'The Simpsons': Itchy and Scratchy go Jamaican and smoke pot - Watch

It turns out the "Krusty the Clown Show" on "The Simpsons" is a very different program in Jamaica. In a sneak peek clip from the next episode of "The Simpsons," someone gets a hold of the show's satellite feed, complete with "The Itchem & Scratchem Show."Instead of attacking each other with mallets, like Itchy and Scratchy, the Jamaican counterparts are wielding a bong and a gigantic joint. "They smoke, they toke. They smoke and toke and smoke," the theme song goes. From there, Itchy rolls up and smokes Scratchy. Sadly, this would be the perfect place for a Poochie cameo, but no such luck."The Simpsons" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/the-simpsons-itchy-and-scratchy-go-jamaican-and-smoke-pot---watch.html

TMZ caught up with Kelsey Grammer to ask him about whether Bob will meet his end or not, and Grammer is none the wiser."Not to my knowledge," he says. The odds on it being Bob are fairly small, because even Kelsey admits that death is something new to Krusty the Clown's former sidekick. "They've already killed him 20 times," he jokes. "He comes back a lot."What has been revealed by executive producer Al Jean is that the character dying has won the actor who voiced it an Emmy Award. The best bet is a guest star, which means Rabbi Hyman Krustofski (Jackie Mason), Princess Penelope (Anne Hathaway) and Sideshow Bob. However, the main characters have also won the award, along with Edna Krabappel and Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.Krabappel is off... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/12/the-simpsons-kelsey-grammer-chimes-in-on-major-character-death.html
