For more than two decades, people of the world have wondered many things…are we alone in the universe?  What is the meaning of life?  Where the hell is the Simpsons’ hometown of Springfield located?  Today, we have the answer to one of those questions…

Simpsons creator Matt Groening recently sat down with Smithsonian Magazine to talk about the long history of the show, from his humble beginnings to the first drawings to where Homer and company are now.  And one answer finally revealed the true location that many have sought after: 

“Springfield was named after Springfield, Oregon. The only reason is that when I was a kid, the TV show Father Knows Best” took place in the town of Springfield, and I was thrilled because I imagined that it was the town next to Portland, my hometown. When I grew up, I realized it was just a fictitious name. I also figured out that Springfield was one of the most common names for a city in the U.S. In anticipation of the success of the show, I thought, ‘This will be cool; everyone will think it’s their Springfield.’ And they do.”

So there you go…after all these years, we finally realize that our wonderful Springfield is supposed to mirror the Springfield closest to our hearts.

Poetic, no?  

Make sure you check out the rest of the Smithsonian’s article for all the “Simpsons” information you always wished you knew.  It’s one hell of a read.

Disney+ Series ‘Muppets Now’ Reveals Shocking Detail About The Swedish Chef

Bork, Bork, Bork?!

If you haven’t taken the time to check out the new Disney+ series Muppets Now, stop reading and start streaming! The improv sitcom is an unscripted, segmented series in which our favorite fur-covered friends put together a digital show. Think The Muppet Show meets millennials. I watched the first episode, which became available for streaming as of July 31st, and I smiled through the entire thirty minutes. It’s cute and campy and reminds us all why we love The Muppets so much. I was enjoying the childhood nostalgia of seeing Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang when suddenly our favorite gibberish-spewing chef came on the screen to partake in a cooking challenge. Of course I was prepared to giggle at the Swedish Chef’s horrendous attempt at cooking but I was immediately distracted and could only focus on one shocking detail!

Did you see it? Can you see what I was distracted by?! The stached Swede is wearing a wedding ring on his left hand! The Swedish Chef is married?!?!

I mean, sure, it’s not surprising with the sexy foreign accent and killer eyebrows but still, I would have never guessed the chef had someone waiting at home for him! Since the chef is one of the few Muppets to actually feature human hands, I first thought the ring might have belonged to a neglectful puppeteer who forgot to take off their ring. But I did a quick Wikipedia search and apparently the Swedish Chef has been donning the gold ring since 2010 and is known to be married!

I guess there truly is a lid for every pot.

Muppets Now is now available for streaming on Disney+.

‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Parodied Dolly Parton To Create A Theme Song For All The ‘Karen’s’ Out There

Published

These “Karens” are workin’ 9 to 5 on our last nerve.

By now you probably know that the term “Karen” is typically reserved for white women who throw tantrums over things that don’t really require tantrum throwing. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the “Karens” have been especially vocal about not wanting to wear a mask usually citing constitutional freedom as the reason. Over the passed few weeks we have seen headlines about these women coughing on pro-maskers, verbally assaulting eye witnesses and even destroying property all to prove the point that they can and will do whatever they want. It’s annoying. Well, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert took the these suburban lemons and turned them into a hilarious pitcher of lemonade with a parody of the Dolly Parton classic “Jolene,” appropriately renamed “Karen.”

The PSA begins with actual news footage covering the stories of anti-maskers before cutting to a vintage clip of Parton in a pink jumpsuit with an anonymous singer belting out the altered lyrics which poke fun at all the angry scene makers. “You go on rants at Trader Joe’s, sit on the ground at the Costco, say wearing masks is the devil’s law,” the unseen singer croons. “Karen, Karen, Karen, Karen, please just wear a mask you big dumbass” she continues to implore.

Like all good satire, the video is hilarious but also contains an important message. The CDC as well as countless medical professionals have all agreed that wearing a mask is the best way to prevent the spread of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Wear a mask! And check out the funny video below!

‘HQ Words’ Host Anna Roisman Wrote A ‘Porno’ When She Was 8 And It Is Hilarious

Published

There are illustrations and everything.

***NSFW-ish***

I never went to sleep-away camp but after seeing what Anna Roisman worked on one summer when she was 8 I kinda wish I did.

Comedian and HQ Words host Anna Roisman took to social media earlier to share the pornographic novel she and her best friend wrote at sleep away camp. The novel, which her mother preserved in bubble wrap, is entitled “The Funky D**k Baby” and serves as a hilarious look into the naive mind of an 8-year old. The adult-ish story centers on a man and a “women” who have anatomically incorrect intercourse which results in an even more anatomically incorrect pregnancy and birth.

The entire video is riddled with infectious giggles and ends with Roisman revealing that her father hates the book which just makes the entire thing even funnier. Fatherly disproval and an obscure plot line? Sounds like the makings of any good porn though, really.

Check out the hilarious video below!
