Every year, as regular viewers will know, The Simpsons has a Halloween episode, and the credits of the episode are altered so that the people have 'spooky' names. Bat Groening is one solid example. This year they just couldn't have fun with it, no. They had to get political. One of the nicknames tonight was "Hockey Mom."

Get lost, losers. If you can't just have fun without getting political, I'll just have to pass on buying Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD, as I almost did last week. I'll pass on that permanently.

Maybe I'll buy Cheers instead, if it's out. A season with Doctor Crane in it.
