"Lisa, if the Bible has taught us nothing else—and it hasn't—it's that girls should stick to girls' sports, such as hot oil wrestling and foxy boxing and such and such." -Homer Simpson
Based on his Biblical principles, I wonder if Homer Simpson would approve* of the Derby Dolls and L.A.'s burgeoning roller derby scene. On the one hand, Derby Dolls is a women-only league. On the other hand, despite an abundance of fishnets and short shorts, there's nothing artificially "foxy" about it: if you skate into that ring, you'd better keep your head up, because these chicks are not messing around.
*I realize that there is a possibility that there is some late-season "Simpsons" episode where Marge joins a roller derby. If it didn't happen in the first 14 seasons, it didn't happen.
