    The Simpsons

    Any big Simpsons fans in this joint?
    I'm a HUGE fan, I try and find the time to watch at least two episodes a day and have been doing so for about 10 years. Nerdy? Maybe. But, its where I get most of my humor from (seasons 1-15 especially). I just got back from FL, went to Universal Studios because of the new Simpsons Land. They did a great job with it, the Simpsons ride is killer, the whole place has a lot of old school references. I had a Krusty burger and a Buzz Kola, my wife had a Duff and we tried a Flaming Moe. Here are a couple of shots:

    In Moes:



    For you Simpsons heads that will understand this:



    And one of my favorite Simpsons clips ever:

    Thats awesome! I love the Simpsons - definitely one of the most iconic shows on television period. My friend is in the process of planning out a whole Simpsons sleeve! haha

    Homer: Let that be a lesson to you...never love anything.
    Lisa: Even you?
    Homer: Especially me.

    Nice! They didn't have that when we were there - just the Simpsons ride. Although I did get a hat at the Kwik-E-Mart - Homer in his underwear with the legend You're Never Too Old To Rock.

    So many classic lines over the years, but one of my favorites was when Adam West was on the show and derided the new movie.

    West: And Michelle Pfeiffer? The only true Catwoman is Julie Newmar. Or Lee Merriweather. Or Eartha Kitt.

    Cool stuff. I've never really been into The Simpsons, but their accolades are quite impressive.

    I remember seeing a few Simpsons shorts on the old Tracy Ullman show. I thought it was cool that the "Life in Hell" guy was getting some stuff on TV.

    I was flat-out flabbergasted when the Simpsons became a full-fledged TV series... and gobsmacked that it has run as long as it has.

    The weirdest thing of all is to see all the Duff Beer logos in Italy. I don't know where the stuff even comes from, but it's all over the place!

    Was talking with some guys at work about how much we missed Phil Hartman. Always loved his characters on the Simpson's. Also love to watch Sideshow Bob episodes.

    The Bort reference still makes me laugh.

    Absolutely on both counts.

    Every time Bob steps on that rake...no matter how many times I see it, I still laugh.

    Very sad to see that Marcia Wallace died. I'm guessing that's the end of the Edna Krabappel character.
