Homer starts a biker gang,what more do I need to say?
30 August 2007 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Some people just live to complain about things, by lack of a use. Apparently, this episode is bad because Marge throwing around motorcycles is like, so unrealistic. A cartoon can't have that. Isn't the whole point of the joke how unrealistic it is? Seriously, that's the whole thing behind it, and it's hilarious. That's the life of a television writer, all they have to console themselves are the tuns and tuns of cash. You slave to entertain people and you come up with jokes far far above average sitcom standards, and then suddenly you have people with no life saying that one particular joke is not very realistic. Get a girlfriend. Season 11 of "The Simpsons" rocked, and the show didn't sink like a brick until at least two seasons later. Best scene: Bart teaching Homer to ride by using training wheels. That's just good stuff.
