Plus, their timing would seem to be about perfect. I don't know what Lisa Simpson age was supposed to be in 2000 (does it ever change, anyway?), but I'd guess around middle school, which would put her somewhere in the range of 11-14, maybe? For the sake of argument, let's say 11. So she would be eligible to run for president in 2024, when she'd be 35. And if she was taking over for Trump after Trump having served two terms (which of course he would, because he'd certainly be the most terrific president ever), then that would mean he'd have been originally elected in 2016.

Coincidence? I think not.
LOL.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.
