The Simpsons Deemed Inappropriate

Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie were deemed too “inappropriate” for Venezuelan children, and the popular cartoon The Simpsons has been dropped from the Caracas TV station Televen, BBC News reports. In a bit of unintentional comedy that’s too funny to make up, the show has been replaced by reruns of the 1990’s drama Baywatch. Maybe the cartoon could have been saved if the creators had included more shots of Marge in a bikini running in slow motion.
