Simpson's writers: "D'oh!"

Those of you who watched the new Simpsons episode on Sunday may be interested that James Lileks is speculating that the writers of the show should have anticipated a year ago when production for this episode that we'd be at war with Iraq at this time, and dumped the jokes about blood and Britain's "lack of masculinity". (They're our allies, you know.)

Damian J. Penny, commenting on this, figures that the Simpsons played out its string a long time ago.

As they say in college exams: Discuss.
