A Twitter thread has asked fans of The Simpsons to choose their favourite jokes, spotlighting some of the show’s finest moments.
User @ManuclearBomb called upon fans to post their favourite one-liners and scenes, with the tweet earning over 11,000 likes and over 9,000 quote tweets at the time of writing.
The thread itself is a nostalgic trawl through the show’s former glories, where even the tiniest sign reference or one-shot gag is celebrated.
Some of the highlights include Mr. Burns singing ‘See My Vest’ in Disney fashion, Homer’s overwhelming jubilation at a free trampoline, or the ominous “then we’d get the chair”.
There’s some deep dives too, featuring Troy McClure’s Planet Of The Apes musical, and Kent Brockman asking an expert if it’s time for everyone to “feast on the goo” inside their heads.
You can check out some of the best gags below.
