This 8-minute slide show of the newspaper headlines from the TV show the Simpsons is a must-see, even if you’ve never watched the show. Pay special attention to the details.
For instance, the primary newspaper for Springfield, the city where the Simpson family lives, is called the Springfield Shopper and its price jumps from FREE to 35 cents to 50 cents—a reflection, perhaps, of the fluctuating prices at the real newsstands.
Also, at the 1 minute 32 second mark there’s a shot of a classified page. Pause it and peruse the ads on this page, like “Flame thrower Viotnam Era, Orig. takes Reg. unleaded, FREE.” Yes, Vietnam is spelled incorrectly in the ad.
Enjoy! If you can't see it on this page, here's the link to College Humor, which assembed the slideshow.
