I am one for modest outfits. No loud fashion statements from me.

I saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
It's a pink moon
It's a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.

The Simpsons hit 500

From the Guardian, who have had their readers rank the top 10 episodes.

You Only Move Twice is not only the best Simpsons episode ever but one of the best episodes of ANYTHING ever," reckons @WilburWhateley, a view that's far from unique. It is written by the most prolific, celebrated and reclusive writer from The Simpsons early years, John Swartzwelder – a man who when smoking was banned from his local diner, bought the booth in which he used to sit, smoke and write and installed it in his own home. Spoofing Bond, with brilliant sight gags, featuring the fantastic supervillain/ entrepreneur Hank Scorpio and a relentless string of classic gags, it's the one Simpsons episode everyone agreed they loved.
Scorpio: "By the way, Homer. Which is your least favourite country? Italy or France'?
Homer: "...France"
Scorpio: "Nobody ever says Italy..."

Interestingly, all of your top 10 come from the first decade of The Simpsons - in fact of the 100 or so episodes voted for, only a handful were from the 21st century.

Should we drop everything and buy a food truck together? 6.How hot does your gas oven get? 7.Even my new stainless steel cookware set isn’t as slick as you. 8.If you shave your legs as well as that fennel, I can’t wait to touch them. 9.If this were an artisan meat market, I would take you home for dinner. 10.I’d turn vegan for you. 11.You’re my missing ingredient. 12.I’m local, all natural, homemade and certified organic: wanna taste? 13.Your skin is smoother than the finest panna cotta. 14.Do you prefer French Press or Bialetti for your morning coffee? 15.Have you ever tried bone luging? 16.If I was a chalkboard, would you write the daily special on me? 17.You’re spicier than sriracha. 18.I think we’d grow a great organic garden together. 19.Can I serve you a frittata made with local ducks eggs in bed tomorrow morning? 20.Your eyes are as effervescent as this sparkling water.

Muhammad Ali About Angelo Dundee, Shuffle and Money - YouTube

Dundee, who oversaw the career of Muhammad Ali, is reported to have died of a heart attack in Florida having suffered from a blood clot in recent weeks.
Inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame in 1994, Dundee was among the sport's most admired characters.
He oversaw the careers of Sugar Ray Leonard, Jimmy Ellis and George Foreman, among others, but it is his work with Ali that defines his legacy.
Cornerman to Ali for much of his 21 years as a professional boxer, Dundee was present for all of the three-times world champion's greatest moments.
"Angelo died surrounded by family and friends," his family said in a statement.
