''Don't Have a Cow, Mankind'', In this bizarre ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' meets ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'' tale, Springfield is once again overrun by zombies (now called "munchers"), this time, thanks to Krusty's latest fast food sandwich made from cattle with mad-cow disease -- and the only one not affected by the tainted meat is Bart.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: In "Moe Business", after the aforementioned musical number about Homer being gay, Moe heads to check on Homer in the distiller...only to be reminded that he had to get ''out'' of that costume and make-up in order to do that song. Moe is left awkwardly stalling to the audience while Homer gets back into costume offstage.


Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: In-universe. Homer "killing" Moe in "Moe Business" is clearly just him beating up a dummy that looks like Moe. And he doesn't put a lot of effort into it either.
