City Slang: Nuge is Simpson-ified

Posted By on Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 7:19 AM

Anyone who saw the Simpsons last night will have been treated to the sight of a yellow version of Detroit’s Ted Nugent.

Nugent played himself in a story which saw the right wing guitarist endorsed for President by Homer. Ted spent the episode throwing a dead elk on Marge’s dinner table, using the local children as arrows for his bow, and closed by playing a new version of the National Anthem to the tune of “Cat Scratch Fever”.

Homer’s endorsement came about because he had created a new Glenn Beck-esque TV show which spawned a Tea Party-like group called the Gravy Boaters.

Fair play to Nuge for being able to laugh at himself.
