| Comic Story information
Sense and Censorability is a Simpsons Comics story first printed in Simpsons Comics #39.
Principal Skinner orders Bart to do a presentation in front of the entire school about a historical figure and to make matters worse he must do it with Homer. On a trip to The Android's Dungeon Homer finds violent history-based horror comics in the adults only section and decides to use them for research. With Springfield residents including Chief Wiggum and Mayor Quimby watching, Homer and Bart deliver an obscene version of American history leading to Homer's swift arrest. The police department demand to know where Homer obtained the horror comics and Comic Book Guy is arrested soon after for selling the comics.
The two men end up on trial and it goes badly due to Homer's stupidity and Comic Book Guy's overuse of geek terminology. As they are about to flee to Costa Rica, Bart gets an idea. On the final day of the trial Bart argues that the jury are not suitable peers and that only geeks would be able to give a fair verdict. In response, the jury members are indeed replaced by geeks but instead of a jail sentence, Homer and Comic Book Guy are sentenced to public hanging - namely holding up a sign at a comic convention.
