★ Motivational Skills

Homer on being selected to cover for Smithers…

“I think Mr. Burns picked me because of my motivational skills. Everyone says they have to work a lot harder when I’m around.”

Classic.

★ The New Year

So this is the New YearAnd I don’t feel any different.
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance.

So this is the New Year
And I have no resolutions.
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions.

: The New Year by Death Cab For Cutie from the album Transatlanticism
