And in recent news… more articles I’ve saved up from the last week. While I know anyone with fingers, the internet and the desire can Oogle and post about Simpsons News, I also know some folks don’t think about the Best. Show. Ever. as often as me. Not a day goes by where I don’t experience real life and think, there’s a Simpsons episode about that. I know… I’m weird. Anywho… the interweb has had a lot of stuff recently and I thought I’d share. I wrote a quick blurb for each but of course, the articles are where the whole info is.
First up, something for all my science nerds. If I told you two scientific journals accepted a paper from Mrs. Krabappel and Maggie, you’d probably think I was just describing the next weird Simpsons episode starring Elon Musk but sometimes you just can’t make this stuff up.
The ethernet must work… nuff said. Next up is some old news republished a little bit ago about a Simpsons spin-off that was once planned. While I agree it’s good they didn’t do this, I can’t help but wonder what the show would have been like. If you really are jonesing for spin-offs though, just watch Season 8, Episode 24: “The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase”.
Now for something more recent. Did you hear about Pharrell Williams doing a cameo on The Simpsons in February? So happy it looks like he’ll be wearing his big hat.
Of course, Simpsons nerds like me know Homer is a big Thomas Edison fan (just watch Season 10, Episode 2: “The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace”). Remember Homer’s electric hammer? Well, someone awesome remembered it too and made it real!
Gotta love ze Germans. Speaking of Germany, the next article bears on one of the low points of world history. I almost didn’t include this article but with the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and the fact I am a history major in college, I felt this Simpsons art needed to be included. If the holocaust is a sensitive subject, just skip by it. Just remember, we always need to remember the good with the bad lest we forget what human beings are capable of.
Last up in a far less depressing subject, information on just what those zany Simpsons writers eat. Double snake wine? A hobbit reference? Walrus mustaches? Color me intrigued and mildly hungry.
So food is family but like the writers of The Simpsons, this fuzzball should probably ene this round of Simpsons news and spend time with his familia… or eat them… whichever comes first.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
