Homer: Mmm, chocolate. D-ohhh! Marge, we need some more vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream.
Marge: I’ll get some at the store tomorrow, Homer.
Homer: Mmm, chocolate.

Why does Homer ask Marge to buy Neapolitan ice cream if he only eats the chocolate? Wouldn’t it just make more sense to buy only chocolate ice cream? Or perhaps, as usual, I am over thinking these things.
What I love the most about this joke is that apparently eating only the chocolate portion of the Neapolitan ice cream is something that runs in the family:
I’ve utilized Neapolitan ice cream when making the Duff Gardens Beer Smoothie and Frosty Chocolate Milkshakes. That stuff really comes in handy. Now let’s forget all our troubles with a big bowl of chocolate ice cream!
