From the satirical website,, we have this “news”:

In an ongoing effort to make sure cartoon characters are only voiced by actors who are exactly like them, Abraham “Grampa” Simpson will now be voiced by Joe Biden in all future episodes of The Simpsons.

Dan Castellaneta said he would be stepping down from the role in order to make space for a real elderly person with dementia to take the part. As a result, Castellaneta will now only voice approximately 1,429 characters on the show.

I have to admit, I busted out laughing when I read this…

…and then stopped laughing when I considered the possibility that the guy they are talking about could be sitting in the Oval Office next January.

That made it not-so-funny in a hurry.
