Jeez, is this ANOTHER episode centered around Fat Tony? They've been going to him a lot lately. But I can't fault the episode's opening, which has some of the funniest stuff I've seen all season.

Bart: Next in line! What am I bid for next in line?
Carl: Five bucks!
Mel: Ten bones!
Wiggum: Half a cheesesteak!
Krusty: I'll perform at your birthday party...SOBER!
Wiggum: Quarter of a cheesesteak!
Willie: A nest with a robin's egg!
Wiggum: The...the wrapper of a cheesesteak.

And I still get a kick anytime they bring back Spider-Pig.

So it's another standard "Selma finds a man" plot, but they haven't done it in a good while, so I'd be willing to give it a pass. But this one felt kinda dull, so I couldn't get all the way into it. Definitely couldn't get into the Jersey Shore knockoffs. But I still love Fat Tony's mob guys.

Frankie the Squealer: Whoa! Sounds like someone's gonna propose here!
Johnny Tightlips: Shut up! You're spoiling the mood!

Thumbs up for the first segment, but this episode had nothing after that.

EDIT: And yes, I'm as shocked as anybody that this aired during national coverage of Bin Laden's death.

I thought the jokes were really strong (starting with Homer appearing in the arcade after Bart basically suggested he wanted to go there), even the mob and Fat Tony stuff, but the story didn't hold up. No surprise that the found a place for the Jersey Shore knock-offs...I'm hoping they didn't just feature this plot in order to shoe-horn them in, so they could make a pop culture spoof.

I thought it was pretty damn funny. They must have been hoarding mob jokes, Italian jokes, and Jersey Shore jokes to fill up the episode. I liked the sight gags too, like Lefty and Louie drowning the guy upside down on the boat during the proposal. I also liked the sign "Thank you God for this abomination".

But my favorite line was "I don't know whether to knock you on your kisser or kiss you on your knockers."

It apperas to be a copy of that golden classic The Planet From Outer Space (simpsons.shoutwiki.com):

(image removed)

You can also see When Harry Became Sally, The People vs. Godzilla, How to Lose a Guy in 50 Years, Ghetto Angel, Television Show: The Movie, what appears to be Pretty Hoobutt (that can't be right) and... I also can't quite make out that one with the Planet of the Apes lookin' Ape on the cover.

In the NEXT frame, they zoom out to reveal what appears to be a copy of The Abyss (over on the left)!
