The kids are shown one of those lousy 16mm educational films "NUCLEAR
ENERGY, our misunderstood friend'' .
Narrator: When most people think of nuclear energy, they think of this...
A-Bomb: BOOM! [the kids cheer wildly]
-- Nuclear Energy, our misunderstood friend, ``Homer's Odyssey''
""But when we mean nuclear energy, we mean this.'' A Jetson-like
family enjoys their electrical appliances. ""But what exactly is nuclear
energy? I don't know, but I know someone who does, Smilin' Joe Fission.''
Smilin' Joe Fission speaks with a Texas accent. ""Hi there energy eaters!''
SJF introduces the rods of U235, which are hot due to radioactivity . So
they go for a dip in the pool. ``Last one in is a rotten rod!'' The water
becomes so hot, it boils. The rods yelp, "Ouch, ouch!'' The steam
generated is used to turn turbines and produce electricity.
Uh-oh. Looks like there's a little left-over nuclear waste.
[pulls out a hand broom] No problem!

[sweeps the wasties under a throw rug and stomps them down]
-- Smilin' Joe Fission, "Homer's Odyssey''
One of the wasties escapes, and SJF kicks him aside. ("Ow!'')
