    Isn't everyone in the Simpson's a stereotype of someone? Homer's the stereotype of the average American male, Marge- the average AMerican woman minus the tall *** hair, Bart- the average American trouble making kid- and Lisa- the rare Human Being who smarter than everyone around her that gets so frustrated because everyone is so stupid. Ned represents the average religous passive-aggresive fanatic (not the terrorist kind or abortion bombing kind), and Chief Wiggum is perhaps the most obvious stereotype :) and so on. But we also can't forget Mr. Burns.

    I agree with "mascara" Why be worried about the Middle Eastern Indians being offended when the Simpson's pokes fun of everyone equally. Besides. Stereotypes don't just fall from the sky, they are usually based in some kind of fact.

    The same way Scottish people feel about Groundskeeper Willy or Italian people feel about Fat Tony or That Italian pizza guy Luigi or Mexicans Feel about Bumble Bee man.It's just a funny cartoon,don't take it seriously.

    There's nothing wrong with that portrayal. Its juz their manner of speaking that is being portrayed there but aside from that, none.
