[[Homer]] buys some spoiled ham from [[Apu]] in the [[Kwik-E-Mart]], eats it, and gets extremely sick. After getting better, Homer angrily goes to Kwik-E-Mart to complain about the spoiled meat, for which Apu gives Homer spoiled shrimp. Once again, Homer eats the shrimp and becomes sick again. This time however, [[Kent Brockman]] (who fronts the investigative news program ''[[Bite Back]] with Kent Brockman'') gives Homer a giant novelty hat containing a spy camera to expose Apu for selling spoiled food. Caught in the act, Apu is immediately fired from Kwik-E-Mart. He protests that he did not violate company policy. The company executives agree but explain that it's also company policy to make a scapegoat in these situations. Apu's replacement is actor [[James Woods (character)|James Woods]], who is researching a role for his next movie.

Full Story Edit

Homer buys some spoiled ham from Apu in the Kwik-E-Mart, eats it, and gets food poisoning. After getting better, Homer goes to Kwik-E-Mart to complain about the spoiled meat, for which Apu gives Homer spoiled shrimp. Once again, Homer eats the shrimp and becomes sick again. This time however, Kent Brockman (who fronts the investigative news program Bite Back with Kent Brockman) gives Homer a giant novelty hat containing a spy camera to expose Apu for selling spoiled food. Caught in the act, Apu is immediately fired from Kwik-E-Mart. He protests that he didn't violate the company policy. The company executives agree but they explain that it's also the company policy to make a scapegoat in these situations. Apu's replacement is actor James Woods, who is researching a role for his next movie.

After getting fired, Apu does chores for Homer because he thinks that he is in debt to Homer for selling him spoiled food and that helping Homer will pay off his debt of karma.
