The Rumor is True

There’s a famous 1991 Simpsons episode called “Stark Raving Dad” in which Homer spends some time in a mental hospital along with a guy who thinks he’s Michael Jackson.  The voice certainly sounds like Michael but the Simpsons never said either way whether it was actually him or not.  Well, in a recent interview Matt Groening confirmed that, yes, it was Michael.  The thing I find really interesting is that Michael initiated the appearance.  He called Groening out of the blue one day and said he was a fan of the show and wanted to be on.  And this is funny…Groening hung up on him because he thought it wasn’t actually him.  Check out a clip here.
