It’s official. Add deranged Simpson fans to the crowd of Muslims and far-lefties who hate me, but can’t spell or use proper grammar to save their lives. Yet, these gutter-dwellers think up every possible disgusting image they can conjure up in writing.
Check out this one, I received over the weekend, in which the writer goes insane over my “The Simpsons Movie” review. From the lexicon (if you can call it that, and that’s a generous use of the word) of this e-mail, it’s clear Deranged Simpsons Syndrome is not mutually exclusive from Deranged Leftwinger Syndrome:

Subject: Simpsons Comment – Let mofos comment on this.
When you start writing something that I can even take a chuckle at other than your over the top banter with no message than your obvious bigotry than you can comment on the film de noir that the Simpsons is.
Also, jizzwhore, the Simpsons was the #5 movie opening day this year with a consderable budget of $75 million. So learn some shit, fall in line, and stop criticing The Simpsons.

Dearest Cultured Renaissance Man, AJ:
You call yourself a “mofo.” Well, no-one can argue truth in advertising with you. As for the rest, to quote Bart Simpson: Don’t have a cow, man. Get a clue: It’s only a movie review. Repeat after yourself: It’s only a movie review. . . of an animated cartoon. Gee whiz. Life needed.
And FYI, if I judged movies based on how much they spent to make them, “Waterworld” would be one of the greatest movies ever. As for “The Simpson Movie’s” success at the box office, given the hype it received, that was predictable. But, hey, there’s no accounting for good taste–or arbiting what makes a great Simpsons episode versus a below average one–in America. If we judged how great a movie was based on its success, then every Adam Sandler movie is a cinematic masterpiece. “Waterboy,” anyone?
Oh, and FYI, it’s “film noir,” NOT “film de noir” (which, BTW, “The Simpsons Movie” ain’t, by any stretch of the imagination). Get some French lessons, tout de suite (that means right away, dude).
Of all the things to get worked up about . . . .
