Maine meme makes the big-time

You probably remember a couple years back, when those loonies from the Oddfellow Theater in Harrison, Maine, put up a video of themselves recreating Las Vegas's Bellagio fountains in explosions of Diet Coke and Mentos. They got tons of attention, media coverage, whatever.

But now they've really done it - the latest episode of The Simpsons, which aired tonight on Fox, disclosed that the biggest prank Bart ever dreamed of playing on Principal Skinner was to mix a mountain of Mentos and a mountain of Diet Coke inside Skinner's office. It didn't quite go that way, but Bart still got away with a pretty good explosion, with some help. Catch the rerun on Fox On Demand if you missed it.
