From the archives: Marge Simpson writes Barbara Bush

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

In 1990 (during The Simpsons' second season) first lady Barbara Bush gave an interview for People magazine, saying, among others that the show "was the dumbest thing [she] had ever seen."

Apparently, Marge Simpson took it a little personally, because she wrote her the following letter as a response:

To which Barbara Bush wrote back:
Dear Marge,

How kind of you to write. I'm glad you spoke your mind; I foolishly didn't know you had one.

I am looking at a picture of you, depicted on a plastic cup, with your blue hair filled with pink birds peeking out all over. Evidently, you and your charming family — Lisa, Homer, Bart and Maggie — are camping out. It is a nice family scene. Clearly you are setting a good example for the rest of the country.

Please forgive a loose tongue.


Barbara Bush

P.S. Homer looks like a handsome fella!
