A Simpleton Plan is a The Simpsons Winter Wingding story that appeared in The Simpsons Winter Wingding #5.


Moe gives Homer a ride home and they find a crashed aircraft, which is loaded with a sauce for hamburgers.


On a cold day, in Moe's Tavern, Moe asks if anyone wants a burger before the tavern closes. Nobody does, as Homer thinks they taste like shoe leather, and Barney says they're worse than Krusty Burgers. Afterwards, Moe offers Homer a ride home, and he accepts it, but not long after they crash into the snow. Moe and Homer get out the car, and Moe notices the moonlight glinting off of something bright and shiny in the trees. Moe goes off to see what it is, and finds a crashed cargo plane. Inside, they find barrels full of delicious sauce. They load the barrels into Moe's car. Back at the tavern, Moe puts the sauce on a burger and Homer eats it. He starts drooling and begs for another. Moe bangs his fist down in joy, and warns Homer not to tell anybody about the sauce.

Meanwhile, the driver of the cargo plane arrives back at it, but notices the missing sauce and informs his boss about it. His boss turns out to be Krusty, who says whoever stole it is going to be very sorry.

Back at home, Homer creeps in. Marge turns on the lights telling Homer that it's three o'clock in the morning. Homer blurts out what happened, and Marge is concerned.

The next day at Moe's, everyone is shouting for more burgers. Outside, however, Krusty overhears the conversation and realizes where his sauce is.

Elsewhere, Marge asks Professor Frink to analyze the sauce.

Back in Moe's Tavern, Barney notices green spots on Homer's face. Just then, Fat Tony, Legs, Louie and Krusty burst in, but Moe distracts them with his burgers. Just as Moe is about to hit them with a bat, Marge runs in with results from the analyzation. She informs everybody that the source is toxic, showing everybody what happened to Homer.

Afterwards, they dispose of the sauce in the river, where they think it can do no harm, but Blinky grows a fourth eye.
