I Think Of “The Simpsons” Every Time I See Something About The Arsenic Wine

Everything makes me think of The Simpsons. Have you been seeing those articles talking about the lawsuit over arsenic levels in wines? I don’t know if they’re true or not, and I don’t drink anymore anyway, so I’m not too concerned. However, I do think of The Simpsons each and every time I see one.

Don’t you remember “The Crepes of Wrath” episode? That’s the one where Bart goes to France as an exchange student, only to be paired with low budget winemakers who plan to use him as a slave and put anti-freeze in their wine.

Now, arsenic and anti-freeze are completely different things and are in the respective wines for completely different reasons, but can’t you see how my brain might determine there’s a link? I see it…do you see it?

The universe is always making Simpsons references.

I don’t recommend it but we’re still alive all these years later. 🙂

    • I broke open a mercury thermometer once and kept the mercury in a butter dish, opening it once in a while so I could watch it roll around. If I suffered any ill effects, I’m not aware of them. Maybe I just got lucky.
