The Simpsons Did it by PixelKitties The Simpsons Did it by PixelKitties
So, thought I, wouldn't it be fun to make a simple, easy, TINY little comic comparing today's awesome episode of My Little Pony to the classic Simpsons episode Marge Versus The Monorail? No problem, said I.

Shouldn't take more than a couple hours, right?

Right?

Grumble...grumble...

Anyway, have a very, very very late comic!

Edit- Couple changes. Spent a full thirty minutes yesterday trying to confirm which pony was Flim and which was Flam and I STILL managed to get it wrong. Fixed that.

Since folks seem upset at the idea the machine was a dud, changed the dialog a bit to reflect the idea it actually worked until the brothers turned off quality control.

Like it or not, the brothers were the villians of the week. And despite being total badflanks, great singers, and entertaining entrepreneurs, they also tried to swindle a family out of their livelihood.

Can't change the font. Sorry it's hard to read, but this one is done and I don't really want to go back and reformat everything right now. Maybe later.

That's all for now!

What planet are they from where people actually say stuff like that? Vaudeville, maybe?

Don't worry, if that fails, they can always start a fake Marching Band...right after they screw over some Hippies (the second one actually happened in the comics).

I honestly never saw the connection, and I'm a huge Simpsons fan. Niether Flim nor Flam could ever top the late great Phil Hartman though.

The flim flam brothers were really carrying the Idiot Ball in that episode.

The Cider Squeezy machine WORKED. Heck, any part of it-- the picker, the sorter, the squeezer--- would have revolutionized apple farming. If they'd had given the Apples a square deal they would have made a fortune. If they had made them stick by the rules of the contest they would have won handily. Even then, at the end, if they'd just served the good cider from the first half of the batch, instead of the BAD stuff, they would have walked away with a clean win.
