Since its start in December 1989, The Simpsons became a cultural phenomenon recognized worldwide. The characters are as popular as any global superstar and in many countries all around the world, you can find tons of products backed by the franchise. More than 600 episodes are spanned across 28 seasons, but Bart, Homer, Lisa, Marge and others are still the same – and we all love them like that. The microcosm of the small town of Springfield somewhere in the United States is not only the parody of the provincial lifestyle of a middle-class family but is pointing out many other problems and social phenomenon. Despite the fact that Homer Simpsons´ family is dysfunctional in nature, it members are warm-hearted and loving each other. The jokes targeting fictional characters as well as the variety of real life ones are sometimes quite visionary and several times, the jokes later appeared to be true. In the following list of the best Simpsons’ jokes that came true, you will find the most interesting of them.

It´s no secret that Homer likes to drink from time to time. He even had his own secret cocktail. He called it “laming Homer” and the most important ingredient was a cough medicine. When the episode was aired in November 1991, the bar owner in Prospect Heights, New York really started to prepare a cocktail made of Jagermeister, Bacardi and… a cough medicine.

This item of our Simpsons’ jokes that came true is not very funny. Once upon a time, Homer Simpson had an idea: to take 18 ounces of ounces of sizzling ground beef, add a creamery butter and improve it with a fried egg and a bacon ham. Homer called it „The Good Morning Burger“ and considered it a great breakfast. From that time, many fast food chains added something similar to their breakfast offer. They call it differently but doctors call it an express ticket to heart attack.

Sketches with Itchy and Scratchy are loved not only by Bart and Lisa, they are very popular among the majority of the Simpsons fans as well. In one of the episodes, there was an Itchy and Scratchy billboard which actually was spreading „blood“ all around. This is apparently one of the best Simpsons’ jokes as it inspired one TV Channel at New Zealand which used this idea to promote its premiere of the Kill Bill movie.
