colleague wouldn’t believe that anyone in the right

Wiggum (okay, it’s Matt Groening doing all the writing)
enlightens us mere mortals on poetry, homemade presents, science,

is a bad word. He used to crawl around a lot, but now he’s
always sleeping. I painted him purple!); Bart Simpson (But

Wiggum is the boy you’d want to bully and love at the
same time. His book is a hoot. Go on, we know you want to
own all the books in “The Simpsons Library of Wisdom”
