Today in Things I Thought Already Happened

“Watch out, Laszlo Panaflex!” – Troy McClure

Matt Groening is getting a tile on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  I found this out via a press release we got this afternoon, but if you’d asked me this morning whether or not he already had one, I would’ve said “Probably?”.  Here are the official details:

MATT GROENING CELEBRATES 500TH EPISODE OF “THE SIMPSONS” WITH
STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME

WHO:      Matt Groening 
                  Emcee: Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, President/CEO Leron Gubler 
                  Guest speakers:  Hank Azaria (voice of Moe, Chief Wiggum, plus others) 
                  and Yeardley Smith (voice of Lisa Simpson). 

WHAT:    2,459th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Category of
                  TELEVISION

WHERE: 7021 Hollywood Boulevard at the corner of Sycamore near The
                  Simpson’s star

WHEN:   Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at 11:30 a.m.

“The Simpson’s star”?  Does no one at hip, edgy Web 2.0 marketing firms proofread anymore?  The rest of the press release contains more indirect comedy, like the mini-biography that uses the registered trademark symbol four times in five sentences, just in case you forgot that “Life In Hell®” after the first one.  More amusing still is this bit from the legalese at the end:

The information in this email and any attached files is confidential. It is intended solely for the use of the addressee. Any unauthorized disclosure or use is prohibited.

It’s a fucking press release!  The whole point of sending it to me is to get me to disclose its contents, but apparently that’s prohibited.  Oops. 

Anyway, good for Groening.  And if anyone goes to the ceremony, do me a favor and count how many times they make “what an honor to have people’s shoes all over my name” type jokes.

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.
