Wright here does “I find your ideas intriguing and also would certainly prefer to subscribe to your newsletter” originate from?


It’s from an episode of The Simpkid, but I can’t remember which one. Homer states it in response to something Bart says.

I’m not rather certain what the usual references intend, or indeed if there’s a pattern.

The original, if I recall effectively, was rather unironic. More choose, “You recognize, no-one’s ever said something favor that to me prior to, but DAMMIT if that doesn’t make a lot of feeling. You are clearly an individual posessing not only understanding, however courage to say points that the Powers That Be execute not desire us to know about. Is tright here anything even more you have the right to tell me?”

Or at leastern that’s what I assumed.

The Mel Gibboy Conspiracy film offers a good idea.

Ah ha! I tracked down the quote, from Wikipedia:

So, irony.

I still disagree. Bart, perhaps, was being ironic, simply saying things that he kbrand-new would certainly annoy his mother. But Homer was almost charmingly sincere in his reply… as if he really assumed Bart would certainly be putting out a newsletter.
