What’s up dear readers?
Wookiee popping in with a little spot of Silly Simpsons News. I know not everyone has the compulsions I do to look for new and exciting news about the Best. Show. Ever. but since I do, I figured I’d share something I came across.
So, as you saw in the title, there is a new name in the cafeteria at Springfield Elementary. No they didn’t rename the Sloppy Joe’s (although I wish they would, I’m tired of being called sloppy) or Mac N Cheese. They renamed Lunchlady Doris.
In the most recent episode (“You Don’t Have to Live Like a Referree”, S25:E16), after a riot at the school over a historical assembly, several newspaper headlines are shown. In one, a picture of our favorite lunchlady is shown but the article’s title names her as Lunchlady Dora. What the french toast?
And that really explains it all. Maybe a future episode will explain what the difference is or maybe we’ll actually see her cook once for her son, Jeremy Freedman aka Squeaky Voiced Teen? Maybe he went Latin too and his name is now Diego and future episodes will include a thieving fox, booted monkey or leopard? Nah… that’d just be silly, like a Rasta version of Itchy & Scratchy or a Spongebob parody, right? I’ll defer to Shakespeare by simply saying what’s in a name anyways? Roses still smell as sweet, the sky is still blue and wookiees still love some crunchy Cheetos.
That sums up this edition of Silly Simpsons News. I’m your host Joe the Wookiee. Now off to Bunny for the weather….
R.I.P. Doris Grau (October 12, 1924 – December 30, 1995)
TTFN… Wookiee out! (P.S. I did re-watch “Dark Knight Court”, S24:E16, and Willy does call her Dora. Totally missed it then. Guess I’m a better reader than listener.)
