Monty Burns Explains America’s Fiscal Cliff

In a new viral clip for the long running animated comedy, Mr Burns is still depressed after the loss of Mitt Romney in the presidential election.

He attempts to explain the fiscal cliff to viewers, saying: “Think of the economy as a car, and the rich man as the driver. If you don’t give the rich man all the money, he’ll drive you over the cliff. It’s common sense.”

I like the little call-out to Ireland (potato peeling) 🙂

Burns calls for a more ‘progressive’ immigration policy: “I’ve a progressive proposal to let into this country two hundred grimy Irish men a year. I’ve got lots of potatoes that need peeling and stables to be mucked out.”
