Worst Episode Ever #19: Burnsify It!

It's Chinese New Year this week, so The Simpsons are going to China as WEE watch Season 16's Goo Goo Gai Pan and Selma attempts to adopt a Chinese baby. And it actually starts out really great in a funny coherent first act... which quickly devolves into overly complicated plots and troubling racial humor. Are cartoony gags worth breaking the reality of the show? Is Robert Wagner the real-life Troy McClure? And was Jack's first car powered by squirrels, or cartoon wolves? All that, plus Dan bamboozles a pandamonium pun, Jack loves menopause, and we feel old and bad about ourselves. (We actually mention mimeograph machines in this episode, ask your parents kids.). And Hank Azaria is Sephardic Jewish, not Italian as we ignorantly assume in this episode. Thanks Wikipedia!
