Happy 20th Birthday – D’oh !

Well it is hard to believe it has been twenty years and The Simpsons is currently the longest running prime time entertainment program (just recently passing Gunsmoke) with a consistent setting and recurring characters. While other prime time shows have run longer they are all news and other types of variety programs.

I thought it would only be appropriate to have a video clip where Homer is trying to cast his ballot for president back in 2008 for Bob’s favorite candidate. Note the Ohio reference. The shows humor revolves around a wide spectrum of American society so it appeals to all generations. For example, early Simpson episodes would almost always include a prank call from Bart to Moe’s Tavern which would piss Moe off, similar to what we did as kids.

I hope it’s around for another twenty years.
