In the 1990’s Cathy and Herb Roberts had one rule for their son Chris. No Simpsons. “That show glorified being flat-out disrespectful to parents!” Cathy said. “Just trash!” added Herb.
It’s an all too common story for Christian kids growing up in the 90’s. Chris Roberts remembers those Sunday nights trying to watch even a few minutes of The Simpsons. “Oh man. I don’t miss those days. Trying to go over to a friend’s house or something to watch it.” Chris said with a chuckle. “It’s nice now. After we put the kids down, the wife and I will sometimes enjoy a Simpson episode or two.”
But Chris’ remarks seemed a bit curious. Cathy and Herb are on the record saying that Chris would never do such a thing. “He was always a good boy. He wasn’t allowed to watch The Simpson’s then, and to this day—he’s never seen a single episode” Cathy remarked.
However, our investigative team found dozens of episodes on Chris’ DVR system along with several Simpsons DVD box sets in his den.
When pressed for comment Chris said, “yeah, I know. I told you I watch The Simpsons all the time. I’ve never really hid this fact. Please leave me alone.”
It doesn’t take a private investigator to know that Chris is guilty of watching The Simpsons, but we have hired one anyway. When the investigation concludes, Mr. and Mrs. Roberts will be alerted to our findings.
