    Didn't we have this article last week.

    Anyways, fact number 10. Nobody cares about the franchise anymore and Zombie Simpsons explains why.

      I was about to get upset at you for saying that nobody cares about the franchise any more, but then I got sidetracked by reading Zombie Simpsons and now I understand what you mean and feel kind of bummed out. RIP Simpsons.

        Well, I guess I can't say nobody cares about the Simpsons anymore. Everybody cares about wanting it to be good again.

        and you managed to read all of Zombie Simpsons in 20 minutes?

          No, read half less than half the chapters, skimmed through the rest. I'm meant to be working now so I had to go quick! Actually, even when I'm not working it's how I consume most info these days, time is... my precious.

          Having said that, it looks like there's only about 40 minutes of reading there if you're a fast reader! Literature should not be savoured and enjoyed, it should be consumed and discarded as quickly as possible! No time for appreciation! Onwards! :P

      Nah we didn't and wouldn't do that. We just post things in our own order. As simple as that.

        oh man, now i feel bad :(

        but truthfully, the exact same article was posted last week in kotakuAU, like Neo Kaiser mentioned, but now for some reason you can't find it.

          You mean the one on Gizmodo from Jesus Diaz 4 days ago?

          http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2014/02/9-simpsons-facts-that-you-probably-didnt-know-about/

          Must have been the Giz one. No need to feel bad! We do sometime bump posts, but usually if something big happened over the weekend and I think folks might have missed it.

    its been a long time since iv watched the simpsons, but i did a catch up on the weekend, i managed to watch 7 episodes, and 3 out of the 7 had massive drug influence, people just sitting around smoking a meth pipes, injecting heroin, and general crack junkies... wtf?!

      How many of those episodes were, "Homer gets a new job"?

        Have no fear, we've got stories for years. How about a crazy wedding where something happens and doo ditty do doo

        Not too sure what your referring to sorry...
        but they were consecutive episodes...

      I'd say most TV shows now have references to drug influence.

      I am 18 and I know for a fact my parents and I can't watch the same movies/tv shows. They get pissed off at how nearly everything relates to drugs, sex, murder, pretty much bad things which I dont really care about.... At least while they're around :)

    I don’t know what I expected when watching this but 7 of the 9 things being about the voice actors isn’t really what I had in mind.

      I haven't watched it but based on your comment I'm going to say one of them is about Mr Burns original voice actor being the voice of Starscream and Cobra Commander.

        Nope. I would have found that to be more interesting tbh.
