    This was in response to the previous weeks portrayal of a play where the opening song described New Orleans as a harlot. So they quickly put this in to make up for it.

    Nobody can claim New Orleans didn’t have it coming.

    To THor~: Perhaps a little _too_ quickly; in the United States, the premiere of this episode used the short opening from “Lisa’s Substitute” (with the missing couch) instead, while the next week’s “Lisa the Beauty Queen” used this blackboard instead. (When “Homer the Heretic” reran January 7, 1993 on FOX, the “I will not prescribe medication” blackboard premiered in the US.) Subsequent FOX airings continued to use the swapped blackboards.

    And in syndication, both “Homer the Heretic” and “Lisa the Beauty Queen” used the short opening with no blackboard and the Simpsons meeting their duplicates on the couch (that opening was used in thirtysomething episodes from the first six seasons there).
