The Simpsons ended almost 20 seasons ago.

The Principal and the Pauper, episode 2 season 9, 1997. What a travesty.

I know I'll get raked over the coals, but I like that episode. I liked the build up and suspense. To get so invested in cartoon characters to get upset if they play with the back story a bit... well, the rod up your butt must have a rod up its butt.

I wasn't allowed to watch Married with Children or Simpsons until high school. When I was finally allowed to watch I didn't understand how anyone could watch these shows and not feel dumber by the time the credits came up.

This is manufactured outrage.

I don't know a single person that gives a shit about apu or the simpsons.

Seriously, if a few hundred loud mouths on the internet can get anything they want banned, society is fucked.

This is EXACTLY what's happening. A few faggots fain "outrage!!!" are they get there assholes licked with apologies from whoever "offended" them in the first place. 20 people call a news outlet saying they're going to boycott sponsors because the personality said something that hurt there feelz and demand that personality be fired. This is the world we live in. The left 95% of the time wins because they have fake outrage actors on a payroll just waiting for the call to go protest and scream about something.

Society has been fucked for a century, then.

I don't know a single person that gives a shit about The Simpsons as they are now.

I'm getting tired of all this fake outrage, from both sides.

[–] BlackGrapeDrank 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

both sides?

it all comes form the left.

[–] CrudOMatic 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

both sides

Sure thing. One side is complaining about an imaginary grievance and acting like a stereotypical character in a TV show is worse than the holocaust, and the other side is sick to its gills with professional victims going into apoplectic fits over NOTHING and demanding everything - including the law - be changed to suit them and only them.

This is why multiculturalism can never work - minority shitskins are incompatible with Western culture & society, and always try to turn the place into the hellholes that they left. They are the prototypical guest that shits on your dinner table as "thanks" for the food.

How can the show be killed when it's already dead?

[–] tholinz 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Bullet to the head. Simpsons is the walking dead.

[–] tanukihat 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

the walking dead

You know fans refer to it as "Zombie Simpsons" now? Because it's just lurching forward, lifeless?

Beginning of the end? I thought they stopped making new episodes a decade ago...

[–] tanukihat 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Even earlier. The ones since then have been mostly the same, bland stuff.

[–] kjell 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago  (edited ago)

If been getting by leaching off pop culture and celebrity cameos. Where the celebrities are never made fun of or denigrated in any way. It's all very sterile.

Next the jews will be crying out in pain as they get Mr. Burnschild removed.

I think I speak for everyone when I say, The Simpsons are still on? Jesus fuck how many seasons is that? All the original writers and actors must have retired by now.

[–] puppy528 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Nah, several of them have died of old age.

[–] bagano1 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I just don't like Fox as a network. It seems very corrupt, keeping shows on the air long past when they should have been cancelled. NBC is just as bad refusing to cancel SNL.

[–] smackdownfletch 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Yeah they kept Firefly going for too long, really killed the show for me.

[–] Butterbread 1 points 5 points (+6|-1) ago 

Is Apu going to blow himself up? Or maybe his wife will cheat on him and he'll get convicted of throwing acid in her face. Gang rape?

[–] tanukihat 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

He won't get convicted, that's not how it works. If she cheated, she gets convicted of adultery and she's probably stoned to death.

[–] Butterbread 1 points 2 points (+3|-1) ago 

Oh I haven't been watching the show. Didn't realize Springfield implemented Sharia law.

When you cannot make fun of people's race (not mean fun, just good natured fun), then society is in serious trouble.

[–] midnightblue1335 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

It used to be endearing. You'd rag on your Irish friend, calling him a "mick", you'd make fun of your buddy for being cheap because of gypsy heritage, you make fun of your Asian friend's driving- do you think people were offended when Archie Bunker called someone a "stupid Pollack"? Or did they find it funny? Did any Pollacks who happened to be watching suddenly become overwhelmed with despair and kill themselves?

This crap is really disturbing to me as a man. I grew up with sports, military, etc.- we were absolutely ruthless with each other. But it helps to develop a thick skin. If your friends have called you a faggot five million times, when you encounter a situation where some guy is trying to pick a fight with you and he calls you a faggot, the name-calling has less of an effect on you. You've heard it before. You can take it and dish it out in return.

Without this, the moment a situation escalates to insults, it can cause a fucking adrenaline dump. Yes, an adrenaline dump from being called a mean word. I've seen it happen to people with low self-esteem. You can practically feel the cortisol dumping into their bloodstream as they get all tensed up. The insults have a visible, physical effect on these people. And now, about 1/2 of society are made up of this kind of person.

It truly seems we are doomed.
