I think it was something I hadn't come to expect from The Simpsons at that point and the feeling has stuck with me. If South Park had done it, i probably would have laughed myself silly (Family Guy is another), but I hadn't experienced that sort of humour too much by the time that episode popped up and I wasn't prepared for it to go there. I think that because they've continued to make fun of the character later on and lampooned the notion, it's made it easier for me to watch.
