Friday Funnies: Bart vs. Australia



Okay, I confess. This isn't actually a part of the iconic episode of The Simpsons Bart vs. Australia. In actual fact, it's some additional footage that was created in 1999 to act as part of a Simpsons themed attraction at Fox Studios in Sydney. But it's still funny. Even if Homer does blow the whole of Australia to bits and then laugh about it.

Bart vs. Australia is, of course, one of the most controversial episodes of The Simpsons to air to date. As an Australian, I've never quite known how to take it. It is as inaccurate and insulting as it is funny. Or maybe it is funny because it is so inaccurate and insulting.
