Funny Guy

Last night we attended a fun lecture with Simpsons writer/producer Mike Reiss at our local college. Lots of frank talk about the show's production, his own screwy life and where the show is heading (full speed ahead on the movie). One interesting tidbit was that the character of Mr. Bergstrom from the season 2 classic Lisa's Substitute was physically modeled after him. It's true! He also said the best character he created was Troy McClure, the worst celebrity guest was Oprah Winfrey ("That woman has the hugest head I've ever seen."), and his best gag was Sherri Bobbins getting sucked into the airplane engine at the end of her episode. And he called President Bush "Satan ... with a learning disability."

After the talk, we went home and watch the Lost premiere - so I guess people getting sucked into airplane engines was the theme of the night.

Too bad we didn't still have the dvd for Firefly. We could have watched the episode "The Train Job" (featuring another jet engine-related death) and made it a triple header

"Satan with a learning disability." Ooh! Too good! And according to Google, it's a new one, too -- the only hit was for your local school paper's article on the talk.
