No, we're NOT talking about The Simpsons!
In a HIGHlariously awesome coincidence, a British man named Barton "Bart" Simpson recently appeared in court, and as if the scenario was drawn up by Matt Groening himself, the judge's name was Recorder Burns!
That's right! It was a good old fashioned show down between Bart Simpson and Mr. Burns!
Apparently, the trouble maker in question pleaded not guilty for the charge of attempting to bring a prohibited firearm onto an airplane, which we can only assume was his trusty sling-shot!
The bizarre situation has certainly caught the attention of Simpsons fans, and we can all only hope that Bart took one for the team and told Mr. Burns to eat his shorts! LOLz!!
