It has to have been 4 or 5 years since I’ve seen a recent Simpsons episode. After catching up on the last few episodes, I can really appreciate how “with it” the Simpsons have been. After all, it’s gotta be relevant if being parodied by the Simpsons. Particularly relevant is episode 21, where Bart’s teacher is replaced with a younger, hipper instructor.
Bart: “Then Zack skyped us, live blogged our spelling bee, and friended us on facebook!”
