  1. So great, I love the clown college episode so much. Here’s one of my favourite pieces of dialogue:

    Marge: Have you noticed any change in Bart?
    Homer: New glasses?
    Marge: No… he looks like something might be disturbing him.
    Homer: Probably misses his old glasses.
    Marge: I guess we could get more involved in Bart’s activities, but then I’d be afraid of smothering him.
    Homer: Yeah, and then we’d get the chair.
    Marge: That’s not what I meant.
    Homer: It was, Marge, admit it.

      • I thik my favourite clip of Wiggam is when he is doing a serious road safety video. One of the slide randomly features him very much out of shape on one of those water floats eating a hot dog and you hear these horrified screams from the audience haha.
