In this spoof of The Splendid Source, Mordecai, Rigby and Homer travel, along with Fry, to find out the meaning of a joke told by Zim.


Mordecai: the story I'm telling is based on a true event, as it all started with Marge planing a vacation

homer: what else happen, let me guess we haved to use a plane instead of a train

mordecai: how did you found out

homer: well, a lucky guess of course, good thing the others are keeping incharge of the park house

while at the park house

zim:(checks his irken radar) no sign of the rabbid empire

gumball: well it seems to be strange while no signs of them

Zim: guys, guys

Mordecai: what?

Zim: this joke is funny. Okay, here it is. What did the water say to the ocean?

Homer: what?

Zim: SEA you later!

(Zim laughs)

Marge: we don't get it

Homer: well I do!

Mordecai: why? It's a lame joke!

Homer: you know the sea on the seaside and the see as in we see stuff?

Marge: oh yeah!

Mordecai: Homer, Quips told the joke before and we didn't get it, but then YOU told us that it's funny, just because there's different seas!

Homer: oh great! It pooped my pants!

gumball: oh com on its just a funny joke

(Scene switches to the living room of 742 evergreen terrace)

(Homer laughs)


(Scene switches to Marge and Homer's room. Homer then laughs)


Homer: that's it! Payback time!

(Scene switches to the park)

(Homer walks in in Zim's pants)

Homer: hey


Homer: tell the joke! Tell it

Mordecai: okay

Zim: you win, Homer! I won't tell it again

Homer: actually, I liked the joke. Where did you hear the joke, Zim?

Zim: Dipper

Homer: come on, Mordecai and Rigby! The three park workers are going to the mystery shack!

Mordecai: no way!

Rigby: yeah, and besides, jokes come from everywhere

Homer: yeah, but do you always want to find out

Rigby: yeah, but how?

Homer: a quest, Rigby, this is all for one and one for all!

(The gang get their favourite drinks, make a cheers and drink)

Mordecai: and so began our journey, starting at the mystery shack

(Scene switches to the mystery shack)

Homer: Dipper!

Dipper: hey guys! What's up?

Mordecai: we need to tell you something

Rigby: yeah, where did you hear that joke you told Zim?

Dipper: I can't tell you

Mordecai: why?

Mabel: yeah, Dipper, why?

Dipper: Grunkle Stan doesn't want me to tell other who heard of the joke!

Homer: we're just asking

Dipper: alright, I'll tell

Mordecai: so Dipper told us he heard it from Stan, Stan Soos, Soos Meg, Meg Benson, Benson Skips, Skips Bongo from Life in hell, Bongo Herbert, Herbert Chris, Chris Kent, Kent Uncle Steve, Uncle Steve Barney. So when we checked, it lent us to a bartender in New New York.

Mordecai: Homer, we can't go to New New York! Your wife is planning to spend next weekend there, and this weekend we're spending it at Marine!

Rigby: and we looked long enough! This proves that the joke doesn't have a source!

Homer: we're going anyway, Dimwitheads! Someone made it up, and he's there! And besides, we'll trick Marge into driving us to the airport when I booked! It's more fun than campfires and Marge telling grocery stories! (Imitating Marge) oh, Homer, the sliced bread was on sale, and then I found out that they faked the whole sale! And then... And then... I don't know!

mordecai, rigby and homer left to the airport

zim:(gets his irken pants back , cleans it, and puts it back on) sometimes they never stand, habed they

gumball:(shake his head yes)

at an airplane

Rigby: a bartender? So cool!

Mordecai: here's New New York, right there!

Homer: where's...

Fry: oh, he went to Mexico for a week

Mordecai: I can't believe that a boring man can get an awesome job!

Homer: but why the tour?

Fry: this isn't for you Homer, it's for these two. They don't know the planet express. Any questions?

Homer: yeah, where did you hear that joke you told the bartender?

Fry: oh, a bellhop from Washington, D.C

Mordecai: then that's where we need to go

Rigby: I don't know, but I saw one of them back at the bar

Homer: are the following us?

Rigby: Either that or they just want us dead as a.. As a... Mordecai's uncle

Mordecai: and why are they wanting us dead

Fry: I guess that someone does not want us to know the joke's origin

(Scene switches outside the car)

(Scene switches to Fry singing)

Fry: I learned the truth at seventeen, That love was meant for beauty queens. In high school, girls with clear-skin smiles, Who married young and then retired.

The valentines I never knew. The Friday night charades of youth, Were spent on one more beautiful. At seventeen I learned the truth.

And those of us with ravaged faces, Lacking in the social graces, Desperately remained at home, Inventing lovers on the phone. Who called to say come dance with me. And murmured vague obscenities. It isn't all it seems, At seventeen.

A brown-eyed girl in hand-me-downs. Whose name I never could pronounce, Said, "Pity, please, the ones who serve, They only get what they deserve.
