"Mayor Quimby went cheap and hired some college students to fix Springfield's Y2K problem! But like all undergrads, they procrastinated, and now if it's not fixed by midnight the entire town will blow up - again! When Professor Frink tries to save the day, he accidentally sends Springfield back to the Stone Age. At least the only bugs to deal with there are mosquitoes."
Store panel.
