simpsons co creator cancer health sam simon sad scary battle

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:

Seth MacFarlane is hosting the Oscars — you know that already!

Plus, you know that he created and runs Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show. That's basically 3/4 of Fox's "Animation Domination" lineup!

Now if there was only a way to get that last 1/4… OH WAIT! The Simpson's short called The Longest Daycare (starring Maggie Simpson, of course!) is up for an Oscar!

Needless to say, Maggie needs the perfect gown for the occasion, so we're happy to show you guys the sneak peek of her three different looks (below)!

Fans can vote on Facebook for their favorite look, with the winner to be announced on Friday!

So fab! So glamorous! Go Maggie!!

Oh, and good luck to you too, Seth! Ha!

Homer Simpson Is Voting For THIS U.S. Presidential Nominee…

Filed under: TV NewsPolitik

The Simpsons have literally covered every noteworthy pop culture story from the past twenty years at least two times over.

Which is why it makes so much sense to get their take on the Presidential battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney happening right now.

Here, we see Homer Simpson try and decide whom to vote for. He has pros and cons with regards to both candidates, so he decides to just follow his gut.

Unfortunately, he must've had a bad breakfast, ha!

Ay, Carumba! Simpsons Stamps Cost USPS $1.2 Million

Filed under: TV NewsOops!Business Blitz

D’oh!

The United States Postal Service took a huge gamble when they manufactured ONE BILLION special Simpsons stamps.

They were trying to mimic the success they had back in the 90's when they did the same thing, but with Elvis Presley's image.

Surprisingly, the stamps were a huge success! Oh, wait…

…Sorry we forgot to add a word. The stamps were NOT a huge success. In fact - they were basically a total failure as they only sold 318 million of 'em.

Here's what one report said:

"We found the Postal Service overproduced 2 billion commemorative and special issue stamps during calendar years 2009 and 2010, resulting in…unnecessary manufacturing costs for stamps that were later destroyed."

Listen, we love the Simpsons as much as anyone, but we're not going to go out our way to buy their stamps.

Get a grip, dude.
