The Problem of Cognitive Dynamics

On an episode of the Simpsons, Homer says the following to Marge:

"First you didn't want me to get the pony. Now you want me to take it back. Make up your mind!"

Homer does not grasp the way the expression of Marge's want has to change to accommodate changing circumstances. That's why it's funny.
