Yeah, Tom and I Go Way Back

Simpsons writer Matt Selman shares a funny anecdote about a conversation he had with a stranger who was smug about avoiding the tube:
Okay, look, I'm fine with people never watching TV. They're lying, but I understand. I don't watch that much TV myself. But why do people at parties feel such smug delight at telling you (okay, me), without hesitation, that they don't watch TV? If you met a dentist at a party, would you announce that you don't brush your teeth? Would you tell a structural engineer that you don't ride in elevators?
Read how Selman turned the tables.
