>The most famous dysfunctional family of 1990s television enjoyed, by today’s standards, an almost dreamily secure existence that now seems out of reach for all too many Americans. I refer, of course, to the Simpsons. Homer, a high-school graduate whose union job at the nuclear-power plant required little technical skill, supported a family of five. A home, a car, food, regular doctor’s appointments, and enough left over for plenty of beer at the local bar were all attainable on a single working-class salary. Bart might have had to find $1,000 for the family to go to England, but he didn’t have to worry that his parents would lose their home.
What do you lads think of this?
As a Millennial who grew up thinking the Simpsons was the greatest show of all time, approaching my mid-30s I'm looking at their lifestyle (which I considered to be mundane as a teenlad) as an unattainable goal and it feels bad man.>>8032>>8032
