Anyone else catch this last night? A howlingly funny episode that tackles everything wrong with JUV/YA publishing with an Ocean's 11 twist.

I saw it. I think I recognize Lisa in myself! (Some days!)
I thought they were sort of mean to Gaiman, though obviously he was going along with it. It's pretty standard when celebrities appear on The Simpsons that they portray them as idiots/jerks.

@2 Having met NG a few times (my husband has interviewed him 5 times), I have to say, he seemed to be having quite a lark with the joke, so no worries.

I thought of all of us doing NaNoWriMo this month when Lisa kept facing the blank page :)

I think it was one of their sharper Simpsons episodes, and they eviscerated YA publishing pretty well.
