Ned Flanders Hey - this is kind of funny. Before I was lead back to Christ, I would watch Simpsons on TV. When I'd see Ned Flanders, I'd just about go haywire! I'd want to change the chanel, I didn't like him that much. Why? Well, Ned never curses. Ned loves his neighbors. Ned never loses his temper. Ned goes to church. Ned loves his wife (deceased). Ned loves his children and is teaching them to love the Lord. You know Ned! Recently, I discovered that one of my favorite characters on the Simpsons was...dum-dum! Ned Flanders! In fact...I was starting to act like him! Of course, Ned is only fiction. He's actually named after a street in Portland that runs through the Pearl (gay) District. Sideshow Bob is named after the Terwilliger Curves in Portland. Krusty is named after Rusty the Clown (almost named after Ramblin' Rod...anybody in the NW remember him?). I'm prou-diddly-oud to be like Ned Flanders! Hee hee.
