My brother joked that the most recent episodes of the Simpsons seem like they’ve been aimed at me. First, Lisa Simpson had Writers Block and teamed up with Neil Gaiman. Then there was a Christmas episode set in the future. Last Sunday’s Simpsons was about Homer getting involved in Republican politics, featuring jokes about Chris Christie and the founding fathers. And next week, there will be a parody of my favorite movie of the last five years: the Social Network.
I don’t watch the show as religiously as I used to, but this has been a good string episodes. I’m worried that some of the references may be too vague and prone to be dated, though it is hilarious to have Chris Christie choking on fried chicken, and yelling “Save me Obamacare!”
I must say that I approve of God’s suggestion that I would be right at home on the writing staff of the Simpsons.
