Simpsons quotes enter new Oxford dictionary

Simpsons News — Posted 23 Aug, 2007 by DisgruntledGoat

Homer SimpsonDictionaries have found a new master of the modern quotation to challenge the best of Oscar Wilde and Groucho Marx... Homer Simpson's creator Matt Groening.

The brains behind the world's favourite cartoon series has three new entries in the latest volume of quotations from the experts at Oxford University.

The latest edition of the Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations, published today, is a testament to the growing popularity and influence of characters from The Simpsons.

Homer Simpson phrases include: "Kids, you tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is never try."

Another Homer quotation featured is: "Kids are the best, Apu. You can teach them to hate the things you hate. And they practically raise themselves, what with the internet and all."

Also included is the much-repeated reference to the French by the Scottish caretaker Willie who remarks: "Bonjour, you cheese-eating surrender monkeys" in a 1995 episode.
