Local Gays Show Their Pride

Throughout its quarter-century-plus history, “The Simpsons” have featured tons of background jokes that have been the pillars of the show. Practically anyone can rattle off the numerous catchphrases that have become ingrained our culture, but it’s the subtler gags that have kept fans flocking to the show. Since its inception, “The Simpsons” have regularly made use of headline gags as a device to inject social commentary, historical references, and general silliness into the series, namely through the local newspaper, The Springfield Shopper. Of course, other publications such as The Daily Fourth GradianThe Flanders Press, and the niche magazine Glass Eater have made their way onto the show.
