“Art imitates life, but life imitates bad TV” (Woody Allen)

The mention for a major alumni award given by U.C. Berkeley is for excellence in achievement.

Meanwhile, in the episode “Brother, can you spare two dimes?”, Mr. Burns has to come up on the spot with the name for a fake awards, and he comes up with an award for outstanding achievement in the field of excellence.

  1. 😮 ❤ ⭐ lol! burns, a curmudgeon after my own heart. now if only the simpsons would tackle wealth inequality with his character, its perfect. (or maybe missed that episode, has anyone heard of it?)
    how about the show where the simpsons "predicted" trump president? did you notice that one?
    matt groenig is an artistic genius. my favorite is his old pre-simpsons book "life is hell" which includes "school is hell" etc….
