Simpsons: You did a nice little tribute

Simpsons: You did a nice little tribute
I haven't watch the show in year, but this is sweet.
Marcia Wallace, who played Bart Simpson's teacher, passed away recently. She was 70 years old, and surprising given that her character on the show never really aged past middle age. She recorded all of her lines for the rest of the season, but the character will “retire” after that. (Sounds like Blade Runner)
From Huffington Post, (("The Simpsons" executive producer announced that Wallace's character would be retired following her passing. "Earlier we had discussed a potential storyline in which a character passed away. This was not Marcia's Edna Krabappel," he said. "Marcia's passing is unrelated and again, a terrible loss for all who had the pleasure of knowing her.” ))
I always liked the chalkboard gags from the show, given that they are all different from episode to episode. This time they put up the character's name of their fallen comrade. Also note the mournful expression on Bart's face. That's a nice touch.
Here's collection of various chalkboard texts.
