Fact of the Day: Barbara Bush vs The Simpsons

When The Simpsons made their rise to fame in the early 1990's, then-First Lady Barbara Bush commented publicly saying “It was the dumbest thing I had ever seen, but it’s a family thing, and I guess it’s clean.” on the matter. Show-writers responded by sending her a letter "written" by Marge Simpson. Barbara Bush responded back and apologized.

    1. Well it is hardly International news, Margaret - ha ha.
      I don't think it stopped or had ANY EFFECT on the viewing of the
      TV series - The Simpsons.
      Quite frankly I would have to be strapped to a chair to watch the bloody show and then with my eyes taped open.
      I think we are all permitted to have views that do not cause an International or National disaster.
      Mrs. Barbara Bush was a lovely refined lady.

  2. That's pretty interesting and kind of Mrs. Bush. Amazing that the Simpsons have been on so many years. I have collected a ton of Simpson memorabilia over the years, too. Hugs...

  6. Clean? Because that's all that matters, of course. Bush was clean, too, right?
