Charles: I have a joke.
Marge Simpson: Ooh! I like jokes. As long as it's not a knock-knock joke. I always ruin them by saying "come in".
Charles: So, there's a man, right? and he comes across a genie.
Marge Simpson: That's funny!
Charles: That's just the setup.
Marge Simpson: Oh. Well, it's set me up for a lot of laughs.
Charles: So, the genie says to the man "I'll give you three wishes, but everything you wish for, your wife will get double."
Marge Simpson: Umm-hmmm.
Charles: So, the man says "I want a brand new car," and the genie says "Your wife gets two!" You remember, the whole double...?

Why, Oh Why?????
16 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the words of Comic Book Guy - "WORST EPISODE EVER!"

I don't see why Ricky Gervais was even asked to write an episode; his feeble attempts at comedy ( The Office and Extras) are about as funny as watching paint dry. Matt Groening made a serious mistake letting this dirge be made! This was plugged to the hilt by SKY, claiming it would be the funniest show that The Simpsons creators had released in a very long time, even giving it pride of place in their monthly free magazine. I know most people don't get British humour, but Ricky Gervais doesn't even class as British funny, he's more like something that comes out of the old Eastern Bloc regions of Europe when it comes to comedy...i.e. NOT!
