The Simpsons: The Burns and the Bees

BurnsRatner.gif No joke — they just did a Simpsons episode about Bruce Ratner and Atlantic Yards.

This past Sunday, Bruce Ratner got remixed with Mr. Burns as he razed a bee sanctuary for a new "state of the art" arena and high-rise complex, complete with a relocated basketball team and Nets' play-by-play man Marv Albert.

As Mr. Burns says, "Welcome to the American dream: a billionaire using public funds, to construct a private playground for the rich and powerful."

NoLandGrab: Bleepin' hilarious, but does this mean that Atlantic Yards has jumped the shark?
