Man, what an unfortunately-themed fake episode of Star Trek to air right at this moment!

I mean, it happens.  Almost immediately after our hamster Snkrs died, Maggie and I sat down to watch television to escape our grief.  And so of course The Simpsons immediately kills Lisa Simpsons’ class hamster and tosses its body carelessly into a trash can.  We had a very good crylaugh.  I mean, yeah, it put us right back into tears, but the specific way in which the universe was punishing us was hilariously cruel and we couldn’t not also cackle like broken weirdos.

Howard may not appreciate his universe doing this in regards to his sister quite as much.
