FAMILY DISCUSSION

These are the Simpsons, probably the most famous family ever shown on tv
since the 90’s. The family is formed by Homer, Margie, Bart, Lisa and
Maggie! Every one of them has unique qualities…So, let’s have a look on
these qualities. Homer is the father, perhaps not as dedicated as he should
be and for sure is an idiot with cheap philosophy. He is taller than Margie,
fatter than Margie and of course stupider than her too. Margie is a
dedicated mother who does not have a job. She is tall, but shorter than
Homer and thinner than him! Her most evident characteristic is her long
blue hair and her green dress. Together, they have 3 children, Bart, Lisa
and Maggie. Bart Simpson is 10 years old, Lisa is eight years old and Maggie
is just two years old. So, Bart is older than Lisa and Maggie. That makes
him the oldest of the children. But age is not a synonym for intelligence, at
least not in the Simpsons family. Lisa is more intelligent than Bart, Homer,
Margie and Maggie; she is the most intelligent of the family!
They have two cars, a pink and a green one. Margie drives the pink and
homer the green. The pink car is faster than the green one, but the green
one is more economic, but the green car is as old as the pink car. In
conclusion, they are a portrait of the typical American family, I can’t say if
it’s a good or a bad example, but is a very good cartoon.
