It is 2013 and people are still offended by the animated Fox TV show The Simpsons. This week, Governmentattic.org obtained an archive of indecency complaints about the Simpsons to the FCC from 2010-2013, via Freedom of Information Act request, . They are pretty amazing. (There's also an archive of South Park complaints [pdf] but people getting upset about The Simpsons is much funnier.)

I implore you to protect our young kids from such psychological damage that may very wile lead to physical damage and seriously punish the guilty please.
Here are all the complaints:
