The family have to go to a funeral for Marge’s aunt 🙁 and Selma and Patty are advised to get a kid after a video-will warns them not to die alone without children and a hubsband!
Homer promises the kids that they can go to Duff Gardens but then Homer gets sick after eating a rotten sandwich. In order for Selma to learn the resposibilities of parenthood Marge decides to let Selma take the children.
The children wear out Selma after a ride featuring the creepy animatronic dolls/gnomes:

The building task for Duff Gardens is “polishing Beer Goggles” which is a reference to the scene in Selma’s Choice where Bart picks up a pair of Beer Goggles in the gift shop which portray the world differently and portray a sexier version of Selma!
This is episode was the first appearance of Jub-Juh and the Seven Duffs
The phrase “I am the lizard queen” and the speech is a reference and tribute to Jim Morrison’s poem “Celebration of the Lizard’
Lisa’s hallucination is based of the artist Ralph Steadman’s work!
Bow before Lizard Queen Lisa! Get both Duff Gardens, the only amusement park without a loading screen, and Lizard Queen Lisa in the store today.
