Everyone has seen at least one episode of ‘The Simpsons’. The show has been on since 1989 and is the longest-running American animated series. It’s also the longest-running American sitcom and the longest-running American scripted primetime television series. Recently a mom gave her son a haircut inspired by the show, and it’s hilarious.

If you’re unfamiliar with the character ‘Mr. Burns’, he’s the owner of the nuclear plant where Homer Simpson works. He’s a cranky, evil, and wealthy villain on the show. He’s bald except for some hair around the back of his head. Definitely an ‘old man’ look with the hair. A mom gave her young son a classic Mr. Burns haircut and the video is going viral.

According to Newsweek, Johanna Clark uploaded a clip to her TikTok page, @pink_nade, showing her son rockin’ the hairdo. She captioned the video with, ‘Am I a bad mom for letting my son cut his hair like Mr. Burns?’ And the answer is no! It’s hilarious! Her son has Mr. Burns’ mannerisms down pat and it’s perfect.

It’s obvious that the kid is enjoying his odd haircut and is having fun with it. This young man doesn’t take himself too seriously, and childhood is supposed to be fun! Besides, his hair will grow back. I love that he has a great sense of humor and the confidence to rock the hairdo. Good stuff!

Most folks online agree that the haircut is too funny! If you’re familiar with the show, you will love this! For whatever reason, this week has seemed very long. This video is the perfect way to get into a Friday. It will give you the giggles!

Poll: '80s & '90s Were Best Decades For Television

According to a new poll from YouTube TV, Americans believe the ‘80s and ‘90s were the best decades for television. It’s hard to argue with that. I certainly like a lot of shows that were created after 2000, but we all tend to favor the anything we had or experienced when we were younger.

The Brighter Side of News reports that the survey of 2,000 adults revealed that about 75% admit they love watching reruns of their favorite shows. It’s like comfort food. When asked what makes a show “good” in the first place, 60% say it’s all about the cast and the writing. Another 65% say that the best shows have characters that remind them of people in their own lives.

So which shows made the list as the greatest of all time? Four out of the top five fall into the ’80s and ’90s categories. Those were “Friends,” “Seinfeld,” “Three’s Company,” and “Frasier.” “Game of Thrones” was the 21st Century exception. And only one reality show cracked the top 20. Can you guess which one? You can see the complete list HERE.
