Fans of "The Simpsons" TV
series (3rd Season, Episode 8F-11, Title: "Radio Bart") may have
noticed a reference to J.P. and the I.C.U.2-TV. In the episode, it's Bart's birthday and
he watches the "Krusty the Clown" show. Krusty sends birthday greetings to a
list of people that scrolls by on the screen. In addition to Bart, one of the names listed
is J.P. Patches. (of course, Krusty charged everyone $8.00 for the service).
"Who, when he saw the first sand or ashes, by a casual intenseness of heat, melted into a metalline form, rugged with excrescences, and clouded with impurities, would have imagined, that in this shapeless mass would turn into smething useful like a glass? Neat huh? I mean without glasses we couldn't see or have anything to put Kool-Aid in!
