11. The Waiting Game
Everyone knows The Waiting Game sucks, and that Hungry Hungry Hippos is a preferable alternative. Or 'Hippo In The House' (unless the hippo's missing).
Looking forward to yelling "In this house we obey the laws of THERMODYNAMICS" at my future-children for the first 10 years of their lives, with no context or explanation.
13. "In God We Trust"
lol @ all money
14. Homeowner's Tax
Fortunately, I'm not enough of an adult to actually have to pay one of these, because I will NEVER be enough of an adult to not laugh at paying one of these. Plus I already pay the Homer Tax.
15. Jeremy Irons, Walt Whitman, or Rory Calhoun
Every time Walt Whitman's name came up in a class throughout my life, someone was there with the appropriate "I. HATE. YOU. WALT. FREAKIN'. WHITMAN!" response. Basically, it was the English-class cousin of yelling "MORE LIKE BORE-O-PHYL!" anytime chlorophyl came up in a science class. RELATED NOTE: I was so much fun to be around in school, you guys.
Also, I still don't know who Rory Calhoun is outside of The Simpsons and refuse to look it up.
My mom was a school principal who often had very long, serious job-related phone discussions with her superintendent, but I was always there to support her with a nice "How are things with the ol' Super Nintendo? Is he putting the 'Super' back in 'Superintendent'?"
17. Guys And Dolls
As a Theater Major in college, I learned very little actually-useful life information, other than the fact that turning the title of any musical into a song where you just keep just repeating that title is never not hilarious.
18. Anyone With The Last Names "Grimes," "Thompson," or "Black"
Future-apologies to anyone with these names who ever come in contact with me.
19. "Purple," "Monkey" or "Dishwasher"
...Or just any time you mis-hear a sentence. Or mis-speak a sentence. Or really, since we're on the home stretch of this list, let's just say "pretty much any word, combination of words, or phrase ever spoken by people in any situation." Much tidier.
Other examples we're leaving out? Feel free to leave them in the comments! (We cut this list down to 20 from about, say, 500 or so examples.)
(Also, thanks to my other Simpsons SuperFriends for sending me their billions of personal contributions for this list. You truly are the King of Kings.)
