I am a total geek for "The Simpsons." I mean, I am sure I am a geek in many other ways, but I am willing to admit to the Simpsons thing. I don't care that it should have probably should have gone off the air seven years ago, or that you have to suspend disbelief of disbelief in order to keep up with the changes they have made over the years, I still think it's the best show on T.V.

I still mourn Troy McClure. And Maude Flanders. And the original voice of Manjula
Nahasapeemapetilon. And yes, I spelled that last name from memory. I also can tell you the layout of the Simpson's house.

I have Simpsonized myself. I have Simpsonized my family. Actually, that is the only representation of the entire family I have (circa 2008). I would Simpsonize Meg if the Simpsonizer wasn't broken. I am actually thinking that I will write to the illustrators to see if they could do it for me for a small fee. Or large fee.
Really, it doesn't matter -- that is how important it is to me.


I have all the DVDs, and the movie on DVD. I own Simpsons chess. And Simpsons Monopoly. And Simpsons Scene it. I have both Simpsons albums. I have figurines. I have all books -- even the one about exploring philosophy through the Simpsons. I even have the Simpsons bath salts, which I still use even though they gave me a rash. If I could have one wish granted, well, it would be for world peace. Of course, if I was granted a second wish because my first wish was so noble, I would wish to be a character on the Simpsons.

I love the Simpsons so much I don't even care that the fact it is now 20 years old makes me feel ancient.

Ooooh, Simpsons....

The U is offering a writing 3000 class. It's all about the writing of The Simpsons! I might take it.

The Simpsons hitting the 20 year mark makes me feel old. My age doesn't. But that does.

I can't tell you how many Homer moments I've had when someone was relaying their latest family drama at the rib shack and all I'm thinking is Mmmmmm, ribs....

"D'oh!" is my go-to phrase when I have a...well, D'oh! kind of moment.

I admit I am not the fan you are - but I do love me some Simpsons. Troy McClure. *wipes away tears*

How many times have you won Simpsons Scene-It??? Hmmm....

KAM said...

One of my favorite's is also the "D'Oh." I can't tell you how many times a day I say this...but I've decided it's way better then using the profanity that would probably come out of my mouth in these moments instead. My employees, children and husband probably appreciate it.

Oh gawd, it's 20 years already? I suppose I should go out and invest in some wrinkle cream now...

My husband has Simpsons Chess too! He relates well with Homer. I remember watching them on the Tracey Ullman Show and being all excited when they decided to make a real show out of it. I don't really watch it anymore, but my husband still loves it. Not as much as you though. ;)

The Simpson's is a funny show...and it still just as funny as it was back then.
Who doesn't love Homer?

Exploring philosophy through the simpsons? I'm not a huge fan, but that I would like to see.

This post really makes me like you. A lot. I like the Simpsons, but haven't seen it much. The episodes I saw were hilarious, though. And I love that you love it so wholeheartedly. Just makes me smile.

And thank you so much for your comment on my blog--it really helps to have some validation. Plus, I loved the statement, "let them go back to their magical unicorn lands."

My wedding was a Simpsons wedding. My cake topper was Marge and Homer at the prom, my recessional music was the Simpsons theme. On the top of the card box there was Troy McClure with a voice bubble that read "Hi! I'm Troy McClure! You may remember me from such weddings as Kris and Emily's!" The rest of the card box was covered in random Simpson's chacters.
