With great respect, Marge Simpson

In 1990, First Lady of the United States Barbara Bush stated that “the dumbest thing [she] had ever seen” in a People magazine interview was “The Simpsons.” A short time afterward, ol’ Barb herself received a letter from matriarch Marge Simpson, who expressed her distress at the First Lady’s harsh criticism of her family. Shot out of the blue, the First Lady realized her “mistake” and sent a reply to Marge’s letter apologizing for her words. Here’s the full story from Letters of Note; the story of the First Lady receiving a letter from the blue-haired, green-dressed mother of three surfaced online before and was recalled in a “The Simpsons” boxset, but it’s always fun thing to read.

P.S. The framegrab featured on the right comes generously from Last Exit to Springfield!

Thanks for reading,
