Marge Simpson is a sage

So I managed to catch the Simpson's re-runs on TV last night and it was as if fate had plunked me down in front of the TV... You see, Lisa won tickets to an indy flick on NPR and dragged the whole family to see a movie called "Kosovo Autumn" or something to that effect and as the family is leaving the theater, the following conversation took place:

Bart: [after they watch a foreign film] I was so bored I cut the pony tail off the guy in front of us.

[holds pony tail to his head]

Bart: Look at me, I'm a grad student. I'm 30 years old and I made $600 last year.

Marge: Bart, don't make fun of grad students. They've just made a terrible life choice.

So true, Marge, so true....
