I have been purposefully avoiding all Simpsons movie references because the media is rife with spoilers. It’s as if everyone’s taken up my mother’s version of movie reviewing which is not so much to analyze the film as to eagerly share the ending with people who clearly state, “Mother, please do not tell me the ending.”
I have fallen victim many times by responding to her giddy requests to unload her rundown of the film. She would promise to tell me everything but the ending. And after a while, she’d pause, then say, “Oh. That’s all that happened. There’s nothing after that.”
It’s as if she’s the live version of this shirt.
