I thought that one was funny. Hurricane Neddy is my idea of an episode with a backstory that obnoxiously damages a character. One comparison between those episodes that's relevant to my thoughts on each one is that at the end of the Skinner episode they agree never to talk about it again. Lisa brings it up on another episode, and I hated that as much as most people hate the initial episode. Hurricane Neddy is expanded from a hilarious cutaway that much much funnier as a 3 second joke that should never have been mentioned again.
