The Simpsons - Beavis and Butthead Did It Already?

So, did everyone catch last night's Simpsons? Did the first act, where Bart was gathering/stealing golf balls to sell back to golfers for a profit (in a zany montage) ring familiar to anyone else?

I'm 99% sure this was already an episode of Beavis and Butthead. Further research pulled up this description of the episode I recalled (Yes, it's called "Mr. Anderson's Balls:")

While searching for a missing kid, Beavis & Butt-head stumble upon a golf game with Mr. Anderson, then follow him around the golf course to steal his golf balls and sell them to other golfers.

MTV has the full episode available for viewing on their website.

This reminds me of the South Park episode where Butters gets frustrated because The Simpsons have already used every zany plot he can come up with.

After 19 seasons, has The Simpsons exhausted its own story wells? So much that they're recylcing 14-year-old Beavis and Butthead gags?

I'm not sure. Honestly, I stopped watching the Simpsons regularly in high school. It just stopped being funny. It's like a mediocre sitcom now, whereas before it was edgy and risque. The movie was boring as all hell.
