About

I Just Think They're Neat refers to a scene from The Simpsons in which Marge Simpson attempts to persuade Bart to take a potato to school for show and tell on the grounds she thinks "they're neat." Captioned screenshots of the scene, with various objects photoshopped over the potato, are used by people online to illustrate things they like.

Origin

The scene comes from Season 5, episode 19 of The Simpsons, which aired April 28th, 1994.[1] In the episode, Bart Simpson, dissuaded from showing home videos in class for show and tell, starts wondering what he can show instead. Marge Simpson suggests a potato, saying she "just thinks they're neat".
