Since it’s Halloween, why don’t we watch the Simpsons special now rather than five days from now?
UPDATE: Five days later and it looks like this video has finally been pulled. Oh well, it airs tonight anyway…

In fact, to say that this company moved slowly is not just an understatement, it’s an affront to the word “slow”. 1200 baud: that’s slow. Mail-in-rebates: really slow. Glacier movement: really, really slow. This company: about as fast as fossilization.
The groundbreaking comedy show was a good deal raunchier than you may remember… (NSFW language)
