Simpsons Slog it Out with Bluto for Top News Stories

Simpsons News — Posted 26 Mar, 2003 by Scott

Uhm.. what is The Inquirer talking about?!

Gutterwatch US journalism watch.

SO LET'S GET THIS RIGHT -- and we're open to correction.
Disney owns one major US news channel and The Simpsons is owned by Fox Networks, another major news channel in the US.
Surely that means – and we're prepared to admit this is an oversimplification -- that Marge Simpson is hitting on Bluto and Goofy Disney – hardly imaginable to us out of towners. And Homer wouldn't like it either.
We think he wouldn't like Fox hitting on Donald Duck, either.
'Cos surely Marge, being the all American US lass she is would never ever ever countenance her family hitting on those cuddly quadrupeds that Disney brings to the world.
Or is this just reductio ad absurdum, as those Latin speaking folk would have it? We think we should be told.
