I was amused to find the Wiggum For President site and then a little disappointed when I realized it was an official Fox project rather than something that had spawned spontaneously (spawntaneous?) from the melting pot of the insidious and unpredictable WWW.
Still, you gotta love the slogan “Hop On The Wiggum-Wagon”
My radio show co-host, Peter Hughes, surprised us with group rendering of the crew in Simpsons form and posted it to the show’s web site.
It’s scarily accurate.
Hey, Matt Groening! If you decide you want to use the crew of Technology Bytes in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons we’ve taken care of the hard part!
You can create your own Simpsons avatar at The Simsons Movie site.
Rich Davis and I pose for the obligatory tourist photo…
As you may have heard or read about, many 7-11’s around the country have been remodelled to look like The Kwik-E Mart from the animated television show The Simpsons.
As you could probably guess, this is part of a nationwide promotion for the upcoming Simpsons movie.
Sadly, the closest one to home is in Dallas. There is, however, one here in Seattle.
My old friend Rich who I haven’t seen in over 15 years suggested we swing by before our reunion dinner at the Seattle Space Needle.
Ok, I know I am a dork/nerd/geek but I don’t care. I was pretty excited to see this place.
Apu greeted us as we entered
Ok, he doesn’t LOOK like Apu, but I think he DOES sort of look like Hank Azaria who does the voice work for the Apu character. “Apu” was having the time of his life, getting photographed and declaring himself WORLD FAMOUS! Customers were coming in and taking his picture and offering money to buy his uniform. And yes, as we left he said “Thank you, come again!” We died laughing. It was like going to a rock concert featuring a band you love and hearing them play your favorite song as the encore.
The store was stocked to overflowing with many products you would expect to find at the local Kwik-E Mart.
Donuts with sprinkles
A Squishee machine!
And sundry items of various humor
I was tempted by many things, but settled on a single Buzz Cola and a Radioactive Man #1
