When Grampa gives each member of the family a portion of his savings, Lisa and Marge spend their money in drastically different ways. Lisa invests in Nelson's brand-new business venture, but soon realizes that her friend's instant success might lure him away from the classroom. Worried that his judgment might be clouded, Lisa introduces Nelson to the well-educated and successful creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, only to find out that he too dropped out of school. But when the soaring business suddenly takes a sharp turn, Lisa teaches her friend that education is invaluable. Written by Fox Publicity

Mark Zuckenburg and Muhammad Yunas as themselves,
29 October 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Loan a Lisa is a great Simpsons episode guest starring creator of Facebook and billionaire Mark Zuckenburg and a small cameo as shown on Lisas lab top from Muhammad Yunas,both of them playing themselves.

Grampa gives each of the Simpsons $50 and they each try to find a way to spend it,and Lisa uses the money to help Nelson Muntz out for his new bike company,but when he starts making a lot of money,Nelson considers to drop out of school.

Meanwhile Homer and Marge keep buying expensive things from the mall and returning it without any damage done making them not have to pay all the money for it.
