The legendary “Simpsons” … just got even more legendary.

We might not be at the peak anymore of the cultural iconic status of “The Simpsons,” but it’s clear that the show (currently in its 35th season) still has it, as evidenced by Sunday’s episode, which hilariously called out Michigan Wolverines football coach Jim Harbaugh.

On Christmas Eve, a new episode of the show titled “Do The Wrong Thing” began with Grampa Simpson retiring from an amazing competitive fishing career (which we’ve never heard of before, but I digress). Anyway, that sports reference then leads us into Homer and Bart teaming up in different sports, though rather than winning championships and achieving glory together, they both become serial cheaters to achieve their conquests.

Sports was the centerpiece of this episode, with shots also being taken at New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and the University of Southern California. Hell, the show even featured a guest appearance from legendary sports broadcaster Dan Patrick.

But the highlight of the episode had to be the jab they took at Harbaugh when they had Bart teach a Cheating 101 class at an institution named the … wait for it … Jim Harbaugh Center For Competitive Imbalance (lol).


Straight up comedic gold … here are some other clips from the show, with one taking a hilarious shot at LIV Golf:

Shoutout to “The Simpsons,” man! Still got it!
