27 Things You Might (Actually) Not Know About The Simpsons

I knew that Michael Jackson was involved in "Do The Bartman," but I did not know why The Simpsons movie was banned in Burma.

These sorts of videos — the things you didn't know about the thing — are awfully common these days. That said, this one from Buzzfeed Video is pretty good. I didn't know a lot of these, and while I guess Simpsons superfans will probably know a few more than I did, I bet we can all still learn a thing or two.


    Post a text list PLEASE.

      This one's actually pretty good compared to the usual ten minute countdown, He gets through them quickly with no BS.

      Asking the writer to type everything out is unreasonable. Instead of complaining maybe watch the video later if you are so damn busy.

        Maybe he should do his job and not ctrl c then ctrl v.

          Maybe you should get employment here and show us how good of a job you would do, hot shot.
          It's either that, or shut your mouth.

            Well obviously there aren't any vacancies to apply for as they keep these "writers" on their payroll even when they do a shit job.
            [edit] - and there's a comment section so people CAN voice their opinions!

        The nerve of some people, expecting a writer to write content to go along with a headline...

          The content IS the video, if he wrote a list then what would be the point of the video??!

          Oh i'm sorry, i forgot you were owed more from a website you don't pay to read.

            Shhhh it's all gonna be OK buddy. Stop posting then checking back and editing your comments and just walk away into the sunset with the keyboard under your arm and the wind in you hair.

            I know you'll make it zer0entity - you've got the fight in you.

              Thank you, i appreciate that. I know it'll be OK, it's just the pressures of life and the constant threat of terrorism is tearing me apart, and i guess i take it out on people online, even though i know i'd probably get along with them in the real world.

              FYI I'm only editing due to my keyboard having potato chips stuck in there and some of my words were missing letters.

        I thought Homer's theory was a donut shaped universe that he mentioned when he was talking to Stephen Hawking?

        See, this list was helpful, because it outlines the points, but at the same time, doesnt go into so much detail that it makes the video redundant.

        This is what the writers should out as content.. Brief outline with the video elaborating on the points.

        You're hired, shithead!

          I bet you relished saying "You're hired, shithead!" ;)

      EDIT: Disregard, beaten to filling out the list.
