Some of you may recall the Whacking Day episode of The Simpsons, in which residents of the town of Springfield whack snakes with sticks. It’s a tradition. Turns out there is a real-life version of Whacking Day called Rattlesnake Roundup.
Here’s a link to the script of The Simpsons’ episode at snpp.com. The TV Guide synopsis, also via that site: “The soulful sound of Barry White and a key discovery by Bart—who was expelled from school—help Lisa in her efforts to save Springfield’s snakes from the annual Whacking Day.”
It happens to be an awesome episode, in no small part due to the presence of Mr. Barry White. The fact that there is an actual event that is even remotely similar to what was on The Simpsons is awful. Wendy Townsend, writing for CNN.com, agrees.
Again, in case you missed it the first time:
Oh. So. Creepy.
