"The Simpsons" 7.5.2009
The Simpsons is an animated sitcom about the antics of a dysfunctional family called the Simpsons (surprise surprise) a very politically incorrect family. Homer works with pride in a nuclear power plant run with more regard for profit than safety He is the oafish unhealthy beer loving father. His wife is Marge, a kind of supermom a hardworking homemaker wife. They have three kids: Bart is the ten year old underachiever (and proud of it), Lisa is the unappreciated eight year old genius, and Maggie is the cute, pacifier loving silent infant.
The Simpsons is the ultimate (if very unorthodox) nuclear family. Homer, the lovable dufus father, stumbles apathetic ally through his family life and work at the local nuclear power plant. Marge, the overbearing but responsible mother, Bart, the 4th grade underachiever and nemesis to Springfield elementary's principal, Lisa, the brainy and responsible 8 year old, and Maggie, the oft-forgotten baby, round out the family. Based on a series of small cartoon sketches from the Tracy Ullman show, the Simpsons enjoy many wacky exploits in their hometown and beyond. Other characters include an incompetent lawyer, the tyrranical nuclear power plant owner, the too-perfect neighbors (the Flanders) of the Simpsons, and the less than perfect "Klown", Krusty. Colorful characters and situations abound.
The set of first day covers themselves show them crowding each other. The fact that there are two different post marks on the same day and from the same city appears strange, but very attractive indeed. Any explanations anyone …… firstname.lastname@example.org
