The one from 'A Tale of Two Spingfields' where there's a badger in the Dog kennel, and Homer goes in to try and get it out. But when he comes out, his shirt is fine, not even a scratch, but then he lifts his shirt up and all his skin has been torn away on his stomach, and you can see all his insides. I don't get it?

I didn't get the "Sterotypical" Scotsmen's behaviour in that episode where they got Nessie. Not exactly funny, but the worst part was that it was completely bollocks. I think it would have had most of the UK, let alone Scotland, going "WTF!?!"
So that I didn't get - is it how Americans view Scots or something?

No, it's just how really bad Simpsons writers view Scots.

The joke is that they're making fun of Scottish stereotypes. Willie is one of my favorite characters.

Yeah, but are those genuinely American Scottish stereotypes? Because the Scots i've experience with are some of the wildest, fieriest people i've ever met. The boring, unemotional Scots depicted in 'Monty Can't Buy Me Love' I don't find in the least bit offensive, but I just wonder what the point of reference was?

Otis: The joke was that the Simpsons ceased all credibility at approximately that point. It's funny.

It's true, it's all true  laff

I could probably post hundreds of crap joke like that asking for a meaning, but they'd all have that same answer. And I just haven't been keeping track anymore, for that reason.

Changing "The royal fart inn" to "The royal frat inn" in "hit the gator and run"

Why the hell would someone name their hotel "The royal fart inn"?

It's a reference to the old british comedy "Fawlty Towers." In the intro, the kids would always re-arrange the letters of the sign to spell something stupid. The joke here is that somebody changes the letters of this hotel's sign to something stupid - when the actual name is even stupider

the reason why the scots were like that is because they view english and scotish people as they were 100 or so years ago. i thought it was funny, what i didnt think was funny was the english people in Family Guy. Seriously any other show i think does it quite funny but they did it terribly. having us all like royalty and massive teeth,they also said that english people find men dressed as women funny i think that theres more drag queens in the US isnt there?

yer i did actually take offense to that. in the simpsons they take the piss out of themselves so its not so bad but in Family Guy the just portrayed english people as the very rich and the very poor, which goes on to make americans even more ignorant.

A) The episode's ripping off The Graduate.
B) Dunno.
C) Marge is referring to Judge Reinhold, an semi-famous actor from the 80s.  He struck out with Pheobe Cates in both Gremlins and Fast Times At Ridgemont High.

I know it was a graduate spoof. I've studied it. And the Garfunkel impersonator was a dead givaway.

I think the Reinhold thing is starting to make sense now.

I remember that. I just thought it was the lamest thing I'd ever seen on The Simpsons. It wouldn't even work on Futurama (and before anyone says anything, the pipe in Parasites Lost was a different thing entirely  tongue).

A rhinoceros hatches from a large egg.
Lisa: Wait, rhinos don't come from eggs.
Homer: What did you just see, Lisa?
Lisa: I know, but--
Homer : (insistent) What did you just see?

Teesside Inc, the Safari joke was supposed to be funny BECAUSE it didn't make sense. Don't think too far into it.

Also, the fact that Homer and Marge send Lisa to her room for her beliefs is making fun of modern parents, who always send children to their room when they do anything bad. However, Lisa isn't doing anything bad - she's just annoying them, but they still send her to her room anyway because they have no other way to shut her up. It's a parody of parenting in modern American suburbia.

As for everyone laughing at "take that, Lisa's beliefs!" line - that's also a joke on modern parenting. Instead of listening to their daughter, they laugh at what she believes in. It's just making fun of how ignorant people can be.

That was great... though I didn't understand it.

Also, when Zoidberg's house burns down because Bender left his cigar in it. The problem? THEY WERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN!

But I still thought it was great.

Well, not all of them, but you've got a point. Homer contradiction jokes, for example, have become a predictable reccurance, e.g. "I never apologise Lisa. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am."  hmpf
