Cancer f**king sucks, you guys.

We're super saddened to hear that Sam Simon, one of three people who created The Simpsons, is fighting colon cancer. At 57, he's way too young to be going through this.

As a writer and producer on the show, he was told by doctors that he has colon cancer last year, and that it has spread. It's now attacking other vital organs, and the battle has gotten tougher. Here's how he explains it:

The Simpsons' Co-Creator Is Offering A $10K Reward For Info On Pit Bull Attack!

Filed under: Sad SadAttack!DogPit Bull

A poor little 2-year-old pit bull named Axel was recently ATTACKED in Bradenton, Florida, and now, dog lover and co-creator of The Simpsons Sam Simon is offering up a $10K reward to anyone with info on the horrible mishap.

The doggie was found with a 2-inch-deep slash across his head, which led to an immediate surgery. And even though the vet had to remove a piece of Axel's skull due to injury to his sinus cavity, the pup apparently NEVER showed that he was down.

Bob Barker And PETA Say 'Always Treat Animals On Set BETTER!'

Bob Barker and PETA have a bone to pick with American Humane.

The former game host has teamed up with Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon to urge American Humane to look out for animals on set a little bit better.

American Humane is the rating organization that supervises the use of animals on productions. When you see "no animals were harmed" credits in a flick, it's the AHA that supposedly take care of that.

However, whistleblowers have debunked AHA's ratings, calling them unreliable and not completely accurate:

Pinkberry Sold Simpsons Co-Creator Sam Simon Faulty Property?

Sam Simon Lawwsuit against Pinkberry

Wow, we may have to boycott Pinkberry after this news!

Sam Simon, co-creator of The Simpsons, is taking Pinkberry to court after he says they intentionally sold him a property he planned on using as a non-profit food bank that WASN'T permitted for food product operations!

After realtors SWORE it was permitted for such use, Simon purchased the building for $1.2 million because of amenities for his cause like the food prep area and walk-in freezer.

As it turned out, his new property was only licensed as an "auto repair garage", not food service. In fact, Pinkberry never even obtained proper plumbing, mechanical, and electrical permits!

In retaliation, Sam is suing all alleged guilty parties involved including his realtor, Pinkberry co-founder Shelly Hwang, AND the company through which Pinkberry does business.

It's such a shame Sam even has to go through all of this when he just wanted to improve the lives of the less fortunate!

UPDATE: A rep for Pinkberry reveals to FitPerez.com:

"Pinkberry has nothing to do with the entity that sold the building to Simon. Pinkberry is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit, and was not an owner or a tenant in the building when it was sold. Pinkberry was not involved in any of the negotiations or the sale of the building.

What is even more concerning is that the story focuses on an "anti-charity" angle, when the truth is that Pinkberry and its people are strong supporters of charities, including the very sort of food bank charity that Mr. Simon generously supports."
