A Simpsons writer revealed what happened *after* Milhouse's dad was fired from the cracker factory, and it's gold

One for hardcore Simpsons fans.


KIRK VAN HOUTEN, aka Milhouse’s Dad, is one of television’s all time great sadsacks.

He’s someone we all relate to at our bleakest moments.

Of course we all remember when Milhouse’s Dad was fired from the cracker factory…

But now Josh Weinstein, a writer on The Simpsons, has shared what happened to Kirk after he was fired from the cracker factory.

Weinstein shared an early draft of a script last night, which included a scene that was cut from the episode due to time constraints.

Nooo! My severance package!

So funny, so bleak.
