Last year a man from England named Bart Simpson was arrested for having a firearm in an airport. Simpson is 56, so you can't blame his parents for giving him the kind of name that would result in ridicule and, eventually, a life of crime. ('The Simpsons' has been on for that long.

"The Last Peanut" is widely considered one of the classic bits from "The Simpsons". It comes from the fifth season, and it is hilarious. Doubly so when rendered in clay, so enjoy. Maybe watch it with a few peanuts!
It's the day before the election, and the Mitt Romney endorsements are flying in! The first came from Joss Whedon (who strongly believes Romney can jumpstart the zombie apocalypse). This one is from 'The Simpsons' bad guy Mr. Burns (who is the cartoon embodiment of corporate greed)...
