And sadly in a understandably respectful fashion, Fox will be retiring the character. I guess Bart will finally be graduating to a new grade. Or most likely in an easier move, the class will get a new teacher. Maybe Ned Flanders will cover her teaching duties for the remainder of the seasons. Ned as Bart’s teacher could lead to hilarious hijinks.
Oh my god! It just occurred to me as I was writing this that this will be the second wife of Ned Flanders to die. Talk about bad luck in both real and fictional life.
Side note: In case you were wondering why the picture is all crystallize. The FOX corporation has a strong hold of the internet in relation to all images to the Simpsons. I do not dare poke the beast and place an image.
