Bart Simpson Arrested, Tried By Mr. Burns
The classic show “The Simpsons” has been engrained into the minds of the mass public and will permanently have a spot in the memory banks of the world for generations to come. We all know each of (fictional) Springfield’s colorful characters.
But let’s focus on one of the more memorable characters.
Bart Simpson, the terrible, misguided, prankster, bad ass son of the donut craving alcoholic Homer Simpson. The little brat has been on television for more than twenty years and yet we’ve never seen him grow up (or even hit a growth spurt). We’ve seen it all from the Lego colored juvenile delinquent from getting suspended from school (several times) to inviting real aliens to Halloween (several times) to even taking people hostage (okay, not sure if that’s happened, but with over twenty years in the game, I’m sure it happened somewhere in there).
It’s all fun and games when it is on TV, but in a random turn of events Bart Simpson is really here, really doing crimes and was really on trial… by a judge named Mr. Burns.
No, I can’t make this stuff up.
According to the Huffington post, a man named Bart Simpson has appeared in a U.K. court before judge Mr. Burns.
Okay, admittedly his full name is Barton Simpson (but that doesn’t make this story any less cool). The 56 year old company director pleaded not guilty to the accusation of carrying a prohibited firearm. He was accused to have been carrying a .38 Smith and Wesson revolver (guess he was ready to rob a Kwik-E-Mart).
As hilarious as this is, this is still a pretty serious offense, which more descriptively states that Simpson was on his way to fly to Croatia (you know, for business stuff) and pranced his way to the glorious metal detector that we all know and love.
Lowe and behold the red lights of shame, along with flying angels off death accompanied by chariots of fire, soon descended upon Simpson to cast judgment… or at least that must’ve been what it felt like.
Soon Bart Simpson was in cuffs but soon let out on bail or he could’ve broken out. By whatever means, he was able to walk freely, but then got slapped with a court date to remember.
The incident occurred on May 31st of last year, and the trial was sometime a few weeks ago.
After standing in front of judge Mr. Recorder Burns, I’m guessing the fear just took hold of Bart Simpson, which caused him to spill the beans. Luckily, this act of honesty caused Simpson to skip past the jail sentence and forward on to the slap on the wrist.
Bart Simpson was ordered to do a 12-month community bid with 140 hours of unpaid work and he also has to pay around 800 Euros.
Bart Simpson almost bit the bullet on this one. He barely made it through by hairs on his chin (since he’s all grown up now), but in classic Bart fashion he always makes it out of serious trouble.
Just watch out for those chokes from Homer. Those things are vicious.
