Krusty's new eco-burgers bring food poisoning to Springfield thanks to contaminated barley,an ingredient imported from neighboring Ogdenville. Conssequently the Ogdenville economy plummets and its citizens,descendants of Norwegians,migrate to Springfield where they are initially welcomed for their industry. However their customs start to swamp those of Springfield and Quimby decrees that a wall be built to keep any more incomers at bay. The Ogdenvillers are allowed to help in its construction,during which time a strange new bond forms between the two townships. Written by

Did You Know?
In the intro, when spoofing Cheers, Sideshow Bob walks in, forcing the family to flee. This is a reference to Kelsey Grammer
(who voices Sideshow Bob) playing the character Dr. Frasier Crane on Cheers
(1982). See more
When Krusty goes to take a bite, the close up isn't him at all. The man in the close up's face is yellow, not white, and he has a regular pair of lips, not the monkey style like Krusty and Homer. This is, of course, on purpose, to imply that Krusty didn't really eat the burger, and that the commercial's production values are shoddy. See more
So. you're guaranteeing it's safe to eat Ogdenville barley once more?
Well, where there's barley, there's rats, you know? Now, when will you be starting the interview?
That just went out live.
Well, then we're screwed.
