Plot

As a yo-yo craze sweeps through the elementary school, Mrs. Krabappel feels increasingly isolated and places a personal ad in the newspaper. Bart, who has been given one month of detention for breaking the class fish tank, discovers the ad and, realizing it is Mrs. Krabappel's, decides to pull a prank and respond by mail with a new alter ego. Bart pretends to be an adult male called Woodrow, named after former President Woodrow Wilson, with a photograph which actually belongs to ice hockey player Gordie Howe. Bart as Woodrow wrote a letter to meet him at a restaurant, and as she looked excited to meet Woodrow, Bart laughs (although it's more like a giggle), Bart comes out of the movie theater after watching "Ernest Needs a Kidney" and is upset and guilty to see Krabappel crying. He tells the family what he had done, and Marge tells him, "You did a very cruel thing." The Simpsons then write a romantically diplomatic letter to tell how Woodrow must go, which heals Krabappel's wounds. The yo-yo is a toy consisting of two equally-sized discs of plastic, wood, or metal, connected with an axle, around which a string is wound. ...

Subplot

Meanwhile, Homer attempts to cut down on his cursing after receiving a complaint from Ned Flanders. Homer tries to criticize Flanders in return but only comes up with criticizing his moustache, which Ned promises to shave off in return for Homer curtailing uses of profanity. He promises to put money in a "swear jar" -- 25 cents for each curse. In the end, he resists temptations to curse but nevertheless experiences intense feelings of rage. However, his constant swearing - when he builds a doghouse with no door, and when a beehive falls on him - puts enough money in the jar to purchase a dog house for Santa's Little Helper. Homer also launches into a profane streak when a newly clean-shaven Ned Flanders thanks Homer for making him get rid of his facial hair, as his appearance has gotten him hired to star on a TV commercial. Homer calls Flanders 'a dirty bastard' because of this. It has been suggested that Doh be merged into this article or section. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ... Santas Little Helper or once known as Santos L. Halper (voiced by Frank Welker or Dan Castellaneta) is the Simpson familys pet dog. ...


Cultural references

The writers originally wanted to use a picture of Johnny Unitas in the episode. The article in Springfield Magazine, which Mrs. Krabappel reads, proclaims "We Talk With J.D. Salinger". Salinger, a recluse, hasn't been interviewed since 1974. John Constantine Johnny Unitas (May 7, 1933 – September 11, 2002), nicknamed The Golden Arm, was a professional American football player in the 1950s through the 1970s. ... Jerome David Salinger (born January 1, 1919) is an American author best known for The Catcher in the Rye, a classic coming-of-age story that has enjoyed enduring popularity since its publication in 1951. ... A blonde haired, very skilled worker with a 70s look. ...


The 1950s educational film at the beginning of the episode (presumably titled "A World Without Zinc") is a reference to the short animation and live action film "A Case of Spring Fever", which would later be seen in episode 1012 of Mystery Science Theater 3000. It is also very similar to a sketch from Kentucky Fried Movie. At the very end of the episode, Gordie Howe's stats in the NHL and WHA are shown. An editor has expressed a concern that the subject of the article does not satisfy the notability guideline or one of the following guidelines for inclusion on Wikipedia: Biographies, Books, Companies, Fiction, Music, Neologisms, Numbers, Web content, or several proposals for new guidelines. ...
