Things get serious (well, not that serious) as WEE, and returning guest Brice Canedo-Pullan, discuss Season 14's problematic "Large Marge". Marge accidentally gets breast implants, the citizens of Springfield sing a song about how they make her better, and lazy gay jokes get made in a muddled episode that makes no larger social commentary and has no moral. Remember, this show tackled homosexuality in a thoughtful progressive episode just six years prior! We weigh the heavy issues of sexism, feminism, and body shaming as three white heterosexual men (and we welcome listener input on it, male, female, or otherwise). Plus, Batman! Who is the worst Jack ever? Who will literally blush themselves to death? And who left the milk out?
