The Simpsons is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family called the Simpsons (surprise surprise). Homer is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father, Marge is the hardworking homemaker wife, Bart is the ten year old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight year old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant.

Springfield's Zip code is 80085. In the episode The Simpsons: Moe Letter Blues, Moe states that he moved to Springfield because the Zip Code spells the word "BOOBS". The US Postal Service website reports that there is no Zip Code 80085. However, the reverse (58008) which would spell "BOOBS" if turned upside down, happens to be the Zip Code of the tiny town of Barney, North Dakota. If the Zip code 80085 did exist, it would be located somewhere in the state of Colorado. All the actual Zip codes from 80001 through 80049 are in Colorado with Zips 80050-80099 are not in use.

The Simpsons is a show that has sustained ten years of constant humor. The stories have gradually become better and the second fiddle characters were getting more screen time which translates into a much more realized show. The pop culture references abound and delight those who can pick them out. My personal favorite is the Citizen Kane references in the episode called "Rosebud." Plus, anything with C. Montgomery Burns is hysterical. The guest stars aren't there as a "special appearance" touted by the networks. They actually work into the storyline, and that makes it all the more enjoyable. Where else can you see The Moody Blues acting like thugs in a Vegas casino?
