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?
In a surprising case of "Life imitating Art" (or the show in this case), in 2009, a store called "Lefty's" opened in San Francisco that specialized in selling left-handed merchandise (much like the Leftorium). Lefty's now has two stores at Pier 39 in San Francisco and another in Downtown Disney in Orlando, as well as their own website that sells hundreds of left-handed items. The company even took their homage to the Simpsons one step further and used for their website the domain name "Leftorium.com". See more

You lie like a fly with a booger in its eye.
The fly was funny, but the booger was the icing on the cake.
