Admit it: The Simpsons is the best sitcom ever made

May 19, 2008 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: blogs.guardian.co.uk

You can keep Seinfeld and Friends and stick Only Fools and Horses - no-one comes close to matching the mirth of Marge et al. What's their secret?

It was while watching The Simpsons last night that I decided that definitely, absolutely, without a doubt that it is the greatest sitcom ever made. I've said as much before but it's worth saying again just to see what y'all think and to see if you think there are any other sitcoms that come close to matching the mirth of Marge et al. (Back in 2003, Radio Times named Bilko as the best sitcom but really, let's behave ourselves, shall we?)

It's one of the greatest, that's for sure. But I guess as to the number one greatest ever... that's a bit more subjective. To give you an example, my top favorite sitcom is Perfect Strangers.

Southpark and The Simpsons showed that some Americans do have a sense of humour.
Very little else they have produced even comes close to European humour.

I've laughed a total of 15-20 times watching the Simpsons over the past decade, and this used to be my favorite show in the early years...time to put this old dog to sleep.

If the simpsons were a woman, i'd ask it out on a date. I'd take it to the nicest restaraunt. I'd let it order what ever it wanted. I'd flirt with it, compliment it, rub it's thighs under the table, maybe play footsie. Then I'd put butter all over my junk, I'd lower my hips and slide off the chair and try to stab it with my purple man juice maker. I would do this non stop until the show said "check please". Then I'd take it home, I'd rub baking soda into its lips, cleaning the area before I make it mine. I'd pressure it for anal, then I'd brush between the cheeks with an electric toothbrush. I'd tell it funny tales to put it at ease, if that didn't work I'd roofie it. I'd fill it with my seed until twins grew from it's womb. I'd raise the children as my own, because who knows they might be.

Remember when the Simpsons and Married with Children were back-to-back? I was religious about those two shows back in the late '80s, early '90s.

Put Fox comedy on the map. The Fox News came out. Get a lot of laughs there too!
