It’s funny because it’s true.

According to ChaCha that phrase is from from Simpson’s #39 8F03 Bart the Murderer (aired October 10, 1991).

It was spoken by Fat Tony on seeing Itchy and Scratchy for the very first time.

Just something to think about when you read all those Romney/Stench pieces.

Paul Ryan vs. The Stench

By: Roger Simon, Politico

September 25, 2012 04:38 AM EDT

Jonathan Swift did not really want Irish people to sell their children for food in 1791; George Orwell did not really want the clocks to strike thirteen in 1984; Paul Ryan, I am sure, calls Mitt Romney something more dignified than “Stench” and Microsoft did not invent PowerPoint as a means to euthanize cattle. At least I am pretty sure Microsoft didn’t.

And you see, this is where Roger Simon is completely and totally wrong, it’s perfectly true that-

PowerPoint was released by Microsoft in 1990 as a way to euthanize cattle using a method less cruel than hitting them over the head with iron mallets. After PETA successfully argued in court that PowerPoint actually was more cruel than iron mallets, the program was adopted by corporations for slide show presentations.

Conducting a PowerPoint presentation is a lot like smoking a cigar. Only the person doing it likes it. The people around him want to hit him with a chair.

PowerPoint is usually restricted to conference rooms where the doors are locked from the outside. It is, therefore, considered unsuited for large rallies, where people have a means of escape and where the purpose is to energize rather than daze.

Don’t quit your day job.
