Bart, Lisa ensnared in child porn scandal [The Simpsons]

The Simpsons

When I was in year nine, some kid brought printouts to school depicting various members of the Simpson clan doing each other (I recall a particularly graphic one of Bart diddling Marge). We all thought it was hilarious, but it turns out we were wrong: that alligator was sexually harassing that woman. I mean, those pictures depicted child pornography! Dun dun!:

A Supreme Court judge has ruled that an internet cartoon, in which child characters resembling those from The Simpsons engage in sexual acts, is child pornography… [the judge] found that, while The Simpsons characters had hands with four fingers and their faces were “markedly and deliberately different to those of any possible human being”, the mere fact that they were not realistic representations of human beings did not mean that they could not be considered people.

Dumb. Next up: judge finds Wile E. Coyote guilty of attempted murder.
