Memes: The Simpsons

The Simpsons, the longest-running American cartoon in history, with its own fair share of memetic goodness.

Please add entries in the following format:
  • The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme.[[/labelnote]] Explanation 

  • The page image caption, of course, commonly used by posters to indicate they've seen something they really wish they hadn't (not too dissimilar to "do not want"). It is sometimes rendered as a C++ function:
    void the_goggles(){} // do nothing
  • Worst. Meme. Ever. Comic Book Guy's most well-known catch phrase, "Worst. (Noun). Ever." (usually punctuated that way on the Internet) has become a meme of epic proportions. The TV show even used it as one of its episode titles (appropriately "Worst Episode EVER", though it actually refers to a cardiac episode).
