Guys, this is season ONE of the Simpsons.
the best part is that this is an irony moment (the joke is that Homer is not very bright but says this and we don’t expect it) but totally appropriate when you think about his job. He’s a blue-collar worker, how could he not know? Even a dim bulb can see a job like his isn’t fair.
God I miss when The Simpsons was subversive and smart.
