The Fox television division has subpoenaed YouTube to get the name of the user who uploaded episodes of The Simpsons, but maybe the network should be checking its own headquarters.
Spoof spies are not sure that the subpoena as well as the Internet sleuthing and camera surveillance by Fox will catch the culprit. The spies say it could be an inside job; Homer and Marge Simpson may be involved.
When the news of the theft was broadcast, Homer, who was at the local tavern, looked completely unconcerned. He continued to guzzle his beer and shout "Woo-hoo!" Similarly, Marge Simpson, out for dinner with friends, just shrugged and expressed no surprise when she heard the news.
Some observers think that Marge's beehive hairdo would be ideal for illicit smuggling. One commented, "Tuck something into that huge tower and even the best Homeland Security expert couldn't spot it."
BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: It's just been reported that a masked lady (see the snapshot attached) was seen hanging around the Fox executive offices. Some have speculated that it could be Valerie Plame Wilson, the outed CIA operative and the central character in the Scooter Libby case.
Could it be that she's using her CIA skills in a nefarious scheme to bring down The Simpsons? The mystery deepens.
Stay tuned for future updates.
