12 Days of Simpsons, Day 11: How come you’re not at Bumbershoot? D’oh!

We’re honored that our colleague (OK, boss)  at ArtsPage HQ chose the Every Simpsons Ever marathon (showing on FXX) thread to be part of the “Weekend Preview for Bumbershoot Haters” post. Not that we advocate hating Bumbershoot (although some readers do; check the comment thread on the festival guide.). Rather, we advocate Bart Simpson, the devious heart and questionable soul of “The Simpsons.”  A dude with ‘tude. The D student who knows “how George Washington felt when he surrendered Fort Necessity to the French in 1754.” Someone who would probably tunnel under the fence at Bumbershoot and not get caught.

A handful of the best Bart lines:

Homer: “Well now that you’re a little bit older I can tell you that’s a crock. No matter how good you are at something, there’s always about a million people better than you.”
Bart: “Gotcha. Can’t win, don’t try.”

Mrs. Krabappel: “Bart, do you mean to tell me you read a book intended for preschoolers?”
Bart: “Well, most of it.”

Reverend Lovejoy: “Friday you will have the chance to party down in the church basement to the decent rock stylings of Testament.”
Bart: “Pfft! All the best bands are affiliated with Satan.”

Robot: “Tell me, young man, what is it like to have feelings?”
Bart: “I said I’m human, not a girl.”
