Twenty Quotes from The Simpsons That Prove This Show is THE GREATEST

I’m going to cheat with this post, because instead of writing something of my own, I’m going to make a list of quotes from The Simpsons. #SorryNotSorry. I love The Simpsons, and in its early golden years, I’m not sure there’s ever been a better written show on television. In its best moments, The Simpsons is clever, smart, self aware, and satirical. To prove that, here are some quotes from The Simpsons that I always find myself thinking about/quoting/generally obsessing over.

PS: I’m feeling so lazy today that I’m not even going to post blurbs with these quotes. I’m only posting quotes. LOL. To be fair, it did take a while to nail down these quotes, but yeah, still pretty lazy stuff. I can’t be tamed. I promise to actually write something tomorrow. Maybe. If I’m feeling up for it. We’ll see.

This still counts though!
