Sunday’s Simpsons episode was another eminently unfunny installment in the years long death rattle the show has been publicly undergoing, one that will endure for at least another two years. But it did have one good football related visual gag, when Channel 4 ran a doctored picture of Flanders in a hatchet story about him booting the Simpsons out of their home after he bought in on the cheap in an auction.
Don’t take the ribbing too hard Lions fans. Remember when the show ripped on the Broncos in the Hank Scorpio episode and the team proceeded to win the next two Super Bowls? Well, that won’t happen to you, but it’s a nice thought, huh?
