Things We Saw Today: The Simpsons’ “Steamed Hams,” But With Jeff Goldblum

The “Steamed Hams” clip from the Simpsons’ wonderful vignette episode, “22 Short Films About Springfield” is absolutely one of the most delightful things to ever air on television. It’s also the subject of a meme that in recent years has taken over much of the internet. “Steamed Hams but…” has led to some truly talented “shitposting.” (Mashable has a great timeline of the meme’s development.) But I think we have to agree that the time to shut the gag down has come because it can’t possibly get any better than this.

While doing press for the next Jurassic World movie, Jeff Goldblum talked with GameSpot. But since no one really cares about another Jurassic World movie, they used their time with him for much more important matters: asking him to read Skinner’s part of the “Steamed Hams” sketch. It’s absolutely perfect, and it’s made even better by the fact that Goldblum had somehow never seen the bit before.

What did you all see out there today?
