Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Illustration on Saturday 31 May 2014

Back in the 80′s when The Simpsons first aired on TV, Homer, Marge and the kids looked a whole lot different than they do today. Marge’s blue hair was nowhere near as tall as it is today, and Bart’s expression was a lot less cheeky and a lot more aggressive.

Just how scripted is a pro-wrestling match? As scripted as these leaked scripts

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Illustration on Tuesday 6 May 2014
