This one has me stumped.
In tonight's episode of The Simpsons, Smithers hurls two books at rampaging robots. The robots speed-read the books, which turns them gay, and therefore, harmless.

One of the books was Thoas Mann's Death in Venice. The other one just says Mery. All I can come up with on-line is some weird bibliographic database of authors who's name includes suffix "mery" WTF? (and seriously, WTF?)

I don't get it.
