The land of chocolate!
8 August 2010 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Burns Verkaufen Der Kraftwerk is a brilliant Simpsons episode,which shows the amazing scene in the land of chocolate,you'll see it when the German mentions that he is from the land of chocolate which causes Homer to imagine a real land of chocolate.

MR Burns is tired of his stressful life at the Nuclear Power Plant and decides to start a new life,then gives it away to German people,who then lower Homers job down because he isn't a good safety inspector,so Homer has to find a new job.
