Just a little kick in the bum: The Simpsons vs the Nations of the World

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Did you know that the British have bad teeth? That Australians worship dirt and use corporal punishment? That Japanese cartoons cause seizures, or that Indians work in convenience stores? While we’re offending people, did you know that Brazilians speak with strong spanish accents? That the Irish are violent drunks, and the French not only look like frogs but are also cowards? That Americans will nominate a water cooler for mayor? If you’ve spent any serious amount of time watching The Simpsons, you might know these things because they have all been portrayed in the show.
