Literary References in The Simpsons (The Atlantic)

Sometimes, but usually on Tuesdays, too many troubles and too little tea make for a long, long day — a day so long it cannot be fixed with various forms and flavors of cheese. On those days, I turn to The Simpsons, the other family I grew up with, for a bit of cartoon sunshine.

The Atlantic put together this slideshow of literary references in The Simpsons, and every time I click through it, all my troubles seem so far away.

When I grow up, I want to be Lisa Simpson.
