Worst Episode Ever #42: Show Your Work

Special guest Harry Nelson of the Harry Says Yes podcast joins Jack & Dan to discuss Season 22's The Scorpion's Tale, an episode that features Werner Herzog as a pharmaceutical giant/Willy Wonka character and eyeballs popping out of everyone's heads. Topics include why Simpsons writers need to start showing their work, the means needing to justify the ends when it comes to jokes and storytelling and a classic all over Web of Spider-Man plot. Why is Dan buying so much syrup? Is Jack the Robot Devil? Will there be a Choose Your Own Podcast adventure played out over WEE, Harry Says Yes and Desert Masturbation 101? All that, plus Harry won't shut up, Dan's product placement conspiracy theory expands and Jack begins to talk about some pancakes he ate before thinking better of it.
