The Simpsons fans claim episode predicted OceanGate Titanic sub rescue mission
Who does not like the TV cartoon series ‘The Simpsons?’ The dysfunctional family’s characters are oh-so-adorable: Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa. Interestingly, the famed TV series has become a Nostradamus of sorts. The animated sitcom, in a strange development, has once again made a prediction, this time bearing traces of the ill-fated Titan expedition.
Fans of ‘The Simpsons’ have highlighted an episode where Homer goes on a deep-sea diving mission, only to encounter ‘low oxygen tank’ issues.
They are claiming that the iconic show’s episode, that was telecast 17 years ago, appears to show a submarine close to the Titanic.
Many avid followers of the popular show, produced by Mike Reiss, were quick to point out a deja vu feeling: it bore striking similarities to events surrounding the missing Titan submersible.
Season 17's 10th episode, titled 'Homer's Paternity Coot,' shows Homer Simpson reconnecting with his long-lost father Mason Fairbanks, who salvages lost treasures from the sea.
He declares: 'Today I am filled with joy. Searching for treasure with my long-lost son. My dream for each of you is that you find the happiness I feel today.'
This is not the first time that ‘The Simpsons’ has turned out to be spot on. It correctly predicted the onset of the coronavirus, and that Donald Trump would become President of America, among other forecasts.
