OH MY GOD!

I was just on the Fox.com website --- GO WATCH THE PREVIEW FOR TONIGHT'S SIMPSONS!!!!!

Principal Skinner and Bart are fighting with food on a stick --- Skinner is allergic to peanuts so Bart has a peanut on a stick, and Bart is allergic to shrimp, so Skinner has a shrimp on a stick!

There's a streaming video thing on the right side. I think the video changes and is random, so use the scroll thing under it (it shows different previews) to find the one for the Simpsons.

OMG - so funny!

I just watched the preview - I thought it was funny, particularly the part about "Little Bangkok." My pa dd did not think it was funny. Great. Maybe I need more comic relief than she does.

I think that DH and I will be the only ones watching that. If I let my boys see it, they'd be trying to tie food to the end of their light sabers!
Ended up having to set the VCR to catch it -- Amazing Race already was in that time slot.

If I can get my friends to trap it maybe I'll become an illegal distributor of that clip [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Well, I just saw it. It was ridiculous and just plain stupid. That show just gave some bully ideas on how to harrass my son. Thanks alot Fox.

I dunno, I don't regularly watch the Simpsons, but I think it is clever on a sort of base level. (A dichotomy if there ever was one! LOL ....)
I don't think the Simpsons is going to teach kids new things about being a bully. Lots of kids have been threatened with PB already.
I'm kind of glad it aired. It just goes to show that peanut allergies is becoming more and more mainstream.
I read on a message board recently some woman said she had never even HEARD of a peanut allergy before. *** ??? Hopefully she watches the Simpsons! LOL
ETA: Heh ... the things that get edited in this program crack me up!

So I just saw it (got it on VCR tape).
I was laughing the whole time - it was classic Simpson's, lots of jokes and sub-jokes, and cleverness about the whole shrimp/peanut battle, the Bart/Principal Skinner relationship, 'moral of the story' sort of thing.
I thought it was done very cleverly, however I can see how most of the population would take it only on face value and only think that the writer's were trying to poke fun at PA.
Also - I've been at this for 30 years...and can laugh at such episodes as this one. So I could see how those new to PA or have PA children (I'm PA myself) wouldn't see the humor.
Anyhoot - my favorite part was the clip from the preview ---- with Skinner taking a stand and fighting Bart with the shrimp all sword-fighting style. And yes, the Little Bankok just cracked me up! Seriously, only those who are PA would immediately know what the joke was as soon as they saw the Little Bankok entry sign! HA!
Anyway...

I did not see the humour. Maybe I'm too new at this to laugh, but I saw the comercial and freaked out. I couldn't bring myself to actually watch the show.
On a similar note. I watched this movie called "Hitch" this weekend. Will Smith has a reaction to seafood and puffs up like crazy. I found it stressful to watch. But the worst was that he went to the drug store and drank a bottle of Benadryl, got drunk on it and was fine. I swear, it gave me heart-palpitations!!!

We laughed. Our whole family watched it and thought it was funny. My 12 year old PA DD laughed out loud.

But I don't think I could have watched this 11 years ago when DD was first diagnosed. And if I did, I doubt I'd be able to find any humor either.
For us, being able to laugh and see the humor is a mile stone that I hadn't really fully appreciated. Watching the show helped me realize that we're at a good place. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
