I Tivo'd it and haven't watched it yet. My boys did and my pa ds thought it was hysterical. He told me not to delete it because he might watch it again.

DH and I watched it last night. I'm torn about it. We both thought it was funny. We both thought that last night's show had more adult humor (appreciated it - but knew aside from the FA part it wouldn't be for our kids). I'd probably watch it again if it were on TIVO instead of a tape. The part that actually made us laugh the hardest was when Marge was in the hardware store and the other women were telling her what her job was -- Oh, that and when the guy came out, looked at the gazebo and ended up telling Homer to take of his shirt so they could wrestle like men.
On the flip side, my child has been chased with a plastic bag that held a peanut butter sandwich. We know the kid that did it, we know he watches the Simpsons. We also know that the little glut of boys who hangs with that kid, also watches the Simpsons and was part of the mess we've had before with bullying.
I'm hoping that that group, who happens to be on my DS's soccer team, will have evolved over the summer. I'm not counting on it. I can't count on it. I have to hope that today no prankster at my DS's school chases him with anything nut -- or tries to get him to do something with the threat of a nut. Before he left for school with DH today I gave him clear instructions what he was to do if anyone threatened him with anything or tried to get him to do anything using something nut for incentive. Hopefully the day goes quickly, and DS comes home with no incidents to report.

I dont watch the Simpsons but my dh turned on the TV when they were fighting with the sabers.He had watched NFL earlier and it was on FOX so when he turned on TV that came on.
I wish I saw the whole thing. I am not offened by it at all. Thought it was funny. My PA son didnt see it he was already in bed.
HOWEVER did anyone catch Amercian Dad after that? It was on and in one secene the husband comes home from work and the wife says "oh if I would have known you would be home early tonight I wouldnt have taken care of myself in the bath" I was like did she just say what I think she said???
I also dont watch this show, didnt think it was funny at all. I was just busy doing things until DHW started and Fox happen to be on.

When I first started having reactions (adult on-set allergies) I did pretty much the same thing as Hitch. Never thought of using a straw though.

He had no idea what he was reacting to. Most adults that I have spoken to did NOT run to the doctor with their first reaction.

My son saw no humor in that episode. I did not see it but have to agree with him. I'll try to catch it in reruns.

Cannot comment here really except to say we don't watch the Simpsons for other reasons.
I'm torn about the PA humor thing.
PA can kill my little girl. I find it hard to laugh at it.
If they were purposely sneezing on a girl with cancer to try and kill her with her lowered immunity while she is on chemo --- would that be funny?
I don't see it.

I agree any show etc. that thinks this allergy is a joke is plain ignorant,it's funny when you aren't the one living with it, day to day.
But when it is a part of your life that is different.I'm not against others laughing at the show. But those who deal with the allergy, it is just plain sad to see, not funny.

Just linking to discussions about an earlier Simpsons where a dad to one of the regular characters had an allergic reaction to peanuts:
