Simpsons, The Easter Egg - Pot Leaf

If you watch the episode where Homer goes to the superbowl in Miami, as soon as he gets off of the bus there is a palm tree. If you look at it closely, you will see that it isn't a palm tree but a very large pot leaf. I have noticed several eggs that have to do with Pot, so I guess it would be safe to say that MG smokes it?

Yes, and there's an episode where Homer is afraid of John, the gay store owner, so Matt must be homophobic. But Smithers is gay, so maybe Matt is too. Hmmm. And many episodes slam Republicans, so Matt must be a Democrat. But, the show often pokes fun at Democrats, so Matt is definitely a Republican. And Barney is a lush, so Matt must be a lush too. But there was that prohibition episode, so maybe he's against drinking alltogether. And Matt must also be an old crotchety man, because that's what Abe Simpson is. Although, Maggie's a little baby girl, so maybe that's what Matt is. Come on people! Just because characters have certain traits, or certain references are made, it doesn't mean that Matt (who doesn't even write all the episodes, or for that matter, animate them all) is that way or feels that way... Let's get real people.

Who could forget the Simpons episode where they look into the future and Lisa is president of the U.S. and Bart sporting dred locks asks for just one thing... "Legalize it" and Lisa says,consider it done!

I think that this whole discussion is hilarious. Half of you swear that they must all be druggies if they mention drugs. The other half find it appalling to suggest that these people might still be smoking pot. Writers on The Simpsons are probably just like the average American public: some did, some still do, some never will. Does it matter? The jokes are still great, especially the "Smells like Otto's jacket" one.

In response to PhilipWKeck's novel, some points you made were wrong (OK, all of them). Such as when the log hit the hemp shop..true, hemp is not pot but there was a huge BONG next to the building...remember? Plus, there are tons of drug references..such as the shop in the mall "Stoner's pot palace" "I'm not, not licking toads..." Homer while tripping on Buffotonin (Lisa) "Mom, dad, there is something i know you won't like, but i need to do" (Homer) "Marge i think lisa's narcing on our stash." (Marge) "Homer, we don't have a stash" (Homer trying to cover)"right...we don't have... a stash." (Homer) "I want to go to Jamaica and pass the doochie to the left hand side" This is at the beginning of the episode where Homer tells Lisa and Bart about when he was in the barber-shop quartet. Bart: (holding a bong) I got this cool pencil sharpener at the flea market. Homer: far out man, I haven't seen a bong in years. That episode where Homer changes his name to Max Power..and him and Marge go to that garden party..and Woody Harrelson is there..and the guy he is talking to tells him, "wow i cant believe your clothes are made of 100% hemp"..and they show Woody's clothes and they're just a bunch of pot leaves sewed together. When Bart says "what smell? its smells like Auto's jacket" Even in Futurama there are drug references : Fry finds an old hippy van and the people from the future are trying to figure out how it works, and the professor says "where's the device that lets you slow down the passage of time" and fry pulls out a bong and says "under the seat" There are many other funny references...not eggs, but good for a laugh.

Some of the greatest scenes in the Simpsons were the ones where one of the characters ended up tripping (Marge drinking the bad water, Homer eating the Guatamalan Insanity Pepper, licking frogs butts, etc)... and one thing i know for certain is that someone who does not (or at least, who didn't use to) smoke marijuana and drop acid, etc, would not be able to so wonderfully turn that experience into a scene in a cartoon... Matt & company know what's up...

Lisa says 'Legalise what?' then Bart raises his eyebrow at her and she says ' Oh! oh consider it done' Also, what is the big deal if the cartoon's writers or animators do smoke pot? Practically evrybody does

This is a bit off topic but in the episode where Homer becomes a missionary, and starts licking frogs, Marge comes in on the radio and says something like "Hello, Homer Is there anybody in there?" Which I think is a nod to Pink Floyd. Any one else notice this?

