Everything We Needed to Learn in Life, We Learned from "The Simpsons"

Have you ever been watching "Jeopardy!" on a warm summer's night and gotten a correct answer to a subject you had no idea you knew anything about?


Well, we have. Several times. Alex Trebek would be impressed by how much we know about random nothings.

In fact, it happens a lot more than you'd think...

After a little bit of time, we realized that many of the random facts we know we had actually learned from (and you've probably already guessed it from the title): the fabulous, witty, and long-running show, "The Simpsons."

Here's where we come in.

My name is Lauren, and my husband and cohort-in-blog is Josh. We live in San Diego, and we love "The Simpsons." When it started, I was only 3, but Josh was 10. My, how time flies. This show has basically taught us everything we ever needed to know about life, love, the pursuit of happiness, and, well, beer. We love it so much, in fact, that we started devoting all of our spare time (and thanks to the terrible economy and unemployment rate, we have lots of it!) to compiling a comprehensive list about the life lessons and facts we learned from the show.

Since we think the questions writers from "Jeopardy!" may have the same philosophy as we do, we decided to put it in blog form, so others could enjoy and share any valuable (or invaluable, take your pick!) lessons, trivia, or facts we learned from this timeless show.

Let the fun begin!
