News That's Not About O.J. or Nicole Brown

 - Oct 4, 2008
Today’s news may be all about O.J. Simpson and his deceased ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, but everyone knows that there’s a prime-time network cartoon family that shares the same name, minus all the drama--The Simpsons.

The Simpsons put the ‘fun’ in dysfunctional, and have inspired a fan following so devout as to help this network cartoon transcend television into fine art, the silver screen and even popular Apple-branded products. O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson could only hope for such positive press.

These 16 articles celebrate the best of the Simpsons cartoon show, whether it’s watching Homer vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin six times in a row on network television, creating your own Simpsons avatar on the Simpsons website, buying authentic Duff brand beer, or checking out superheroes that have been given the special Simpsons touch--and we’re not talking about O.J. Simpson’s five-fingered touch or even Nicole Brown Simpson’s nonexistent one (may she rest in peace).

So take a break from following coverage on the O.J. Simpson trial and reading up on the tragic life of Nicole Brown Simpson and check out the antics of the other Simpsons--the family behind the longest-running cartoon show in the United States.
