Should Have Been Cancelled Here, 30 March 2012

Homer Gets Cold Feet When Giving Grandpa A Kidney Transplant.

Okay From Here On In Most Of The Episodes Are Crap, What I Don't Get Is "What Was Meant To Be Funny?" Homer Leaving His Father For Dead? Ha Ha Ha, No I Got It The Period Of Time When Homer Realizes That Sacrificing His Kidney For His Father Is Worse Than Getting Blind F#ucking Drunk, I Know Homer Isn't Exactly The Most Sentimental Guy But He Isn't Like That. Doing This Makes Homer Come Off As Being Completely Heartless And Selfish. I Know That He Could Be Afraid Of Surgery But Its For His Fathers Life.

I Advise No One Watch This Or Any Episode Past This.
