This is a very interesting analysis of how and why The Simpsons, which actually died somewhere around season 9 or 10, is still so relevant to us through the way we’ve memed the hell out of it.

Seriously, if you enjoy the way the internet seems to just latch on to certain things and make them into Things™, you’ll like this.
I love the internet. I love when the internet takes a thing and makes a meme out of it.
Example: the “steamed hams” scene from an old episode of The Simpsons (“22 Short Films about Springfield,” 1996). Observe the original clip:
“Steamed Hams but There’s a Different Animator Every 13 Seconds”
“Steamed Hams but Chalmers is Obsessively Investigative”
And this freaking masterpiece of the internet, “Steamed Hams Inc.” Seriously, it’s so good. Watch it. It will change your life. I love the creativity of humans.
