Ned Flanders is a Super Dad

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

When someone mentions an annoying neighbor, the first name that comes to your mind is Ned Flanders.

In this episode, I break down the reasons why Ned maybe am annoying neighbor but is secretly a super dad. 

Everything from his jobs to family and even religion, Ned does it all and after this episode, you will understand why I think that he is also a very underrated character of all time. 

 

Tangents would toby provides unrehearsed, unedited masterfuls as he drives without knowing his topic till actual time of recording. His skills of one take recording makes them stand up. Driving in the southeast part of Saskatchewan. His show is unmatched. So let's tune in and see what his topic is. A tangents with toby. Buttercups, lollipops in sunshine. Welcome to tangents with Toby. What a beautiful day if you are a polar bear. As our temperatures aren't dipping around thirty degree Celsius, our little tick tags are starting to shrink. But it is what it is. I choose to live here. What can I say? Okay, the topic that we're going to be talking about today has been...

...a very unique topic that I have been, how just say, holding a pawn for the last year, year, and now I know I should have said it a lot earlier, but I feel today is a day that I need to do it. I'll give you a little bit of a club. All right, you're ready. Don't Dan Dad and Dan Daan't Dada da Da, DA, Dadada, Dadadada. Just in case you didn't understand that horrible transition or trend, whatever it's called. It's the simpsons. I'm not going to actually do a simpsons show, but rather certain character. This is going to be one of the most underrated, underappreciated but one of the most recognized...

...people on the simpsons, with even one of the catchiest catchphrases. How do they do neighborno? Yes, that is correct, Ned Flanders. All right, so ned flanders, as everybody knows, is homer simpsons annoying neighbor. But in reality he may be annoying to most people, but if you take a look at this neighbor, Goddamn he's like a Super Dad, one of the most under rated and seriously underappreciated characters. I have a bunch of topics that I want you, guys to more or less stop think and just pay...

...attention or kind of think about it, and you will actually see flanders as a totally different person. All right. Number One, he goes to church. Of course he's a church goer. What do you think about it? He goes to church once a week. That he is what like two three hours every Sunday. He probably goes on holidays like Easter and Christmas. Then at Christmas there's been documentations of him going out carol going and Caroling with his kids. That's couple hours. So he has a lot of time that he spends at the church, which you know. That's there's nothing wrong with it, but he just mark that down. He spends at least two three hours every week at church. Next, yes, it is sad, but he...

...is a single father. Where Maud, she was killed up, I guess I am in with the same lay, which kind of sucks. But now you have the responsibility of him being a single dad, which which blows. So a single parent and that actually, if you think about it, goes towards everything. Like before, Maud was there to help, but now he's a single dad doing all the stuff. He volunteers, this time at charities like, for example, the Super Kitchen. I don't I think he went every Tuesday or something like that, even in winter. That is incredible that he spends that much time doing all this stuff. All right, he's a...

...volunteer firefighter as well. He's a documented volunteer firefighter. He used to own a store called the left Orium, which went under. What's the only reason why it went under is because of the competition that popped up and people are saying that one in three people on the symptom symptoms simpsons are left handed, while one in nine in reality are left handed. Don't know why I brought that up, it's just one of those kind of documents that I thought was kind of interested. Him and Maud they did own Fang crest enterprises, which did kind of like rugs and mugs, so he does have a side hustle...

...on making money. Is Scared. I'm not going to go down that world that you guys used me taken. Former pharmaceutical company clerk. Why can I sing? He was a great for teacher. Miss that episode, but it was documented them a few websites. He was also a principle. All right. Now, these are the next ones that I find more interesting than the rest of the other ones, like his jobs or whatever, and I really quote. I really don't know how he does this time wise, by any chance that they have they put ned in the backyard or front yard creomy.

There's so many times where homer throws something over top of the fence and next you know ned is there mowing, gardening flowers things like that. His Yard is magnificent. I don't know how many hours a day he puts to make sure that comes out nice or how many times are we he does it, but reality he's a massive gardener. All this one. Despite his long dog his body is, Oh Goddamn, Ryan Reynolds, move over, Ned Flanders bodies hotter than yours, dude, there's no doubt about it. Like that one time when homer was trying to set him up, net up on a...

...dating APP or like one of those video things, there was a picture of Ned's body, like even kerbobble was shocked on Ned's body, because you know, net always wears that sweater but when he takes that sweater off, shoes has he was cut from stone. But the catch is you never seen net working out. What's the okay, I did go to the gym for a bit. I did learn a bunch of things, and the one thing that was always said was it's easier to keep a body than it is to gain it. So of course he might go to the gym or work out at home once in like every hour whenever, like you know, have a routine, but still he needs to go for the gym for that and maybe Sunday is his cheap day where he goes to church. That's a good question,...

...isn't it? Next, he takes vacation with his kids. The one episode it had him on the Ski Hill with very tight outfit and of course homer kept looking at his butt. So he takes vacations and just some times that you're looking you're thinking to yourself, how is he doing this? Even if he take a look on the inside of his house, his house is clean. Don't get me Rod, don't get me wrong, but not up her don't get me wrong, but rod and todd probably do help with the chores on the inside. So there's really no issues with that, because if kids...

...can help keep a house clean, then that's absolutely perfect. Over, bunny and on, all of this, all this stress, all of what's going on. He's sixty years old, like seriously sixty years old and he does all of this. That is amazing. Now it okay, homer, he doesn't do too much. He's married, he has three kids, he's got a dog, he's got a cat. He tries doing as little as possible and March does quite a bit. Peter Griffin, if three kids a dog tries doing his very little. Does try hanging out with his friends port exact...

...same thing. How is that going? So it just even if you take a look at other shows with Dad's like L Bundy, he'd rather sit on his ass and do nothing. I know he's depressed because of peg, but come on, Ned Flanders needs massive credit. You guys. WHO's with me? That's what I thought. Anyway, I had to get that off my chest. That's been eating at me for like the last year, year and a half. So that is a reason why Ned Flanders is a freaking Super Dad who needs to be respected. Well, you guys. I know it is what it is, but I govern let you guys go. It's getting...
