The abstract nature of cartoons means you can take some liberties with such trifling concepts as colour and anatomy when drawing characters. Unfortunately, bringing said characters out of the abstract and into reality often ends with… well, why don’t I let this terrifying 3D version of Homer Simpson explain?
At this point, it shouldn’t be at all surprising that The Simpsons managed to accurately predict a wild bit of IRL news that none of us ever saw coming, but yes: The Simpsons totally called Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
Just when you think 2017 couldn’t get weirder, two countries get into a spat on Twitter and use a Simpsons GIF to accuse the other of aggression. Seriously.
