On yesterday’s episode of The Simpsons:

The scene:

Bart is working as a bartender at a Mafia Boss’s outfit. The Mafia Boss is using Bart’s house as a store for stolen cigar boxes. Bart sees on TV that the Mafia Boss has been named as a suspect for this robbery. Bart rushes to the outfit and then…

Mafia Boss: You are 8 hours early for work boy. I like that.
Bart: Are you a criminal?
Mafia Boss: Ok boy. Let me clear your doubt. Is it wrong to steal a loaf of bread if your family is starving?
Bart: I guess not.
Mafia Boss: In case you have a large family, is it wrong to steal a truck full of loaves of bread?
Bart: I guess not.
Mafia Boss: And what if your large family likes cigars more than they like bread? Is it wrong to steal a truck full of cigarette boxes?
Bart:Absolutely not!

Awesome reasoning that!

Wow! You are the first person in Bangalore who seems to like “The Simpsons” apart from me. I guess i’m just not meeting the right people.
