We’re 30 seasons in, and “The Simpsons” continue to live a typical, middle class existence. But they could be the wealthiest family on Earth. God knows, they’ve had opportunities.
A website went through the first 29 seasons and tallied all the money the Simpsons could have made, but let slip through their fingers. And it came to $350 billion.
Not surprisingly, Homer is responsible for most of it: $333 billion. And he started messing things up in episode one, when he lost out on a $12,000 Christmas bonus.
He also lost $10 million by selling his dog’s puppies, who went on to win $10 million at dog races…and $150 million by not selling the rights to Tomacco, the tomatoes he grew with tobacco inside them.
Bart is second, costing the family $16 billion…followed by Homer’s father Abe, who cost them close to $105 million.
Lisa’s next at $12.4 million…and Marge has done the least damage, at $2 million.
