Ned turns off the Simpsons' freezer when he discovers Homer has been using his electric to power it so to stop the meat contained in it going bad Marge makes dozens of sandwiches, which go down well at school.

This was a fun episode, with a lot of strong jokes along the way.

It does falter slightly towards the end, running out of steam as it tries to tie everything together.
