Marge Simpson’s Letter To First Lady Barbara Bush

To whom it may concern

A letter is so overlooked these days with the convenience of emails but you have to remember a clearly thought out, well written letter goes a long way.

So much so that Marge Simpson back in 1990 during The Simpsons second season wrote a letter to the First Lady Barbara Bush when she called the show, “the dumbest thing [she] had ever seen,” in an interview with People magazine.

These women are married to the most powerful men in the world so I guess they feel they can express themselves. Read Marge’s polite response below.

“The Simpsons” Feature in “Apollo 13” Trailer

Homer Simpson takes one small step for man kind 

Apollo 13  was the seventh manned mission in the American Apollo space program and the third intended to land on the Moon while Homer Simpson is one of the dumbest characters you will see in your life time.

Doesn’t sound like a good combination does it? That’s what I thought until I saw this well crafted Apollo 13 and The Simpsons Mashup.

All I can say now is God Speed Homer…God Speed!

 

Ay-Caramba! TV Channel dedicated to The Simpsons

Fox Look to Give The Simpsons its own TV Channel

TV Channel

Legendary TV show The Simpsons will quiet possibly be getting its very own TV channel.

News Corp.’s Chief Operating Officer Chase Carey had this to say about the idea:

Carey said there have been a “number of meetings” to determine how to capitalize on its library of episodes of The Simpsons and he mentioned a digital channel featuring nothing but Homer and the gang as being a possibility. Carey said it is incumbent on the company to take advantage of a show that is “unique in television with a volume, too, that is unprecedented.”

No Rush

The deal may be in the works but don’t expect the Simpsons Channel on your sky box while new episodes are still being pumped out.

If the Simpsons where to air every episode from start to finish (episode 500) it would take 10.5 whole days to get through them!

 

Top 6 Steve Jobs Parodies in Animated Comedy

STEVE JOBS!

YOU CAN NO QUIT WORK! THAT LIKE JOHNNY CASH HAVE NO MONEY – @DRUNK HULK

Steve Jobs, we have so much to thank for the work you have done. Are we talking about the iPhones, iPods , the Macbooks and other Apple Products? Nope. Okay so we must be talking about the movies that his investment in Pixar has helped create? Not that either.

It’s the appearances that Steve Jobs has made in animated comedy. After Steve Jobs resigned from Apple he may be gone but not forgotten. Here is a tribute to the man behind the half eaten Apple in the Top 6 Parodies in Animated Comedy.

6. Robot Chicken – Zune Man

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – no it’s Zune Man

Apple is known for being revolutuary but what happens to those products that become obsolete. You remember the Compact Disk? It was like a CD but more…compact. Robot Chicken holds nothing back in showing how great those products were with the Zune – Man to the rescue as a bonus!

5. The Simpsons – Mypods and Boomsticks

The prices of Apples products – “Don’t get me started”

MyPods, MyPhones, MyCubes, MyPhonies and MyTunes. So many products you don’t need but it’s something about them that makes you want to fork out an arm and a leg to purchase a MyPod as The Simpsons would say. Lisa finds out the hard way of the prices at Mapple.

4. Super News – Steve Jobs Vs Bill Gates

PC or Mac, the age old arguement

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, the two heavy weights of computer retail are the spawn of the age old argument of nerdom. What’s better ? A Mac or PC but Super News give us a way to settle the feud. Instead of us arguing we will leave it to a battle between Gates and Jobs for a winner takes all battle royal.

3. College Humor – Charlie and the Apple Factory

The best new iPad feature? Golden tickets. 

You ever wonder what makes Apple so special. Why it looks so slick with such minimalism? College Humor takes a trip into the Apple factory, who knows what you may find. To be the man behind Apple you’d think you would have a bit of a personality but this is borderline insanity from Steve Jobs in this.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

2. Futurama – Attack of the Killer App

Why is it called an Eye – Phone? I’ll explain after I install it. 

“It’s $500, the battery can’t hold a charge and the reception isn’t very- shut up and take my money “. That couldn’t some up Apple enough. Their solution to the iPhone reception problem was – don’t hold the phone that way. There is the Crackberry for the Blackberry and Jobs has created the Crapple. Once you slide your finger over that glossy screen for the first time staring at your glorious apps – you’re hooked. Isn’t that right Fry?

1. South Park – HumancentiPad

Do you actually read the Terms and Agreements?

If you update your itunes without reading what you are agreeing to you can end up in the same situation as Kyle. To think with the ipad is mass production , what else can Steve Jobs produce. A product that’s part human, part centipede , part web browser and part emailing device- how about a product that just works with no catch 22’s.

Steve Job’s you will be missed but with you gone it’s going to be all on Bill Gates and well he’s kind of boring. 

Best Animated TV Comedy Of All Time – Your Vote

College Humor’s Results

The top spot for the best TV Comedy of all time has been discussed, battled and raged about over many years.

