Simpsons - I Thought They Can't Read
It takes place in the episode where Homer becomes a religious missionary to some island in order to escape paying PBS $5000. To teach them about religion he starts handing out Bibles. He is then told that they (the islanders) can't read. Later on Homer has a casino built for them. When Homer unvails the name of the casino, the same islander who informed him that they can't read reads out "The Lucky Savage" (the name). How can he read that, but not the Bible?

The islander TOLD Homer that the others couldn't read because he didn't want Homer to force the Bible onto them! The creators of the show do a great job at mocking religion throughout the seasons!

It's obvious that that one islander can read but the others can't. That's why he's reading the name for them.

Listen to yourself. You said "[Homer] is TOLD that they (the islanders) can't read." and then you say that they can read. SO obviously, whoever told him that they can't read didn't know that they could.
