The Simpsons Tackle Mad Cow Disease In Special Halloween Episode
Each year The Simpsons celebrate Halloween with an extra special spooktackular episode. This year, the long-running cartoon tackled the dangerous subject of mad cow disease. Here’s how it went down:
Everyone in Springfield was excited to try Krusty the Clown’s new “Burger Squared,” a burger made by “starting with Grade A beef, feeding it to other cows and then serving the unholy results on a seven grain bun.”
When Lisa hears about this, she says, “Cows eating cows? That’s an abomination!” And boy is she right. Turns out everybody in the town turns into to frothy-mouthed, human-eating zombies, and the only people that survive are the vegetarians and a few others who’ve made it to the safe zone.
Moral of this story: doing creepy ass things like feeding cows to other cows is NOT cool. Check out the video below to watch the clip.
