OK. I get it. If you are going to do a parody or a pun…or even worse, a bad parody and a bad pun, you might as well go all of the way. And this prize does.
It’s actually from an episode…the Treehoouse of Horrors that came out around the same time that the Horror Film (at least for me) La La Land, came out. It’s from Season 21, and the segment is called, “Tweenlight.” Yes. Another play on the “Twilight” movies. Equally awful as La La Land.
According to the WIKI- Dracula-la Land is a neighborhood of Springfield where everyone is a vampire, or at least looks like one.
“Homer and Count Dracula drove into Dracula-la Land searching for their children (Lisa and Edmund), who had run off together. After a brief search, which included asking Count von Count if he’d seen the kids, Dracula spotted Edmund carrying Lisa up the side of a bell tower.”
OK then. And then they dance and sing? Man. I really hated that movie. Bad dancing. Bad singing. Silly story. But, I digress…

Ned:Homer, I’m a charitable neighbor, but these darn vampires have gone too far this time!
Homer: *gasp* Ned, I won’t hear you badmouth immigrants. They’re some of the hardest working members of our community.
Ned: Now they’ve gone and built a vampire shopping district right in our neighborhood. Just think of the noise and traffic! It’s time to shut down that district the only way a vampire will understand…with a rezoning bylaw passed by the city council.
Homer: I’m with you, Ned, as soon as I take advantage of their giant discounts on capes and fang sharpeners.

Homer: Kind of. They’re mostly arriving by bat.
OK then. At least they didn’t dance, sing and do the “Break Up Scene” at the end.
NEXT UP- “The Webs”…whatever that is.
