The Simpsons - Hungry Hungry Homer
It's now NinteAirdate: 03-04-2001
Blockoland, not Legoland. They're different, honest.
The Simpsons take a family trip to Blockoland to see the sites. A bit of trouble with Lisa's gift shop toy has Homer stand up to the clerk to get her toy fixed. Winning a victory at Blockoland inspires Homer to stand up for the little man everywhere.
Of course he gets in trouble. Did you see that coming? Yup, same here.
Helping a buddy get a refund for a baseball season ticket, Homer stumbles across Duff Beer's plan to move the Springfield Isotopes to Albuquerque. H.K. Duff the VIII distracts Homer with extra malty beer while Duffman drugs him. Upon waking Homer gathers the media to expose the scandal. Unfortunately, H.K. Duff and Duffman outsmart Homer and frame him as a liar.
Desperate to recover his good name Homer stages a hunger strike. No food, no donuts, no pork chops, not even any applesauce. Can he do it? Homer chains himself to a post in front of Duff HQ and swears off food till Duff spills the beans. He means business but so does Duff. Twisting the facts Duff makes people think that Homer's hunger strike is a show of support for the Isotopes. D'oh!
Sticking with it for 12 days Homer is finally unchained by H.K. Duff and offered a mouth-watering hot dog. Spotting the Albuquerque dressings and new Albuquerque Isotopes wrappers, Homer reveals Duff as a liar and clears his name. Then he eats the hot dog. Then he eats more, a lot more. Homer's hunger strike ends and the Springfield Isotopes are saved.
