They've been used to teach everything from math to social science, nuclear chemistry to English as a second language and even religion (although opinions vary on the value of that). The Simpsons: is there anything they can't do?

One of a couple books on the topic. I really like this book, especially the essay on how Bart isn't a Nietzschian superman.

They could be useful in teaching economics too: Homer violates almost all axioms of preferences (except maybe non-satiation) and has a discount factor close to zero.

I used it lots of times in teaching ESL in Japan.

"Lisa, this is lamb, not a lamb."

Watch the video clip, fill in the blanks, then tell me, what does Homer mean. I miss teaching.
