    I was watching the eighth season Simpsons DVDs today and on the fifth episode titled "Bart After Dark," I saw some thing that looked strangely familiar. This is the intercom on the gate at the "Maison Derrier" into which the boys crash their toy plane at the beginning of the episode. Granted, it's a simple design and no doubt an easy coincidence, but I just thought it was interesting.
    *Note: This episode was originally broadcast on November 24, 1996, according to Wikipedia.
    Enjoy...

    By the way...

    That episode marks the first instance I've ever run into of the words "hairdo" and "Vishnu" being rhymed. Just when you thought no new rhymes had been made since 1963.

    It is obvious that the Simpsons pre-copied the iPod. Thieves!
