      Abstract

      The creators of The Simpsons have constructed a model of society, one which due to the show's longevity and popularity can be used by the teacher of politics to illustrate key points of the curriculum. This article suggests three such uses of The Simpsons, namely the depiction of gender in society, the nature of politicians, and what can and cannot be banned with regard to public health.
