Friend pimp,


…be sure to be at Boswell Books at 2PM.

My good friend Denise Du Vernay will be speaking about how to use the Simpsons as a teaching aid in the classroom. Her book, The Simpsons in the Classroom, will also be available for purchase and, if you’re lucky, she might even sign it for you.

The event, titled “Take the Simpsons Back to School,” is only an hour long so be sure to check it out! Learn more about the event here. Boswell Books is located at 2559 N. Downer.

Cold pimpin’,


…was a guest blogger yesterday on USA Today’s “Pop Candy.”

I’d kill for that traffic,


…co-wrote a book called “The Simpsons in the Classroom: Embiggening the Learning Experience with the Wisdom of Springfield.”

And guess what? Pre-orders have started to ship!

We haven’t gotten our copy yet but word is they’ve already started to show up in a few mailboxes, so we better be getting our copy soon! Or else! Suckas!

“The Simpsons in the Classroom” explores the popularity of the cartoon series and how its lessons can be used as a learning tool in education. The book outlines ways for instructors to introduce Simpson-inspired concepts to their students, be it in literature and composition, linguistics and cultural studies, or gender studies and media appreciation.

Denise has been working her butt off on this project for over a year now and the payoff is finally here (and well worth the wait), so be sure to order your copy here today. Also, be sure to check out the book’s website here, and follow Denise and Karma on Twitter here.

Proud bald brother-like figure,


Old Poop!
