She isn’t cool like Bart, adorable like Maggie, or tolerant like Marge.
Or half-baked like Homer.
She may not be the most charismatic or even overly likable, for that matter.
But you’ve got to admit, she has more brain cells than Bart, Maggie, Marge, and Homer.
Lisa Simpson: the vegetarian, overachieving, saxophone-playing middle child.
And boy, does she have sarcasm down to an art.
She’s a total smart-ass. Deadpanning is as much her strength as her intelligence.
Presenting ten of Lisa’s finest moments of sassy and witty wisdom:
(I do believe this is the new politically correct term for Not Happy.)
(Hence the term Hallmark Holiday. No moolah equals no love, don’t ya know?)
(I know, I know. Life is sooo unfair.)
( Homer and Marge have been trying for years to be slightly-better-than-totally-horrible parents.)
(Proof that even those Goody Two Shoes have skeletons in their closets.)
(If this isn’t the World’s Most Perfect Family, I’m at a total loss.)
(Surely just a minor drawback of being part of a dysfunctional family.)
(Depressing, yes. But also poignantly true.)
(She’s obviously referencing Homer, not me. Hey, I don’t even like beer!)
(My personal favorite. Attributed to both Abraham Lincoln and Mark Twain, I’m inclined to give Lisa full credit on this one.)
Lisa may not be as well-loved as some of the other Simpsons, but she does have redeeming qualities.
She’s passionate, she cares about the environment, and she actually has morals.
She rebels against societal norms, for goodness sake.
What’s not to love about that?
Yeah, I can definitely relate to Lisa Simpson.
After all, I am a fellow smart-ass and vegetarian, myself.
I, too, have a few more brain cells than the average cartoon character.
