Bartsimpson_l¡Ay caramba! According to Reuters, Venezuelan TV has pulled The Simpsons from its 11 a.m. slot, with the argument that the show is bad for children. Going up in its place: reruns of Baywatch Hawaii. Now, granted, kids can probably learn a lot more about some subjects (CPR, human anatomy) from the bouncing lifeguards than from the four-fingered toon family, but still, harmful for children? Why, look at the United States: for the past 18 years, an entire generation of American kids has grown up watching Bart’s mischief, and look at how they turned out…

Uh, never mind, Venezuela. Carry on.
