“Oops, I shoulda warned you, that clock gets incredibly hot if you leave it plugged in.” – Krusty Merchandise Executive


I really don’t think there’s a whole lot that needs to be said about this.  It was satirized by the show it’s based off of seventeen years before it even existed. 


To be fair, this one cannot burn you if you leave it plugged in as it cannot be plugged in, it can only run on four AA batteries.  Four!  And the only display appears to be a small (and from the looks of it non-backlit) digital LED.  This is strictly for the moron collector set.

. . . has become a grim reality in 2009.

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
