  16. Rodrigo Deus Says:

    1) My favourites couchs gags of The Simpsons are the episodies of Halloween.
    2) Angle the couch for optimal TV viewing if it’s not already in position.
    Be sure to have the remote control (or controls) all within easy reach of your chosen spot. A TV guide is also a good item to keep handy.

    If you’ve got a Wii, Playstation, Xbox, or any other game device, make sure it’s all in order and ready to play.

    TIPS
    Only get up if absolutely necessary, for example, to go to the bathroom!
    🙂
    3) I think is a good coach, yes.
