"Ice Cream of Margie (with the Light Blue Hair)" is the seventh episode of The Simpsons' eighteenth season, originally airing on the Fox network in the United States on November 26, 2006. In the episode, Homer gets fired from the nuclear power plant and takes over an ice cream truck business, while a depressed Marge creates Popsicle-stick sculptures to keep busy. The sculptures quickly become popular, and Marge is excited to have a purpose in life until a turn of events divides the Simpsons household. It was written by Carolyn Omine, and directed by Matthew Nastuk. In its original run, the episode received 10.90 million viewers.
Mr. Burns fires Homer Simpson for playing with Carl and Lenny what seems to be a form of hockey with office supplies. Homer gets in more trouble when he fantasizes that Mr. Burns is an ice cream cone and tries to lick him. Homer uses a $100 bill to buy a 25 cent ice cream from an ice cream man named Max. Max collapses and dies while changing the bill into coins. Max's widow sells the truck to Homer, and Homer has Otto remodel the truck a la Pimp My Ride. Meanwhile, the television series Opal -- Springfield's answer to The Oprah Winfrey Show -- has a show about successful women, which sends Marge into a deep depression, as she feels she has not done anything memorable with her life. Marge is inspired by all the Popsicle-sticks Homer brings home, and makes sculptures out of them.
Kent Brockman sees these sculptures and interviews Marge, who says she creates them so they will serve as a reminder of her when she is gone. Kent includes her on a news special, Kent Brockman's Kentresting People. Thanks to the publicity, Rich Texan creates an art show to showcase Marge's talent; however, it opens on Saturday, a day with high ice cream sales. Homer promises to return by 3 o'clock to see the art show. He loses track of time and hurries home, but accidentally crashes into his own lawn in the process, destroying all of Marge's sculptures. Marge says that Homer has ruined her dreams and locks herself in the bedroom.
Homer tries to express how bad he feels by slipping pictures of himself under the door but falls asleep. When he wakes up, Marge is gone and Grandpa is looking after Bart and Lisa, who tell him that Marge left hours ago. Marge is on top of city hall, where she declares she will show the world how she feels about Homer. She reveals the largest Popsicle sculpture she has ever made, and the subject is Homer. Marge realizes that Homer tried to keep his promise to her and make it on time, not that he did not care, much to the shock of a nearby Opal. Marge apologizes to Homer for the way that she acted, Homer apologizes for ruining her sculptures, and the two reunite. The scene shifts 200 years into the future, where that Homer sculpture is the only remaining element of Western art in a world where iPods have conquered humanity, whipping them with headphones for a hobby.
Dan Iverson of IGN deemed the entire episode boring and said it had no general quality to make it interesting. He did, however, enjoy Carl Carlson's line to Lenny Leonard: "See, statements like that are why people think we're gay". He also appreciated the Ali G parody. He gave the episode a final rating of 5.2/10. Adam Finley of TV Squad gave the episode a negative review, and like Iverson, said that it was boring.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
