This screen-grab is from The Simpsons episode Adventures in Baby-Getting.
While fumbling in her glove compartment, Marge reveals a portable Zombie Virus Kit! Who knew Marge was an Apocalypse Prepper? This episode aired on November 4, 2012.
Fast forward to this week, and airing on The Simpsons was the episode Homer Goes to Prep School, which aired on January 6, 2013. In this episode, Homer gets involved with The Springfield Preppers, an extreme survivalist group led by Guest Star, Tom Waits.
Homer Goes to Prep School was written by Brian Kelley, whose name I don’t recognize, but I eagerly await his next script. With The Simpsons addressing a possible future apocalypse — whether it be zombie or not — I’m excited to see how our favorite family of Springfield adjusts to the future turmoil.
– “Deep down, we’re all savage apes!”
– “Wow! Your end of the world is better than my during the world.”
– “This is gonna be a long apocalypse.”
– “Marge, when I started prepping for the end of the world, EVERYONE laughed at me.”
– “I guess despite all our so-called civilization, anarchy lurks around every corner like a racially diverse street gang on a network cop show.”
