03/20/2005: A vast conspiracy? Where's the outrage?
In a recent commentary on the website Online Journal, commentator Isaac Peterson clues us in on what may be one of the most insidious, deadly conspiracies preying on the entertainment world in quite some time: The Simpsons' Body Count:
A spinoff of the Tracey Ullman Show, the Simpson family's first episode aired in late 1989 and is still going strong, approaching its 400th episode. It was not long before the Simpsons replaced the Bundys as America's favorite dysfunctional family.Follow the link to read the horrifying record of carnage....
The iconoclastic show has become noted for, among other things, the participation of big name guest stars who often appear as themselves. One little noted grisly fact about this wildly popular television program, however, is that its guest stars have developed a nasty habit of waking up dead after they appear.
Below is a list of celebrities who had the misfortune of running afoul of the Simpson gang.
The list is incomplete, however; celebrities are continuing to meet their maker on a regular basis, while the Simpsons have managed to rack up a body count that would be the envy of the Soprano crime family. And yet the dark side of the Simpson family, friends, and associates remains mostly unexamined.
There are many websites featuring the deaths that have supposedly followed in the wake of Bill Clinton, such as this one: Why is there no similar site that exposes the deeds of the Simpson family?
How many deaths will it take for the notorious Simpson clan to be brought to justice? How long will the Simpsons' bloody rampage be allowed to run unchecked? What deadly secrets lurk behind the laughter?
