This Sunday's episode of "The Simpsons," which is titled "Four Regrettings and a Funeral" because that is a pun, features a long and delightful "Hobbit"-themed couch gag. We see Marge as Gandalf, Moe as Gollum, and Mr. Burns as Smaug -- who gets way desolate, man. Plus, the ring becomes a stand-in for a condom, which makes entirely too much sense.
In addition to the "Hobbit" mockery, Sunday's episode will kill off one of Springfield's longtime residents. Boy, I sure hope it isn't Homer.
