Is there a funnier moment in The Simpsons than steamed hams?

There may be funnier moments, but nothing is more memorable to me than steamed hams, despite not having seen the show in years. As far as I'm concerned it's the best joke

You are an odd fellow, but you steam a good ham

Maybe not as iconic as Steamed Hams, but Homer's conscious effort to stop swearing while attempting to build a dog house never fails to make me chuckle.


Fiddle dee dee! That will require a tetanus shot.

It's the best dialogue-driven scene in the Simpsons, no doubt. Some short and one-off gags are just as funny to me, though (Sideshow Bob and the rakes, the meeting Homer has with Mr. Burns in which he thinks Burns is trying to seduce him, Homer attempting to impersonate Mr. Burns at the post office).

I think the german version of that scene is even funnier, primarily because they called "steamed hams" "gedämpfte huscheln", huscheln rhimes with muscheln (clams) but it's a made up nonsense word, it makes the entire conversation even more absurd. I also prefer the delivery of Skinner's "Yes" and "No" towards the end.

Steamed Hams is great, but I'd say the entire jumping Springfield Gorge and the ambulance scene from Bart the Daredevil is the funniest moment in the series.

Funnier? Hard to tell but the monorail song is easily one of the most memorable moment of the Simpsons. I swear anyone who saw this episode can sing that song based off memory.


Funnier might be with Sideshow Bob in cape fear.


Unfair to just show the clip consider the entire scene of Bob under the car is great.

Homer :"Hey kids let's drive over that cactus patch"
Bart:"Yes!"
Lisa:"Yeah!"
Sideshow Bob:"No!"
Homer:"Well 2 beats 1."

Every time I see Homer stand on the glass bottomed boat holding his belly taunting the sharks below by saying call yourself king of the jungle! I can't help myself but laugh. It's such a small line and inconsequential to the episode but it's just Homer all over.

Damn it's really hard to select the funniest moment of the Simpsons but I would say that this one never fails to make me laugh (or smile at the very least)


It's a little joke but it works like a charm!

We have a tie. A tie dye. (Hibbert laugh.)

I love this look on Lisa. It's also taken from my fav episode from the whole series, Summer of 4 ft. 2

I would be happy with that. I've seen it hundreds of times and know the lines by heart and it still makes me laugh. Skinner's mum calling for help as the house burns down is the icing on the cake.
