Could Elon Musk Really Be ‘The Simpsons’ Villain Hank Scorpio?

Published

He’s happy, he looks like he got it.

Homer Simpson receives a basket of food and, also, a nice welcome. After years of grumbling with Mr. Burns, Homer has changed jobs. His boss is the very nice Hank Scorpio (“The Simpsons,” Season 8, Episode 2, 1996).

“I’ve never liked to see myself on top of other people. I’m just like you. Sure, I have better hours, I earn a lot more, I get more vacation time, but I’m not more than you,” Scorpio tells Homer.

However, minutes later, Hank reveals himself as a psychopath who threatens the United Nations with a nuclear device, is determined to kill Mr. Bont – a hero who parodies James Bond, and faces an army carrying a flamethrower because of a “little problem with the government.”

Oddly enough, Hank never stopped being nice to Homer. Thus, the question arises: Can people be relatable and, at the same time, a supervillain?

In the edges of the Internet, a conspiracy theory was soon woven: What if, in reality, Hank Scorpio is inspired by a real-life character?

The Simpsons Know The Truth

The predictive ability of Matt Groening’s animated series is well known: from Donald Trump’s presidency, through the attack on the Twin Towers, the 2016 Rolling Stones tour and so many more events.

10 Weed Strains for People Who Like Cheese

Published

on

This article was originally published on Weedmaps and appears here with permission.

National Queso Day, one of the most important made-up holidays in the world, is on September 20. We wanted to provide a game plan for celebrating. First step: get you some cheesy dip if possible (Tex-Mex is best, fight me). Second: smoke some cannabis that smells, tastes, and is named after cheese.

Here are some of the best cheesy cannabis strains out there.

Cheese

Obviously, Cheese is the first flower on our list, and the family you’ll be smoking from on this glorious day. Cheese is a legendary cannabis strain from way back in the ’80s that has led to the birth of your favorite hybrids. It was reportedly brought over to the Netherlands from California by pioneer breeder David Waston aka Sam The Skunkman. 

Cheese, a phenotype of the famous Skunk #1, comes forward with a pungent, funky, stank armpit-like odor akin to the smell of a whole stack of Kraft singles. The effects punch with a heavy cerebral and full-body feel that ultimately leaves you dumb stoned and happy. On Weedmaps, reviewers have reported Cheese’s top three effects as relaxed, happy, and euphoric.

UK Cheese

When a strain pops off, iterations of it will start popping up everywhere. So, right after the original Cheese came UK Cheese. 

UK Cheese, also called Exodus Cheese, is a product from a United Kingdom-based breeder collective called Exodus. In terms of popularity, it’s pretty much the OG Kush of Great Britain. Just like the original Cheese, it comes from a phenotype of Skunk #1, and as its name suggests, carries a funky cheesy stench that smells up any room. Smoke some for National Queso Day.