College Humor decided to end all the talk and put it to a vote. Fans of the site had a chance vote for The Best TV Comedy Of All Time. The results didn’t throw up many shocks, all your favourites are included, minus a few english classics.

What will not come as much as a surprise is that the top 2 best TV comedies of all time are 2 animations, yep no actors needed. Legendary shows The Simpsons and South Park Hit the number 1 and 2 spot respectively.

The People’s Top 5

5. Family Guy

The King of the Cutaway, Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy is so funny that it played a joke on Fox by being canceled and making DVD money after the fact. Some people don’t like the non sequitur style of the famous Family Guy gags, but those people just remind me of the time I was locked in a monkey cage in Venezuela with Gary Busey.

4. The Office

There’s nothing like relaxing after a long day at the office by watching people in an office, and there’s nothing more American than taking something from Britain and making it our own. The U.S. version of the The Office pays homage to the classic original, but ultimately finds its own voice, which is definitely a feat worthy of a seat so high on our list.

3. Futurama

Getting accidentally frozen cryogenic-style and waking up in a future where Katey Segal is a one eyed babe is every slacker’s fantasy, and Futurama is the vehicle that lets us live that dream! I mean, who doesn’t want to be best friends with a hard-drinking robot or have pets that poop dark matter? Yea the future sure does look great. Unless of course you live in New York… Enjoy your mutanthood…

2. South Park

Who knew that the crappy cardboard paper you used to play with in preschool could make you millions? Like The Simpsons before it, South Park showed us what animated humor could be if it were on cable. Barf humor and anal probes propelled the series (and its network) to super star status. We now live in a world where we can say “shit” on basic cable. South Park did that.

1. The Simpsons

The Simpsons has come a long way from its roots as a short on The Tracy Ullman Show, as it gears up to enter its 23rd season. This house of Homer is both an animation and comedy institution. In fact, The Simpsons was a major influence for most of the shows on this list. I mean, c’mon. How many shows have had a catchphrase included in the freaking dictionary?

Vote For Your Favourite

It’s great to see the top 5 dominated by 4 animated comedies. So the questions we pose to you is what is your favourite Animated Comedy?

You have a choice of Family Guy, Futurama, South Park and The Simpsons.

EW argues the case.

College Humor’s results put The Simpsons as number one. Over at Entertainment Weekly things got a bit heated. Even StayToonedIn writer Peter Bakare has his say

Out of the 4, It would have to be South Park! The Simpsons have over 20 seasons and to keep up the level is impressive but if you had to be honest with yourself when was the last time The Simpsons actually made you laugh continuously throughout the episode?

Lisa Goes GaGa for Guest Star Lady Gaga on ‘The Simpsons’

“Lisa Goes Gaga”

Since the very beginning, I’ve always wanted to have on the most iconic personalities of our time, and she’s it. – Matt Groening

GaGa helps with Self Esteem

The Simpsons and Lady Gaga are teaming up for an upcoming episode of  The Simpsons about self-esteem and sequins entitled Lisa Goes GaGa

The episode finds Gaga rushing to Springfield after finding out the town is swarming with low self- esteem. There, she rescues a depressed Lisa through the powers that be GaGa.

GaGa says she took her experience seriously and with all sincerity:

I make music, but I don’t do voice-overs every day of the week, and their characters are so awesomely convincing and sincere and wild and funny, I had to remind myself constantly of the sincerity of the humor. That’s what I was trying to focus on, not putting on a character too much and really being as sincere as I could with the lines. I would say this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.

Simpsons executive producer Al Jean said that it was the first time the show has had a “show business legend” younger than the series itself.

This is one Simpsons Episode You can’t afford to miss out on. With all the guest stars to appear on The Simpsons, you rarely find one that actually lives a life as crazy as a prime time Animated Comedy.

“Lisa Goes GaGa” will air in the spring of 2012 as part of the ‘Simpsons’ 23rd season, which debuts September 25, 2011 on Fox.

If you can’t wait to see GaGa and The Simpsons together then check out the Video Below

“The Hangover” stole their plot from “The Simpsons”

What happens in Vegas also happens in Vegas.

 

The Hangover one of the funniest films to be released would bring a tear to any eye with a roar of laughter but wait hold up – The Simpsons one of the funniest TV Shows would bring a tear to any eye. Is that all they have in common? I think not.

Viva Ned Flanders 

This episode aired when Simpsons were arguably around in their prime, Viva Ned Flanders 10th Season 1999 has the striking similarities to the plot of the Hang Over.

  • Homer goes to Vegas.
  • They wake up married to Hookers.
  • There’s a tiger involved
  • Then there’s Drederick Tatum (Mike Tyson)

The Simpsons Hangover

Don’t believe us. Gave your eyes below.

It’s quite scary the resemblance but then again what else is there to do in Vegas. I’m sure Jon Lucas and  Scott Moore the writers of Hang Over have just fallen for what South Park calls Simpson’s Already Did It syndrome.

Simpson’s Did it!!
