Krustys Bawdy Joke SR Geek Picks: Flash Fan Film, Batman & Robin Honest Trailer, Simpsons Adult Jokes & More


For many of us who grew up in the 90s, The Simpsons was not only a hilarious, groundbreaking show, but a learning experience. It advanced our knowledge of pop culture well beyond our years (Seriously, how else would most 9-year-olds know about Citizen Kane and Stanley Kubrick movies?) But aside from the dozens of references to movies, TV, and books that we had to ask our parents about, The Simpsons was also loaded with subtle and not-so-subtle sexual references. I recently rewatched the entire series and noted ten particularly sexual jokes that, as a kid, slipped past my freakin’ ears.

(Note: By “The Simpsons,” I mean the classic years of the show. Seasons 1-11 only.)
