If you’ve been a longtime viewer of The Simpsons, then you know that the writers they pick for the show are basically clairvoyant.
Now maybe you can just chalk it up to humanity being predictably ridiculous, or the fact that the show’s been around forever, so the writers are bound to cover everything that’s going to happen in the scope of past, present, and future history, but there are some seriously impressive social phenomenons that the show’s got right on the nose.
Here are some of the craziest ones.
Siegfried and Roy being attacked by their tigers.
Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show.

The discovery of “The God Particle”.
The inexplicable theft of a lemon tree.
