That reminds me of one of my favotie Simpson epsidoes-- the one on illegal immigration. The citizens of Springfield spend an enormous amount of money to form a BEAR PATROL that sports, amongst other things, its own stealth bomber.

It leads to the following exchange:

Ho>mer: Well, there's not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol is sure doing its job.

Lisa That's specious reasoning, Dad.

Homer Thank you, sweetie.

Lisa Dad, what if I were to tell you that this rock keeps away tigers.

Homer Uh-huh, and how does it work?

Lisa It doesn't work. It's just a stupid rock.

Homer I see.

Lisa But you don't see any tigers around, do you?


Homer Lisa, I'd like to buy your rock.
