Thanks to everyone who reminded the me of this. Today is August 1st, 2010. Sound familiar?
Today is the day in "the future" where upon Lisa Simpson is supposed to marry Hugh St. John Alastair Parkfield, as foretold in 1995 by Episode 2F15. The nuptials were set to have occurred at 1:00pm this afternoon, and apparently would've worked out better had the wedding been held in church with God instead of outside in the cheap showiness of nature. (more after the break.)
Those who keep track of such things will of course note that we are now roughly 20 years away from Mrs. Simpson being elected as the first straight female president of the United States; approximately 2 years after which she (presumably) will, in a shocking act of nepotism, appoint her brother Bart to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. And yeah, right up until Episode GABF12, that really did all more-or-less fit together.
Note: To save valuable time in replying to "Simpsons"-related posts, you may wish to copy-paste the following response in the comments: "Because it doesn't air in the early-AM on Adult-Swim or Comedy Central, I haven't actually watched "The Simpsons" in over a decade. However, I would nevertheless like to declare that it sucks and has not been funny since whenever I stopped regularly watching it except for that one I saw that actually WAS funny but must have therefore been an anomally." Thank you ;)
