There’s NO WAY this homeowner is married

One of the strengths of "The Simpsons" is its phenomenal supporting cast. We're disappointed that this Nova Scotian lawn does not pay tribute to Apu the Kwikie Mart owner, Troy McClure the infomercial king, or even Police Chief Wiggum!

Nothing brightens up a Canadian roadtrip adventure more than seeing American cultural imperialism smiling from the natives’ lawns.

Chances of an adult woman living in this house: ZERO. Otherwise this guy’s Simpsons fetish would be channeled through a few figurines in the recreation room or basement.

We love the cash box on the lawn asking for public funding.

And why is Milhouse (creepy kid with glasses on left) appearing to do the happy Peanuts/Snoopy dance?


EXCLUSIVE LANDSCAPING ADVICE FROM A REAL-LIFE SIMPSONS ARTIST!

John Krause, the prop design lead artist for “The Simpsons Movie,” is the guy who draws Lisa’s saxophone, Homer Simpson’s frosted donuts, Reverend Lovejoy’s Bible and virtually every product on the shelves of Springfield’s Kwik-E-Mart.

He also sometimes draws Itchy and Scratchy’s wounded internal organs!

Here’s what he had to say about this Simpsonian landscaping:

“Love it! I wish this guy was my neighbor!!!!

I’d have to tell him (perhaps after a few beers) that I’d like to see the characters interacting more. Everyone seems isolated and alone.”

    Milhouse isn’t dancing, he’s cowering – what he’s best at.
