The Simpsons Signs - 63 Amusing Announcements That You'd Only Expect To Find In Springfield

The Simpsons was one of the first modern TV shows to litter its episodes with funny visual gags and easter eggs—something that's now abundant—that would only really reward the viewer after repeat viewings.

Or if you sat there constantly pausing it, annoying the heck out of whoever you were watching it with.

Fortunately for us someone recently uploaded a few of these instances to Imgur (and we've bumped it up with a few more) so you can enjoy the hilarious signage and shop names that usually fly by ("Now Entering Winnipeg, We Were Born Here, What's Your Excuse?" is a personal fave).

It's a timely reminder of what a great show The Simpsons is—or maybe was. Because now it's confirmed that Harry Shearer has left—the man who voiced Ned Flanders ("Stupid sexy Flanders!"), Mr. Burns, Principal Skinner, Otto, Smithers and loads more—it really does feel like the show is at the end of an era.

How can it continue with the loss of such iconic and beloved characters? HOW?

Perhaps it'll introduce some new ones, like Adult Swim's Rick and Morty, who recently gatecrashed The Simpsons couch gag scene for a brilliant promo. Check it below.
