Kent Brockman badmouths her and is immediately fired, so he frames Marge and says she had an affair with Mayor Quimby.

Get Off The Bus! - Sideshow Bob is cleaning out the school buses. He finds a seat where he believes Bart sits, so he installs a spring that will fling Bart to his demise if the bus stops too fast. Everyone thinks that it is actually a bomb on the bus, and eventually Otto thinks of a plan to save the students from doom.

They Saved Homer's Brain! - Homer finds an advert for $500 -- the only catch being he has to be a guinea pig for a new pill that is supposed to make people smart. Surprisingly, the pill works, and Lisa feels that there is finally someone who she can share her smartness with. However, she realizes that she'd actually rather have the old Homer back -- for the sake of her family -- so she stops him from having surgery that would make the effects permanent.


Book description
In Simpsons Comic on Parade, campaign fever is heating things up in Springfield, and the Simpsons are embroiled in political mud-slinging, pandering, pundits, and opinion polls. Democracy was never this much fun. Then Marge Simpson is mad as heck, and she's not going to take it anymore! Fed up with tawdry talk shows, she sets out to clean up the airwaves by serving up her own show, baked fresh with wholesome goodness. Next you're on a bus packed with explosives and obnoxious kids. What to do?!? Bartholomew J. Simpson, that's what. And finally, after years of vicious name-calling, Homer Simpson has decided to reconcile with his nemesis--his brain. See Homer change from bovine to Einstein, while all of Springfield reels from the repercussions.
