Wednesday's Word

We fail at updating. It's just that going from no blog to something of substance is quite challenging! We wanted to get a few notes taken on other episodes before we jumped into another full-on blog post.

So today, we bring you Wednesday's Word (well, more like phrase): pulled a boner (season 1, episode 8: "The Telltale Head").

Wait, wait, hear us out, first...

We were a little puzzled by this phrase. You probably are, too. First of all, "The Simpsons" have been on the air since 1989, and words meant different things back then. As Homer and Bart are being chased by an angry Springfield mob, Homer reluctantly says, "you know son, I've pulled a few boners in my day." Here, this phrase means to commit a silly or foolish mistake. Yeah, that's what we thought.

Write-up #3 coming soon. Be sure to tell your friends.
