Things We Ignore
In The Simpsons
Homer’s treatment of Bart has been nothing short of abusive since the very first episode of “The Simpsons” premiered. He's been violently strangling his son over trivial things for years, yet fans are completely unbothered by it.
Child Abuse
Homer’s been working at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant for years, but he’s probably the worst employee in the business. He lacks the responsibility required for the job and constantly puts his town and his coworkers at risk, so it’s a miracle he hasn’t been fired yet.
Homer’s Job
Mr. Burns’ shifting age is one the most popular bits in “The Simpsons,” but it can get a little confusing at times. When asked how old he is, Mr. Burns’ will often vary his answer by decades, which is odd in a show where everyone else seems to stay the same age.
Mr. Burns’ Age
Homer has a habit of disrespecting Marge and going against her wishes, like when he marries another woman while vacationing in Vegas. Marge would probably be better off if she divorced Homer and found someone that's a better father and a better husband.
Marge’s Marriage
Homer’s brain is like a talking ghost that only Homer sees, popping in occasionally to converse with him in awkward situations. Instead of functioning as a single unit, the two work separately, which is highly abnormal and a little concerning at times.
