Events Correctly Predicted By The Simpsons

Matt Groening and the writers on The Simpsons have made some incredibly bold predictions over the years- and way too many of them have actually come true.

Does this mean these visionary animators possess psychic powers, or is modern life just becoming so ridiculous it has more in common with cartoons than the real world we once knew?

We could debate that question for years to come, but Disney's recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox proves The Simpsons is without a doubt the most prescient show on television.

They predicted Trump's presidency, they knew Siegfried and Roy's tigers would one day turn on them, and they even predicted that Bengt Holmstrom of MIT would win the Nobel Prize for Economics.
