After Springfield is officially declared the fattest town in America Marge successfully brings a court case banning all sugar products. This does not make her popular as the whole town suffers from withdrawal symptoms and Homer joins sweets manufacturer Garth Motherloving in smuggling sugar into the docks. However at Marge's request Homer ditches his cargo into the water and the whole town dives in to get their sugar fix as the ban is officially lifted. Written by don @ minifie-1
