Sunday night is a big night for Americans, for the last 24 straight years The Simpsons has been entertaining audiences of varied ethnic makeup and even more varied intelligence levels. Academic researchers and couch potatoes around the world agree that The Simpsons is an adequate barometer of the American culture with all its goods and its bads. Could any of you, my readers, have imagined that Bitcoin would be mentioned on The Simpsons of all shows? After all these years, Bitcoin is finally enough of a mainstay in the culture to be made fun of on The Simpsons.
My bet’s on an angsty script writer that himself/herself lost some money on the Bitcoin markets in the last few days. A bit of advice to Krusty: You don’t actually lose anything unless you panic sell.
Enjoy the clip and have a cryptic day, mis amigos!
Lisa Simpson: “Krusty, are you broke?”
Krusty the Klown: “Yeaaaah, all it takes is some bad luck at the ponies, worse luck in the Bitcoin markets, and heavy investments in a high-end book mark company.”
