Homeschooler Discovers The Simpsons

Lark News is always a classic stop in my browser around the first of the month. This month they’ve got great parody humor, including this one about a homeschooler finding The Simpsons in college. Funny …

Andrew Griffin’s grades have sagged this semester. He blames Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie.

Until he entered college, Griffin barely knew The Simpsons existed. He was homeschooled in rural Idaho and had a VCR but no television stations. Now “I’ve got a lot of catching up to do,” he says. Griffin was vaguely aware of the yellow cartoon family but thought they were “generalized symbols of cultural decadence.”

He believed the popular Bart Simpson “Don’t have a cow, man” t-shirt was a pro-vegetarian slogan. He thought Homer Simpson was the Home Depot mascot. But Griffin is now “hooked” after discovering his roommate’s collection of Seasons 1 through 12 on DVD.
