1. Jamaican Krusty and “The Itchem and Scratchem Blow

Last season, on an episode entitled “Yellow Subterfuge,” The Simpsons gave us their most extensiveโ€”and, arguably, funniestโ€”nod to Jamaican culture yet. Finding himself broke, Krusty franchises his name out to Krusty the Clown impersonatators from around the globe, specifically Ireland and Jamaica. Not only do we get a glimpse of how a Jamaican Krusty would sound, but a one-off yardie version of The Itchy and Scratchy Show, dubbed “The Itchem and Scratchem Blow.” It might be a stretch, but do you think Matt Groening, a fan of Jamaican culture, put a smart spin on his famous cat and mouse team, worthy of standing up to Rastamouse’s popularity? We’re not ruling it out.
