Simpson’s River Crossing

30 March 2009 — 3 Comments


Over the weekend I happened to watch a new episode of The Simpsons (Season 20, Episode 13 for those who care) where Homer has to get Maggie, the dog ‘Santa’s Little Helper’, and a jar of rat poison across the river in a boat that can only hold him and one other item. The whole episode is an elaborate take on The Da Vinci Code.

This particular scene was an obvious parody of the classic logic puzzle (which is then directly referenced). I posted a while back about using the puzzle in a youth group setting. If you’re interested in learning more, click the link below to see the original post!

  1. Crossing a river can sometimes be hard, if you find no bridge.
    Crossing the English Channel could be even harder…Good luck: Jesus is THE bridge šŸ˜‰
