The Simpsons Eat Injera


The Simpsons' car breaks down in Little Ethiopia so Bart, Marge, and Lisa opt to (cautiously) experiment with "ethnic" food. It's a good play on the sheltered-suburb-meets-diverse-city stereotype. Particularly the exoticization of Ethiopian and Korean food by the "foodies" that show up. The clip is a great commentary on the fact that much of America chooses to identify non-white culture as "ethnic" and "exotic," ignoring white-European ethnicities all together. Lisa: "exotic... vegetarian.. I can mention it in a college essay... this is amazing!"
