Synopsis


Bart messes with Krusty the Clown's life yet again, this time getting his idol busted for tax fraud. An audit reveals that Krusty is one of the worst scofflaws in history and the IRS seizes all his assets and sells them at auction. In the throes of financial despair, Krusty crashes his plane, The I'm-On-A-Roll-A-Gay, into a mountain, killing himself. While mourning Krusty's death, Bart and Lisa start getting the sneaky suspicion that the clown actually faked his own death to avoid the taxman. After tracking down Rory B. Bellows, the man they suspect is Krusty, their suspicions are confirmed. Krusty did fake his own death, and now he will fake the death of Rory B. Bellows, whose life is ensured for millions and signed over to Krusty. With his new inheritance, Krusty can start his life over and return to showbiz.
