I’m not sure how they keep doing this, predicting the future… maybe it has something to do with having to be creative enough and come up with enough content to fill over 680 episodes over 31 years, but The Simpsons are continuing to do that voodoo that they do with yet another prescient clip that predicts a combo platter of 2020’s two biggest threats to humanity: the ongoing global pandemic (along with the accompanying nutjob cures) and murder hornets.
So, not only did The Simpsons predict the coronavirus way back in 1993, they also predicted Tom Hanks would get infected, and just for good measure they threw in somehow knowing about killer flying insects happening at the same time as the pandemic in season 4, episode 21, “Marge in Chains.”
In that episode, The Simpsons’ “Osaka Flu” began in an Asian country, made its way to the United States, caused mass infections in its citizens, and the medical professional in the clip reveals that there is no known cure. Sound familiar?
And yes, I know hornets are not the same thing as bees, but they are both flying insects with stingers, so killer bees… murder hornets… close enough for government work.
Wait maybe this caused 2020? Did the simpsons fly too close to the sun?— Eddie D’ohgrou (@didgeridougrou) May 6, 2020
Yeah… maybe The Simpsons creators are in possession of some sort of orb of power that allows them to shape the future. We know the United States is in possession of one of those.

Didn’t wanna put “eating bees as a cure” into the universe enough as it already was
If we live long enough, we'll eventually see every Simpsons gag play out in real life.— Sean Whitmore (@SeanWhitmore) May 6, 2020
Stop saying “predicted”. It’s all planned— P r o p h e ☥ (@ziontheprophet) May 6, 2020
Can’t wait for this to happen…
You know it’s coming.
