    Grandpa: Penny, why don’t you write a play about ism-mania?
    Penny: Ism-mania?
    Grandpa: Yeah, sure. You know, communism, fascism, voodooism. Everybody’s got an ism these days.
    Penny: It sounds like an itch or something.
    Grandpa: It’s just as catching. When things go a little bad these days, you go out and get yourself an ism and you’re in business.
