** Lisa confronts Homer about those expensive showy things and where Homer got the money.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Homer to attempt to throw a convincing lie at Lisa. Hell, he could simply say that he did bet in favor of Lisa during most of the tournament (which he actually did, by the way - he only made a bet against Lisa in the finals, and just because Lisa told him about her tendencies to [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut fail in finals]]) but then realized how idiotic it was to bet in a crossword tournament, or something like this.\\
'''Instead:''' Not only he makes no efforts trying to hide that he made a bet against Lisa, he didn't even mention that he did bet in favor of her on the other games of the tournament. Granted, it's not enough to make up for what he did, but it could at least gain some points back for him.

* In "Lost Verizon" from Season 20, Bart gets a mobile phone, and Marge (under advice of Denis Leary, the phone's owner) activates its GPS tracker, allowing her to keep track of Bart and [[MyBelovedSmother stopping him from doing anything she doesn't like]]. Lisa tells Bart what has been going on, and Bart manages to take the tracker out and tie it to a bird. Suddenly, Marge begins to see Bart moving at high speeds.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Marge to figure out that Bart has found the tracker.\\

** '''You'd Expect:''' The adults to intervene before the fight escalates any further, and let them figure out what to do with the turkey and the centerpiece. Considering how eager Homer was to carve the turkey, they could have put it where he was sitting, or otherwise let him take care of it.\\

* The conflict of Season 2's "Bart Vs. Thanksgiving" begins when Bart and Lisa fight over the centerpiece Lisa made (which, keep in mind, she worked really, really hard on) because there was no room for the turkey.\\

'''Instead:''' All they do is stand there and watch the kids fight. Grampa was even getting ''excited'' watching it!\\
'''As a result:''' Bart throws the centerpiece into the fire. Homer and Marge do step in, but only after it was too late to save the centerpiece. And judging from Bart's blink-and-you'll-miss-it SlasherSmile, it was no accident. Yes, the adults' ineptitude had led to ''malicious intent''.

* In "The Old Man and the C Student," Lisa's letter to the International Olympic Committee gets Springfield the next Olympics. The town greets them at a ceremony in Springfield Elementary, which includes a comedy show by Bart. Principal Skinner got a preview of the act during rehearsals ... and it's an un-pc routine with jabs at the IOC reps' countries.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Principal Skinner to get Bart to rewrite the act with good, clean material. Or to not let him perform at all.\\
'''Instead:''' He allows the act to proceed unaltered. This naturally offends the IOC, who promptly strip Springfield of the Games and award them to Shelbyville. Skinner promptly assigns ''the entire student body'' 20 hours of community service just to save face.

Much of the humor from the animated series '''''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''''' comes from the characters failipng to recognize their own stupidity, being clueless when others harshly criticize them and so forth, so take this with a heavy dose of TropesAreNotBad.

Note: There seems to be a reoccuring theme where the characters' stupidity is increased in the Non-canon Treehouse of Horror episodes to the point where it does themselves in as the plot requires it so.



'''However:''' One of the running gags in the show is that Burns doesn't recognise or remember Homer no matter how many times they cross each other's paths. Either due to senility or because he just doesn't care. It's not as if Burns would be above child labour either.

* Season 18's "Revenge is a Dish Best Served Three Times" has Homer seeking revenge on the Rich Texan for cutting him off. His wife and kids try to stop him by telling him stories that discourage revenge, starting with Marge's story of the Count of Monte Cristo. Turns out Homer was jamming to Jamacan beats and misses out on the whole story.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Marge to hold her tongue. At least this way, he's too distracted to think about revenge.\\
'''Instead:''' "Weren't you listening? I just told you a whole story about revenge!" [[HereWeGoAgain This reminds Homer that he has revenge to carry out]].

'''Instead:''' Bob arrogantly asks Bart if he has any last requests, giving Bart the opening he needs. Bart requests that Bob sing to him the ''entire score'' of ''[[Theatre/HMSPinafore]]''. Bob complies… and the score is long enough to give the pilotless, drifting houseboat to run aground, knock Bob of the boat and stun him long enough for the authorities to arrest him.
