At a family barbecue Ned announces his intention to open the Leftorium,a store catering for left-handed customers. Homer,ever jealous of his neighbour,hopes it will fail - and indeed it does,getting to the point where Ned has to sell many of his possessions and his house seems likely to be repossessed. Feeling guilty Homer comes to Ned's rescue by pointing all the left-handed people he knows in the store's direction and thus saving it. Bart,meanwhile,pays the price for going to the video arcade when he should be at self-defence classes. Written by

Did You Know?
The episode featured an unusual amount of animation glitches because the animation studio in Korea was training a new group of animators, and this episode was one of their first efforts. Show runner Mike Reiss
said he will always remember it as the episode "that came back animated with a thousand mistakes in it and was just a complete and utter mess." Jim Reardon
said there was "literally a mistake in every other scene" when the episode came back from Korea. Several scenes had to be re-animated in the United States because of these glitches, but according to Reardon, "you can still see the lesser ones that got through, such as line quality problems particularly in the first act."

The fly was funny, but the booger was the icing on the cake.
