Fiscal cliff this.

Fiscal cliff that.

President Obama makes his pitch on Twitter.

John Boehner counters.

Blah, blah, blah.

There's been plenty of chatter on this week's biggest political and economic story, and rightfully so.

It's an important moment for the world's largest economy.

But, by far, the most entertaining fiscal cliff offering comes from our friends at Fox.

Not Fox News, mind you, but the part of Fox that's responsible for The Simpsons.

Funny?

Check.

Smart?

Political?

You betcha.
