Were you the one who commented on a YouTube posting, saying it was mean of Brain to taunt Buster at lunch? "I bet that tuna surprised was cooked in an ELECTRIC oven... are you sure it's AMISH enough for you?"

But anyway, today we were treated to "Pick a Car, Any Car; Jenna's Bedtime Blues"... does anyone else besides me find the first half of this episode to be just slightly broad? I mean, Arthur was clearly being intentionally difficult when the Reads were trying to find a new/used car, because he didn't want to lose the car they already have, but it seems to be that after a while, either Mr. or Mrs. Read would take him aside, and say something along the lines of, "Come on Arthur, try to be reasonable", or "Look Arthur, we know how much you love our old car, but it's had it, we have to find something else." I mean I GET that Arthur is attached to their car and all, but still, it seems to me that his parents would give him a talking to when they were at Crosswire Motors.

Other than that, was anyone else shocked to see their car was suddenly purple instead of magenta like it usually is the first time they saw this episode?

I'll have to look at the post on Youtube. Yeah, but you have to think about it from a kid's perspective in that situation there, especially if they grew up in that vehicle as it's part of their lives.
