Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Tough Simpsons identification quiz on minor characters. I got 50/96, but I recognized almost all of them—just couldn't retrieve their names (tho in some cases they have no names, just descriptors).
61 and I was proud of some of the very obscure ones.
I can visually recognize but not name 61 of them, can name about half of them. I had no idea that Jimbo's buddy is named Dolphin

He'd always been Dolph, making him Dolphin must be some later season addition crap.

Even that I don't recognize though as ever being mentioned, I probably just don't pay close enough attention.

Everything about that commercial is insanely hilarious. Any plans for the summer?

It was also a funnier take on Japanese culture than the episode where they actually go to Japan (which is still a better post-10 episode than most).

Oh Christ, yes. That was another of their try-to-hard, jam-crap-in efforts. This was part of the B story, a throwaway extended gag that just soars, capturing how goddamned bizarre Japanese media looks to outsiders.
