On the level

Anyone who lives in Wellington knows that since the invention of Rob Cherry no one in the city has retained the ability to hang anything straight on a wall. The knowledge, once fairly common with people who owned art, has been lost. If you need something hung straight it’s Rob or the highway. It’s the same story in Springfield. In the Simpson’s episode illustrated above (The Twisted World of Marge Simpson, written by Jennifer Crittenden, directed by Chuck Sheetz and first screened 19 January 1997) Marge attends a franchising pitch. The business? Picture Perfect - straight-up picture hanging to-go.