Hey Teenie, lo.phi.bry wasn't wrong (well not entirely) he was just talking about a different episode. It was the one where Sideshow Bob ran for mayor. There was a parody of Rush Limbaugh in the episode (can't remember what his name was) and it was part of one of his radio shows that he made reference to "our three-term, wife swapping, pot smoking, illiterate mayor" referring to Quimby They then showed Quimby listening to the show while watering the pot plants in his office closet and he said "Hey, I am no longer illiterate"

Also, in one episode Bart goes on the Indian reservation and has a "vision" about the future (which is suspicious enough in itself) in which he is a down and out and Lisa is President. Although Bart is shown as a moocher his ability to get out of paying back loans means he saves Lisa and America by convincing the countries who America is seriously in debt too (after investing too heavily in children) to not demand immediate payment. Lisa asks him how she can repay him to which he replies “Legalize it”!!!!!! Lisa says "What? Oh, consider it done". And lets not forget the Duff Gardens episode (when Aunt Gladys dies) where Lisa drinks the water from a ride, hallucinates and proclaims herself the Lizard queen which may be a reference to the Lizard king himself mainly Doors frontman, Jim Morrison

Other references to pot: 1. When Otto auditions for the part of Poochie in Itchy and Scratchy, he says, "A talking dog? What have you guys been smoking?" 2. Otto writes wedding invitations for his wedding on Zig-Zag paper. 3. Remember when Ralph found a package for Otto at the post office and the dogs were sniffing it? That wasn't dog food Ralph.

Also in the episode called "Homerpalooza", when Bart takes Lisa and Bart to the Hullabalooza festival Lisa and Bart are at Cypress Hill's set they smell a strange scent then Bart says "What's that smell?" to which Lisa replies "It smells like Otto's Jacket." Cut to Otto who thinks his shoes are talking to him. But I agree just 'cause it is strongly hinted that Otto smokes dope it doesn't mean all the writers do as well. Although statistically at least one of them must do.

I agree with Oli in if "Otto smokes dope it doesn't mean all the writers do as well. Although statistically at least one of them must do." These are usual such things, what only a "stoner" (if you want to call us so) can understand or know. And does somebody remember the episode, where Simpsons had new neighbors and in the end of the show, I remember some talking about pot and dancing in the house and the cops were outside - or was I so stoned then, I can't remember right at all? ;)

Hehehe... There's also the episode when Homer goes tripping on the Mexican Insanity Peppers. BTW, in the episode about the illiterate pot-smoking Mayor Quimby, immediately after Mayor Quimby says "I'm not illiterate anymore"; it flashes to the view outside of his window. A member of the crowd is holding a sign that says "Leeglize It"

In response to Jax ('lets get real???...it's a cartoon people!!!!'). Yeah, IT'S a cartoon... we're not. Just coz people make stupid assumptions and point out the obvious doesn't mean we hafta sit idley by. I DO take it personally... If you're gonna register your opinions on the GREATEST SHOW OUT THERE, then bloody well get your facts straight! !AND! When all of Springfield (bar the Rev.) are being shown the 'MOVEMENTARIANS' movie about 'the leader' and his cause, Otto wishes to leave, saying before he attempts to leave, 'Man, this whole place smokes on the wacky tobaccy.' ... :oP

In the recent episode with "Lisa's main squeeze" Joshua Jackson, the log that is the Lisa Land sign slides down a hill and into some kind of bong shop. I was kind of half paying attention so I don't remember the specifics.

Now for the next shipment: 1. In the episode with Jessica Lovejoy, Principal Skinner admits he smelled marijuana smoke in 'Nam. 2. In the episode where Bart accidently kills the bird and he cares for the eggs, Homer thinks that Bart is running a drug lab in his treehouse. 3. In the episode where Homer becomes sanitation manager, he gets extra funding by letting other cities dump trash in an abandoned mine in Springfield. However, Marge and Lisa think Homer got the money by pushing drugs. Later, Lisa wishes Homer had sold drugs instead.

In one of the episodes, I have no idea which one, Homer is at the Kwik-E-mart, and when he is standing at the counter if you look next to him there is a sign for the lottery and instead of saying jackpot it says "Jack's Pot" Also if you look in every episode (or so I've been told) there is a Volkswagen Bug.

