Oh, right...anyway, the Simpsons discover another of those events where everybody else in town already knew about it in advance, but this time, they have an excuse for not knowing; they weren't told about it, as it's a town meeting that votes to throw them out of town, and they end up in a community that lacks a few of the "homey touches" like electricity and fuel
