Q: What’s your go-to quote from The Simpsons — not your favorite necessarily, but the one you’re most likely to use on a daily basis?

Really? This is the best question you can come up with? Why would I use any phrase by “The Simpsons” when the main characters are male, Homer and Bart?

When I was working at Yahoo Search Marketing, I could have said “Isn’t that just pointless busy-work?”

Or how about “That story isn’t suitable for children.”

Then there’s always “It’s not my nature to complain, but so far today we’ve had three movies, two film stripes and an hour and a half of magazine time. I just don’t feel challenged.”

I imagine that when the major film studios read critics reviews of their blockbusters they think much in the same line as Principal Skinner: “Of course we could make things more challenging, Lisa, but then the stupider students would be in here complaining, furrowing their brows in a vain attempt to understand the situation.”

All quotes are from Lisa Simpson.
