The Simpsons is possibly one of the most popular animated TV shows of the past 2 decades, with 29 seasons and over 600 episodes. So it’s not surprising that millions of people all around the globe treat Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and lil’ Maggie, as if they were a part of their family. And throughout all these years the show’s writers were always on point, shedding some satirical light on gender, racial, political, and a whole slew of other issues, that have no place on TV. From time to time the same writers somehow even managed to predict the future, and that’s what this list is about. I predict you’ll say “Simpsons did it first” by the end of the article. Let me know if I were right.
1. President Donald Trump
About 10 years ago, when people used to make fun of Trump just for his looks and his giant ego, there was this “Simpsons” episode, in which Bart travels to the future, where Lisa becomes the president of the US… after Donald Trump. Funny joke has recently became a nightmare.
2. Economic Crisis in Greece
About 5 years ago there was an episode, where Homer was on TV. The news ticker at the bottom of the screen said “Europe puts Greece on eBay”. 3 years later – BOOM! Greece is an economic dumpster fire.
3. Lady GaGa at the Superbowl
In one of the episode Lady GaGa was shown suspended from a dome, and wouldn’t ya know at the 2017 Superbowl she was actually tethered to the freaking dome!
