I have a friend who dismisses The Simpsons and refuses to watch it because he says “It’s a cartoon…”.
But he watches a ton of reality TV bullshit, so who knows what’s going on in his head…
I’ve tried to explain to him over and over again that The Simpsons is funny (of course), but that it’s also very clever and the show sometimes says a lot about current events and even politics in a very subtle way.
One of the best ways they do this is with the many signs you can see around Springfield during different episodes.
Here are 14 hilarious and clever signs that you might have missed on The Simpsons.
1. Non-stop sprawl.
There’s no stopping it now.
2. Looks like a classy place!
Any motel you can rent by the hour is always pretty nice.
3. And pay and pay and pay.
Does this look like your city?
4. Homer is getting REALLY big in this episode.
He’s always expanding outward.
5. Poor Grampa Simpson…
These places are just depressing in general.
6. Now, THIS is accurate.
There’s no escape!
7. I hope they get all of it…
But just in case…
8. I’m freakin’ out, man!
We can help you with that!
9. Krusty’s back at it again.
Springfield’s most beloved celebrity!
10. Remember this song?
I’d probably hire them…
11. Can’t discriminate by law.
Which I’m sure makes some property owners not very happy.
12. Memorialized with a fake tree.
Just keep choppin’ ’em down…
13. Ewwwwww. Gross.
But a brilliant sign, nonetheless.
14. Make up your own mind on this one.
And remember to VOTE.
What a great show. I hope it never goes off the air!
