12 Days of Simpsons, Day 5: Best of Grandpa

Abraham Simpson/ Matt Groening, FOX

Matt Groening, FOX

Welcome to Day 5 of our celebration of “The Simpsons,” Matt Groening’s famous family. Our party celebrates the FXX channel’s marathon broadcast (going on now!) of all 552 episodes of the animated comedy. Today we honor Abe Simpson, the turnip-headed elder of the family, who drifts in and out of real time in hilarious fashion. Some favorite exchanges:

Bart: “Grampa, Matlock’s not real.”
Abe: “Neither are my teeth, but I can still eat corn on the cob if someone cuts it off and mushes it into a fine paste.”

——————————————————————-

Abe: “The metric system is the tool of the devil! My car gets forty rods to the hogshead and that’s the way I likes it.”

——————————————————————

Marge: “And so, just as things looked their worst…”

Abe: “I realized I could make money selling my medication to deadheads!”
