Sneed’s Feed and Seed

Meaning

What does Sneed’s Feed and Seed mean?

Sneed’s Feed and Seed is a popular innuendo, originating from The Simpsons episode “E I E I (Annoyed Grunt)“. “Sneed’s Feed and Seed (Formerly Chuck’s)” is the name of a general store that Homer Simpson visits in this episode.

Viewers of the show, after reading the “Formerly Chuck’s” part of the sign, came to the conclusion that before it was owned by Mr. Sneed, the store’s name was “Chuck’s F-ck and Suck”. Given that the services provided by Sneed rhyme with his name, this was seen as a classic Simpsons joke, this one being subtle enough to go unnoticed by those who aren’t in on it.

As such, the joke has spread online over the years, and can now be seen used to confuse those unfamiliar with it, or to troll the unsuspecting. It appears on photoshopped images and viral videos on the Internet, and is particularly popular on the image board website 4chan.
