The "Just Stamp the Ticket Man" is the name given to a man who frequently appears to make sarcastic or angry remarks.
The man goes to the Leftorium to get his parking validated because it is the only store that does it without requiring a purchase. Ned Flanders says he is 'right as rain,' or, as we say around here, 'left as rain,' but the man bluntly responds, "Just stamp the ticket." When the Squeaky-Voiced Teen tries to hand him a flyer he brushes him, saying, "Don't touch me." He later tells Barney Gumble (who is handing out flyers dressed as a big baby) that he "sickens" him. At the Springfield Swap Meet, he derides Marge's "cool" wishbone necklaces, stating he doubted his "son or daughter is that stupid". He informs Homer he could have used the money he lost from not working to buy tickets to the Pigskin Classic football game from a scalper, rather than camping out for eight days to get to the front of the line. The man tries to buy $2 worth of gas from the Kwik-E-Mart but is disgusted by Apu's overcharging. He later punches a hippie singing "Sunshine on My Shoulders" during Springfield's heat wave, and punches Homer in Springfield Mall when he approaches to suggest he looks "like a man who needs help satisfying his wife."
Behind the laughter
- He has been dubbed "Just Stamp the Ticket" Guy after his line in "When Flanders Failed". Josh Weinstein calls him the "Just Stamp The Ticket Man" in his and Bill Oakley's Q&A with NoHomers.net.
- It is possible that the appearance in "Simpson Tide" is not the same character. The character looks just like him, but does not sound the same although he is still voiced by Hank Azaria.
- A character that very heavily resembles him appears in Homer The Heretic, this character has the same voice and face, the only difference is that this character has a diffrent hair cut and hair color.
- He was originally going to appear in The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase, but was cut for unknown reasons.
