I have long maintained that at some point a few thousand years in the future there will be anthropologists studying our culture and they will come across references to the great philosopher Homer Simpson, the wisest man on earth. Homer understands things that most of us never will. It is Homer who says "Help me God. What is it I'm paying you for every Sunday?" Only Homer expects a return on his investment in the collection plate. Is Homer on to something? I think he is.
