>The Rover Hendrix joke has been described by the show's writers as the worst joke in Simpsons history.

Do you agree?

maybe at the time, it was pretty underwhelming, as a kid who grew up on and loved the show, and a guy who was really into hendrix, I didn't get or enjoy the joke in any way. so. yeah it's lame, but I find gross-out humor about 1000x more bad than just a bland joke.

I never thought it was a joke. i thought the dog was a symbol for the loneliness the world felt after the passing of jimi hendrix, and how everyone desperately wanted to be with him again.

Truly one of the most touching moments in the show.

Maybe the worst classic season joke because you can't even begin to know horrible Simpsons jokes until you've...yeah,

As bad as a guy that did nothing wrong going insane and committing suicide as a cynical fuck you to people complaining about the drop in quality?

Or that time Homer got raped by a zoo animal?

Frank Grimes was a classic episode, though.

What's to get?

The premise of Grimes was a real person being in the Simpon world. Not an f u to the audience.

>>78347474
that wasn't a joke, it was a visual gag. learn the difference

Anyone see the recent Hendrix movie? The person who played him was godawful.
>>
Better than any joke they write today.
>>
Isn't the joke that he had to pick up his puppy but never did because he died and now it's an old dog?

Andre 3000?

>>78347474
Worse than every joke written after about 2005?

I don't know, that's a tough call.
>>
Not at all.

The worst is probably "Wow... a 1950s nostalgia diner..."

It not really bad, just flat.
I wouldn't even call it a joke. Its just a statement.

Also the dog would have been dead for 20 years if it had belonged to hendrix

What team of writers said that and at what time?

I like that one.

I guess he means the DVD commentary.

Go to bread wasn't supposed to be witty, it was supposed to infuriate Lisa.

>>78348782
