi, is back and Marge has tickets to the concert. However, not all goes to plan in this babies’ version of Woodstock and the kids riot (well, Springfield does love a riot). Lindsay Nagle pops up, announces she works too hard for her childless lifestyle and forces families to be segregated. Marge bites back… at least, that’s what I think happens.
There’s no real plot in this episode. It’s just a mash of dialogue thrown together in the hope it makes sense. There are parts of it that come off as a satirical look at the Yay America paradigm, which I criticised a few posts ago. Families are what built America, kids are the future and Marge wants to protect that. Homer couldn’t really care less as long as the kids are in a R-rated movie while he does what he pleases.
I don’t really know what else to say about this ep. Sure, Roofi is annoying and anyone who has ever gone to a Wiggles concert knows how crazy things get (and don’t get me started on mothers buying tickets!) but is there a premise for a baby riot?
