Real Life can be much more interesting than fiction. With over 500 episodes, The Simpsons have used a lot of ideas. So many reality is starting to copy them...
The features of Homer's hideous car design come to be...
21 February 1991: The Simpson's episode "Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?" first aired. It featured Homer designing a car for the everyman, which ended up bankrupting his haf-brother.
2014: A Wired article suggests that the car was ahead of its time, saying that many of the features now exist, including:
- Multiple horns.
- Huge engine.
- Gigantic cup holders.
- Soundproof interiors.
- Shag carpet (Rolls Royce only.)
It stretches the point on some things and the most important features: the individual bubbles and the giant spoiler aren't on there.
So what do people think? Does this pass or fail as life copying The Simpsons?
