Storyline

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 don @ minifie-1