Just think of the numbers here. I can't recall any show, cartoon, or other to have as many pot under tones! Well maybe except for That Seventies Show but hay, it was the seventies. I have some that were not mentioned but my details are scanty! There was the episode where Marge didn't want Homer to attend the Annual Cook-Off because the year before he got smashed and walked around naked or something. He smelled the cook-off from the front door and cried like a child until marge let him go. ....After he poured hot wax in his mouth he attempted Chiefs Voodoo Peppers again and ended up sitting on a rock talking to a Wolf, or a Fox or a Coyote. I won't get into his little trip getting there! How about the show where there is a dance or something at the school gym an Skinner is checking jackets at the door. A few kids walk past and he looks them over, then as another kid walks past Skinner says "Is that a bong in your pocket er oh do you have Asthma?" You see a bulge in his jacket pocket change from a Water Bong to a Asthma inhaler... Someone should document all the 'PotNouf's' and post em somewhere...

The the chili pepper episode, while there is no such thing as the type of insane asylum pepper they described, it is possible to get really screwed up on peppers. When you eat a pepper (not a Jalapeano, but a real hot pepper like a Red Savina or a Scotch Bonnet, or better yet, semi-pure capsicum powder), your brain things your tongue is being physically burned. And your brain responds by releasing endorphins (an opiate compound produced in the body) to help ease the pain. The endorphins can cause a chili pepper fanatic (or a marathon runner) to feel extremely euphoric and self-confident. I myself have done this several times, if you can try to ignore the pain, you will have an altered thought process. BTW, it's possible to go into shock from eating too many peppers (although a case like that has never been documented). And in the Homer "Jay" Simpsons episode there are two huge references. First off, Jay is a slang term for a joint. And secondly, the special crops the hippies grew weren't marijuana, they were growing Peyote. And if I remember correctly, Peyote contains mescaline which is a disassociative and psychedelic. BTW, while I wouldn't call anyone on the staff a stoner, I think we can all agree that they do and/or have use drugs. Think about it, they're writers. Do you know how EXTREMELY common it is for writers to use drugs? And the staff went to college in the 60's/70's. The drug use statistic for that time was between 60%-70%. BTW, I often use drugs. But I am not a druggie, or an addict (I know every says there not an addict, but the vast majority of drugs I've used are barely addictive). I not dumb either, the 3 times I took the SAT, my total score was between the high 1400's and low 1500's.

Okay, this wasn't in The Simpsons, but this was in Futurama, Groening's other cartoon. When Fry purchases a VW-esque van, Professor Farnsworth asks, "Where's the device that allows you to slow or speed up time?" Fry says, "Right under the seat." He pulls out a bong.

Anyone who has done any drugs would agree that the writers either recreationally do drugs now, or at least have done drugs before. The odds of Matt Groening letting SOOO many drug references slip if he didn't have some loving relationship of them is slim. Any TRUE Simpsons fan wold whole heartedly agree on this. Just for clarification, Otto has no official last name, in the Simpsons guide to the cast it only list Otto as "Otto;" if there has been a reliable source that proves this wrong please post. (I don't care either way, just want the facts straight.) "Oooh, the walls are melting again."

It's interesting that you people know so much, yet most of you can't name one episode title. One person says that Lisa said Mayor Quimby smokes pot. This was in 2F02 "Sideshow Bob Roberts", said by Birch Barlow, who called Quimby a "tax-cheating, wife-swapping, pot-smoking illiterate". To which Quimby replies "Hey, I am no longer illiterate." You want a marijuana reference, watch DABF11 "Weekend at Burnsie's". Or as you may have called it, "the Phish episode".

One of the seemingly most weed influenced episodes is the casino one - "Nothing can stop me now... apart from tiny, little microbes..."

Just because drug references are made does not mean that MG is a druggie. There are also sex and violence references, but I sincerely doubt that he is sex-crazed, planning any senseless violent acts, or anything else of that sort. It's a pop-culture show, and it's just modern American humor.

Lemme clear something up, the episode where there was a big cannabis leaf disguised as a palm tree would be an example of an easter egg, while Homer flying to work or virtually everything Otto related would be humor. Meaning that at some point in time, there was or is at least someone involved in the making of the simpsons who smokes weed. So don't try to prove each other wrong, just smoke a joint and get along.
