Matt Groening – who sued President Obama in 2009 for plagiary, who accused Mitt Romney of polygamy, whose “Simpsons” show routinely makes fun of republicans and christians – has become sophmoric entertainment, like farting in public or picking your nose, to appeal to the basis and least mature audience possible. And he has succeeded.
“The Simpsons” used to be funny, but now it is just crass. The show reminds one of an embittered, stale old woman who cares more about her 17 cats than people. That’s progressives for you.
Matt Groening, Creator of The Simpsons
The following is a very brief bio of Mr. Burns, cited from Wikipedia,
“As the primary antagonist, Mr. Burns spends his time in his office at the nuclear plant, monitoring his workers via closed-circuit cameras. At a young age, Burns left his family to live with a twisted and heartless billionaire who owned an atom mill in Shelbyville. He lived a life of privilege and would amuse himself by injuring immigrant laborers.
“Burns resides in a vast, ornate mansion on an immense estate called Burns Manor. It is protected by a high wall, an electrified fence, and a pack of vicious attack dogs known as “The Hounds”. Burns routinely subjects Springfield and its residents to his abuse and there is a general dislike of him throughout the town.
“Burns’ extreme old age is a frequent source of humor on the show. He is occasionally referred to as “Springfield’s oldest resident”
“Burns’ state of mind is the subject of frequent jokes on the show. At times, he appears to be completely removed from reality and modern conventions.
“Burns is physically weak, and often shown to have little more strength than an infant.
“The show’s creator Matt Groening principally based Burns on his high school teacher Mr. Bailey. Drawing further inspiration from oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, David Rockefeller and fictional character Henry Potter from It’s a Wonderful Life, Groening made Burns the “embodiment of corporate greed”. Animator David Silverman parodied Burns’s appearance on Fox founder Barry Diller, and modeled his body on a praying mantis.”
