"Our Stamens Are A Pistil!" in Moe Baby Blues.  Huh?  Well, Lisa gets it, anyway.

I didn't see that episode, but it could be a play on the word pistol, which in that context would mean they're "really something."

I do, it's a very cheap, weird joke.

A Fish Called Selma, The Wedding Scene where the Priest was asking about the objections toward the marriage and we hear Homer's thoughts. What tune is that? what does it all mean?

Even though Homer has a reason to object to the marriage, he just has a song in his head and doesn't say anything.

I think The Simpsons are monotonus and the jokes are actually acts involving movement.
Of course there's a lot of spoken jokes, they are very simple.
'Cause The Simpsons are now like a prototype.
Some Jokes still make me laugh but none of them I havenīt understand.

English people who are pissed about family guys portrayal of the english: i think it was funny, and wasn't the main guy the the same as that guy from the wild thornberrys?  So really they were taking the piss out of other cartoons that sterotype the english.  You don't seem to mind when other countries are sterotyped but then get all touchy about it when it is England.  Typical English really.

Marge said a crapy line in the 1st act The Simpsons - Tis The Fifteenth Season, but I don't know what line it was but it had the word shop in it.

Yeah, I hate the fact that the writers have decided Marge now can't pronounce things correctly.
"Show till we droop."
"Run like the Wind!"
Most jokes that I didn't get referred to American actors/politicians, etc. I never really got the Ted Cobell jokes but when I see those episodes again I think it's funny.
"And Ted Cobell is a robot!"

It's Ted Kopell.  And since the bit about him being a robot was supposed to be a correction, does that mean they did a story about him not being a robot?

It was "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington," when Marge whispers to Homer about the Washington Monument, and Homer replies, "Oh Marge, grow up!"

You got the joke right in one, also remember the 'Clinton Monument' in Futurama.

In "Homer Loves Flanders", when Homer's driving the Simpsons and Flanders to that lake, Homer goes "Don't worry, I brought my Rappin' Ronnie Reagan tape. It always makes the trip go faster!" And he puts in a tape that goes "Well, well, well, w-w-w-w-w-well..." etc. Homer laughs and remarks "You know something, he does say 'well' a lot!"

 What is this in reference to?

Oh and there has never been a British sitcom in which they use sterotypical, unflattering American characters?  Oh wait, that's every American character that's ever appeared in any British sitcom.  And has this made all British people ignorant?  Actually it would seem it has looking at your comments about their "ignorance" and all the "fat people" and "drag queens".
C'mon, lighten up.  As they saying goes, if you can't take it don't give it out. Or something

Why are you bringing up a post i posted like a year ago? anyway it wasnt so much the take on english people that doesnt really bother me its the fact that they dont really take the piss out of themselves. ive never seen a british sitcom that doesnt take the piss out of british people. only fools and horses, the office, the vicar of dibly, absolutely fabulous, little britain, i cant think of one that doesnt. and although my knowledge of american comedy is limited the only shows i have ever seen that takes the piss out of themselves is Futurama and The Simpsons.

you'll probably reply to this in a year.

I was watching my tape of "Bart Gets Famous" today and after Homer thought Bart became a box, he said....

"Damn you! A box!"

I got that.

I meant the line itself, "Damn you! A box!". Is it a reference to something?

I think it's just a reference to silly action sequencing (the sort which goes "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo!" and the like  wink).

Of course, DtB will probably post now and prove me totally wrong.  wink

By the way, in that vein, I was watching the "Enterprise" finale on Monday and one thought sprang to mind:

"Calculon, a fight has broken out at the special effects warehouse! Come quickly before a fiery explosion chases someone down a corridor!"  wink

The other classic example of that (which happens to be one of my favourite jokes) is from "Homer Badman", in the scene with the "Pop Rox" and soda.  wink

The jokes like zoidberg's slinky catching on fire are references to action movies too. the thing about lots of explosions where in reality there would be none. It's like the simpsons joke in Seperate Vocations where Bart's on the ride along and they drive through a stack of cardboard boxes and Lou says, "Damn boxes!". They're just movie cliches.

Heh.  No, you're right.  The SNPP capsule doesn't say anything about a specific reference.

Actually though, for the Reagan song, don't quote me on this but as I understand it there was actually a song like that in the 80s that some group created to poke fun at Reagan and his tendancy to say "well" all the time.  Thus the punchline, with Homer's "you know something? He did say well alot" is a joke not only about Reagan but about the fact that it took Homer that long to catch onto the joke.  Incidentally, the joke is cut in American syndication (some of Canada too I guess) so until the dvd release its lost anyway.
