The Simpsons are famous for their opening couch gags. They’re usually cute and witty! Not in a post-election 2016 world. In this week’s episode, the AV Club reports that the entire family is killed except for Bart. Well, that certainly puts a period at the end of the sentence.
Homer chokes on that pesky uranium rod, Lisa’s head gets bashed in by her saxophone, and Maggie drives herself and Marge off a cliff.
Yes, that was Lisa Simpson with “her head bashed in.” That’s heartwarming. I know it’s a tough time but let’s not give into despair. Let’s light a candle rather than have Marge do the deadman’s float, Matt Groening.
