The next morning, preparations were underway in the office of Mr. Burns. Homer Simpson, the safety inspector of the plant and two other ubiquitous employees, Lenny and Carl, have agreed to come in early for a substantial compensation. They are busy decorating the office for what appeared to be a party. Mr. Burns gives instructions:
Thats ityesright there. Excellent! he chortles.
Youre sure he doesnt suspect anything? Lenny asks.
Oh, no, Im certain. Ive been extra demanding and abusive all week just to make sure he wouldnt catch on, Burns replies.
When all the crepe and streamers are hung, Lenny and Carl unfurl a banner announcing
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. SMITHERS. Homer has already been distracted by the catered goodies lying on a long table for the breakfast buffet.
SIMPSON! Burns yells.
Homer whirls around only to be caught with a mouth stuffed to capacity.
Cant you wait until the party ACTUALLY starts, man?
