Earlier in the week, Dustin wrote about Kelsey Grammer’s “blistering tour de force” of a performance on Boss, which returns to Starz tonight, and since then, I’ve started watching the show. It’s pretty good, but I can’t take Grammer seriously. It’s not that I see him as wine-sniffer Frasier Crane, which is many people’s complaint; I just can’t get Robert Underdunk Terwilliger, a.k.a. Sideshow Bob, quotes out of my head.
“Attempted murder? Now honestly, did they ever give anyone a Nobel Prize for attempted chemistry?”
“I’m telling you Cecil, I can’t take much more of this. Rustic workmen have turned the Sani-Jon into a smoke house, coveralls that don’t quite ‘cover all,’ and a psychotic little boy who will not stop hounding me!”
“By the way, I’m aware of the irony of appearing on TV in order to decry it. So don’t bother pointing that out.”
That’s what I hear instead of terrifying-seeming threats to (other) corrupt Chicago politicians on Boss. So, with that mind, today’s GIFs of the Week is dedicated to Bart’s second biggest mortal enemy, Sideshow Bob.
