The Videogum Why Don’t YOU Caption It? Contest: The Real Simpsons

You have to admit, as far as fan art goes, this is pretty great fan art. That’s what they would look like! (One could get into the sort of mind-melty problematics of how even the “real” Simpsons are still just a drawing, which makes them very much not “real” at all but just different “fake” Simpsons, but let’s not. We all get what’s happening here.) I go through a pretty similar thought process sometimes when I’m watching a movie about, like, Jennifer Aniston as a waitress in a strip mall, or something. I try and figure out what that person would actually look and act like. SPOILER ALERT: it’s not Jennifer Aniston that is for sure! Her hair is overdyed and her fingernails are slightly yellow from her lifelong cigarette addiction and her sweatshirt doesn’t fit her very well because it’s not secretly from an expensive store and hasn’t been painstakingly tailored by a professional costume designer. Also: she hates her job and her life in a way that reads throughout her entire body with such intensity that it literally cannot be faked no matter how much your dad is also involved in showbusiness. Anyway, I’m not really sure how you’re even supposed to caption this. I just wanted to share it. But how you caption it isn’t and has never been my problem. So, good luck.

The winner will receive special placement in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. Best. Monsters’ Ball. Ugher. (Via TheHighDefinite.)
