Plot

Milhouse’s dad, Kirk, gives a speech to the kids at school. Due to how boring the speech was, Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabappel take Lisa’s advice and visit the Springfield Writer’s Forum to find a better speaker. They find the creator of a popular TV cartoon, Danger Dog. He comes to the school to give a presentation and fascinates the kids by telling them about the cartoon industry.

Springfield is the fictional city in which the animated American sitcom The Simpsons is set. ...


Soon all the kids start drawing their own cartoon characters. Bart's comic is deemed lame by both Comic Book Guy and Stan Lee but Stan encourages Bart to still try. Bart comes up with a hero called Angry Dad, based on the angry outbursts of his father, Homer. He starts drawing comics based on this character. For the comic book series of the same name, see Bart Simpson comics. ... Homer Simpson is also a character in the book and film The Day of the Locust. ...


Bart rolls out the first issue of Angry Dad, which becomes a hit with the kids in school. Comic Book Guy also likes it, and displays the comic in his store. During an autograph signing session in the schoolyard, Bart is approached by a spokesman for an Internet company. He wants to make Angry Dad into an online animated cartoon series. Bart agrees. Jeff Albertson, better known as Comic Book Guy, is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. ...


The cartoon becomes an Internet hit. The only one still unaware of Angry Dad is the inspiration himself, Homer. When Homer does find out, he of course becomes very angry, but his family calms him down and suggests that he address his anger issues. Homer decides to become calm and suppress his rage from that point on. No matter what rage-provoking incidents occur, he maintains his cool, but with great difficulty. Every time he does so, though, he develops a lump or two on his neck, which he pushes down. Homer's new calm demeanor has also taken away Bart's inspiration for his cartoon.


Bart, not wanting to do a clip show, sets up a trap for Homer, meant to trigger another outburst. Later, they go to the internet company office, where they find the company has gone bankrupt. Bart races home to save his father from the trap, which is no longer needed. Bankruptcy is a legally declared inability or impairment of ability of an individual or organization to pay their creditors. ...


Homer reaches home and sees a sign for free donuts in the treehouse, stuck to the door. When he climbs up to get them, he falls through a carpet-covered hole and gets hung upside-down on the laundry line, which starts moving. He passes through a bunch of strategically-placed cacti and then through some dirty diapers. Many lumps on his neck later, he gets to the end of the line, where he finds a pair of scissors to cut himself down. Relieved, he does so, and falls into a tub full of green paint. Homer, now covered in green, closely resembles The Incredible Hulk as he storms through town, raging and punching things around, screaming “Homer mad! Homer smash! Get revenge on world!” Luckily, the cops arrive and restrain him. A chocolate-glazed doughnut A doughnut, or donut, is a deep-fried piece of dough or batter. ... Subfamilies Cactoideae Maihuenioideae Opuntioideae Pereskioideae See also taxonomy of the Cactaceae A cactus (plural: cacti, cactuses, or cactus) is any member of the succulent plant family Cactaceae, native to the Americas. ... The Incredible Hulk The Hulk, often called The Incredible Hulk, is a Marvel Comics superhero. ...


Homer is admitted to the hospital, where Marge angrily berates Bart for aggravating Homer’s rage and causing $10 million of damages. However, Dr. Hibbert arrives and tells her that Bart actually saved Homer’s life by enraging him. The lumps on his neck, Hibbert explains, were actually suppressed rage and could have overwhelmed Homer’s nervous system.
