I’ll Drink To That

In a classic episode of The Simpsons, Homer borrows money from Marge’s sisters to get himself out of a financial fix. Naturally, he neglects to tell his wife about the loan, presenting Patty and Selma with the opportunity to blackmail him.

Of the many brilliant lines in this episode – ‘you can’t spell obsequious without I-O-U’ – one has particular resonance following my pistol-whipping at the casino. It comes when our hero is bemoaning his predicament to Carl. Carl, though, is unsympathetic: ‘Quit wallowing in self-pity. Pull yourself together and come get drunk.’

Now that’s what I call good advice.
