When the writers of Fox's The Simpsons predicted Lady Gaga doing the Super Bowl halftime show, I thought it was cool. When they predicted Donald Trump becoming the President of the United States complete with accurate logo and signage, I thought it was pretty crazy. However, OLYMPIC GOLD IN CURLING?! This is where I draw the line! What is happening?! Who is the time traveler among the writing staff?
Eight years ago, The Simpsons ran an episode called “Boy Meets Curl.” The writers predicted a gold-medal for the USA men's curling team! The only flaw was one of the two opponents. The writers had Sweden and Russia at the end, and in real life, it was Switzerland and Russia. OH COME ON!!
Check out the tweet celebrating the prediction from Al Jean (one of the original writers for The Simpsons for over 30 years)
