Grease Theft: Life Imitates Simpsons

When I saw the Reddit story about the theft of used grease from restaurants, I immediately thought of Lard of the Dance, the Simpsons episode in which Homer incurs Willie’s wrath by trying to steal his “retirement grease.” I was not the first to make the connection. Among those who beat me to it, I’ll link to Steve, since his blog has a cool name, and his post includes a relevant image.

You may also remember the episode from such voices as Lisa Kudrow’s; she was “Alex.”
