Frinkiac, the delightful timewaster that lets Simpsons fans search for their favorite quote and instantly find the matching screencap, just got even better: now it lets you create gifs, too. The world’s productivity just took a serious hit.

Will the return of virtual reality be as big a flop as the return of 3D movies and TV was?

Everything from exotic super cars, to blue collar pickup trucks, to even the Goodyear blimp has gotten the Hot Wheels treatment. And now, after over a quarter century on TV, so has the nondescript pink sedan that the Simpson family drives all over Springfield.
The Simpsons has never been afraid to travel into the future to see what’s in store for Springfield’s favorite family. They’re taking that a step further next week, premiering the 75th anniversary special during the premiere of Minority Report.
Every year at San Diego Comic-Con, I make a point to head to the Acme Archives booth. Then again, it’s hard to miss considering it’s 5 times the size of every other booth and filled with beautiful art. This year is no exception and three pieces in particular jumped out: the ladies of Indiana Jones.
It takes a lot of hard work, a considerable amount of natural talent and a little bit of luck to be able to eat like Homer Simpson in real life.

Protests aren't always symbolic. Sometimes they bring about real change ... like the recent outcry in Bolivia over network Unitel's decision to change the time slot for its daily Simpsons broadcast.

Here's one way to make you nostalgically love The Simpsons even more: add more nostalgia by recreating the entire opening sequence in pixel animation.

Elon Musk – CEO of SpaceX and Tesla and the real-world inspiration for Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal of Iron Man – will guest star as Homer's cubicle-mate on tonight's episode of The Simpsons.

Though parodying Frozen doesn't exactly pack the same punch as it would have, I don't know, months and months ago, it's still makes me giggle to see Homer as a snowman. The other bits of 'The Couch Gag Before Christmas' is basically the same run as last year's. But who wouldn't want a candy cane bong?
