Also available in the fuller version here.
For quick reference, here is the original (and cuz seriously, who doesn’t want watch it again):

Might I add — less than 27 days to go to the premiere of season 2. (Should I be starting some sort of countdown…?)
Of course the rest of the Simpsons episode kinda went downhill from there – Bart becomes a street artist a la Shepard Fairey to get back at Homer for locking him in a rabbit cage. It was as bland and convoluted as it sounds. As has been said on the show so many times in so many way, Meh.
The intro music is so amazing.

I also can’t believe it’s been 259 days since HBO originally aired “Fire and Blood”…
