A recent story by the Washington Post reports on how toys are literally locked to the packaging they come in. In the story they say "It took us nearly 10 minutes to remove the Dot Pal figure from its packaging thanks to about a half-dozen twist ties and lots of clear tape". We here at Simpson Crazy recommend that you just leave the toys in the box or better yet, just give them to us if you're having problems with them, hehe.

The Bradford Exchange, a company best known for its collector plates, is taking orders for a set of three ornaments inspired by the first Christmas episode of "The Simpsons." Further sets could follow every other month, the company says. However, in a letter to customers dated Dec. 14, Bradford apologized that its first set of Simpsons holiday oranments have been delayed and probably won't arrive for another "3-6 weeks," which puts delivery well after Christmas. The company blames the September terrorist attacks for delaying shipments to its distribution centers, "which in turn means we have been delayed in getting products to you."

Hey party people, recently my friend's show had a Simpsons Geek! Ok, well if you're wondering what I am talking about, I'm talking about Beat the Geeks, a new show on Comedy Central. One of the most recent geeks on the show was a Simpsons geek and yes, he did defend his championship.

I don't know why but for some reason I found this very funny and informative at the same time. Maybe it's because here in the US we really don't give a rating toward... well... crackers. Maybe it's not such a bad idea. Well anyways, the Simpsons crackers get a 4/5 which is pretty darn good for a cracker if you ask us.
