Marge was making brownies in the kitchen when she heard loud, angry noises coming from the living room, where her husband Orville was watching television. When she went to see what all the commotion was about, she found him watching a football game and cursing at his team, which was losing badly.
Marge went back to the kitchen and put the brownies in the oven. She began washing the dishes, and before long she heard more howls of outrage coming from the living room. When she went to investigate, she found that Orville had changed channels and was watching basketball. Again his team was getting shellacked, and he was telling them what he thought of them in no uncertain terms.
Marge went back to the kitchen, took the brownies out of the oven, and finished washing the dishes. After a few minutes she noticed that Orville had become very quiet. She went to check on him.
This time she found him watching a World War II movie. He looked up when Marge entered the room and said, “I decided to watch something where my side wins.”
