“Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy,” season 5, episode 14

I’ll be honest. After making moon waffles, I wasn’t sure where to go from there. Once you’ve hit a simultaneous high and low, nothing’s left but the boring old middle, right?

Lucky for us all, The Simpsons is a nearly endless pot of simultaneously disgusting and delicious dishes. Many of these (like said moon waffles) come from Homer, who will eat just about anything (“If you need me, I’ll be in the refrigerator”), and this month is no exception. Our latest Homer eatscapade comes from “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy,” a Season 5 classic episode from the “Lisa vs.” series.

Homer explains today’s recipe thusly: “I’m a white male, age 18 to 49. Everyone listens to me, no matter how dumb my suggestions are.” He then reaches into the cabinet and pulls out a can of “Nuts and Gum” sporting the slogan “Together at Last,” and proceeds to chow down. Nuts and Gum! Two great snacks that sound completely horrific together. When do you stop chewing? And do you swallow it? Part of it? How do you know what part? Read this rest of the article and what my friends thought of Nuts and Gum here.
