The Onion's A.V. Club Reviews a "Very Special Episode" of 'The Simpsons'

Chief Wiggum and Snake Jailbird Actually, very special doesn't begin to describe it. It's more "stupendawesomagnifi-
centabulousness." It should be a word, dammit.

The Onion's A.V. Club published a very extensive review of one of the funniest and most creative 'Simpsons' episodes, in my humble opinion: "22 Stories About Springfield."

If you haven't seen it (go punish your eyes), it's exactly as it sounds. It starts with Bart and Milhouse spitting on cars from an overpass and pondering the existence of their townfolk's lives. Then the episode goes from presenting what appears to be the start of a linear story into a very funny series of comedy vignettes featuring the show's background characters.

It's so good to this very day, I wish the 'Simpsons' would pick up where they left off with it: a peek into "The Tomfoolery Of Professor John Frink." It's already got a catchy theme song.

I am pretty sure that the name of the episode is "22 short films about Springfield" because it's not funny unless you can directly relate it to the very popular, at the time, movie "22 short films about Glenn Gould".
