Continuity mistake: When we see the overhead shot of Krusty crying at the Simpsons' table (just before he explains his story), we can see that Krusty has no meat on his plate. When we first see the family and Krusty after the story, there's meat on Krusty's plate. This is visible in the 'Homer's tuxedo' mistake picture.

Suggested correction: It should be noted that a considerable amount of time has passed while Krusty is telling his story. Note the candles in the screenshot for example, they have burnt out during the story. Its reasonable to assume that there would have been a chance for them to change during this time.
