Eat My Shorts, America! The Simpsons Dish Up a 2024 Election You Won’t Un-Donut


Forget Nostradamus and his riddles, forget those creepy psychics in infomercials. The real oracle of future events isn’t some dusty book or glowing forehead – it’s Springfield, USA. That’s right, folks, The Simpsons are back, and this time, they’re serving up a 2024 election hotter than Krusty’s deep-fried mystery meat.

Get ready for a campaign trail wilder than Bart on a sugar rush, with contenders weirder than Krusty’s clown makeup collection:

  • President Lisa Simpson: Still rocking her sax and eco-warrior swag, Lisa’s second term has been, well, a Springfield special. Pollution’s down, but Sideshow Bob keeps hacking the voting machines (turns out his rake isn’t just for leaves anymore).
  • Mayor Quimby (no bribes, surprisingly): With Bart as his surprisingly savvy campaign manager, Quimby’s promising a Springfield where donuts rain from the sky (funding may come from Mr. Burns’ bottomless vault of ill-gotten gains).
  • Kang and Kodos, the two-headed alien overlords: They’re back, baby! Spouting a populist platform of “Make Earth Inferior Again,” these intergalactic demagogues are polling surprisingly high among disgruntled space-slug enthusiasts.
  • Milhouse Van Houten: Buoyed by a wave of sympathy after Bart accidentally launched him into orbit (again), Milhouse is running on a platform of “Free pizza in every school lunch!” His Secret Service detail? Nelson Muntz and his goons. You can practically hear the wedgies already.

The campaign promises are wilder than Homer’s burps after Taco Tuesday: Quimby vows to install a monorail that actually works (shocking, we know), Lisa pledges to build a giant hamster wheel to power the city (powered by Ralph Wiggum, naturally), and Kang and Kodos promise to turn Earth into a giant tentacle theme park (with mandatory tentacle tickles, ew).

The debates are pure Springfield gold: Lisa unleashes scathing scientific facts while Quimby dodges questions like a greased-up hog. Bart heckles everyone on Twitter (of course), and Milhouse faints whenever Nelson cracks his knuckles. Kang and Kodos, meanwhile, spew threats in their booming, telepathic voices, occasionally interrupting to devour campaign balloons.

It’s a political circus that would make Krusty the Clown blush, and who knows who’ll ultimately wear the presidential tiara? Will Lisa’s smarts overcome Quimby’s charm? Will Milhouse’s pizza pledge win the hearts (and stomachs) of Springfield? Or will Kang and Kodos enslave us all with their slimy charm and intergalactic laser guns?

One thing’s for sure: it’s gonna be a ride wilder than Bart on a skateboard made of broken dreams. So grab your Duff, settle in for the ultimate election night showdown, and remember, folks, in Springfield, the only guarantee is that, no matter who wins, Homer will eat all the donuts. D’oh!
