Simpsons fans were brokenhearted over a CNN story claiming that the Simpsons split up in the season premiere. Homer and Marge publicly address the rumors in a video declaration of their love.
“Marjorie and I are as solid as a rock,” Homer insists as he displays his wife’s wedding ring.
As a gesture of love, Maggie plays Cupid but shoots her father in the eye instead of the heart. Homer tells them to alert CNN that he’ll never see again. The implication is that the media overreacted and the couple’s split is temporary much like how Sideshow Bob kills Bart in this year’s Halloween episode “Treehouse of Horror XXVI.”
The Simpsons season 27 premieres Sunday 8PM, September 27 on Fox.
