When Edne Krabapple's (Marcia Wallace) replacement, a sadistic temporary teacher Jack Lassen (Willem Dafoe) gives Bart a humiliating haircut, Bart plans revenge. His opportunity comes when he discovers that Lassen is about to light the Blazing Guy (an apparent parody of burning man) effigy at a hippie camp-site. He contrives to get the family on holiday there and to wreck Lassen's big moment.
