If you’re part of that generation that grew up during the golden age of The Simpsons, you’ve referenced (or, more likely, tried to recreate) the iconic one-on-one brawl between Bart and Lisa from season six’s Lisa On Ice.
“Bart, just get out of here.”
“Hey, you get out. It’s a free country.”
“That doesn’t make any sense.”
“I know you are, but what am I?”
“Get out, get out!”
“All right. But on my way, I’m going to be doing this … [windmills his arms] If you get hit, it’s your own fault.”
“Okay, then I’m going to start kicking air, like this … [kicks up her foot] … and if any part of you should fill that air … [kicks up her other foot] It’s your own fault.”
In a moment I’m considering a Christmas gift to that generation, the Bart vs. Lisa fight broke out in the middle of a match between Killer Baes (Laura James & Heather Monroe) and. RockNES Monsters (BHK & YUMA) at Bar Wrestling’s December 19 show in Los Angeles. Please enjoy Laura James and BHK fighting for their parents’ love!
Thankfully this didn’t result in the entire audience reenacting the ‘The Bar Of War’ fight from season 14, although few Simpsons quotes are more fitting for independent wrestling than, “You talk pretty tough for a man without health insurance.”
Thank you, Bar Wrestling. You ride up in the front seat today because you’re a good guy at sports-entertainment.
