FANS of The Simpsons have unearthed yet another instance wherein an old episode of the popular animated series seemingly predicted future events. Over the years, the show’s writers have unintentionally depicted scenes mirroring real-world occurrences long before they transpired, from Donald Trump’s presidency to the Titanic submersible disaster and the British horse meat scandal. This time, the particular scene from The Simpsons that’s causing a stir relates to what’s now being dubbed as Wonka-gate – referencing a disappointing £35 Willy Wonka-themed experience that left children utterly distraught.

In Glasgow, parents lambasted the event held in a dismal, nearly vacant warehouse, far from the promised enchanted garden brimming with oversized confections and enigmatic sculptures. Instead of the anticipated paradise of sweets, families were greeted with a meager offering of jelly babies. The debacle escalated to the extent that law enforcement had to intervene, leading to the event’s premature closure midway through the first day.

Amid the uproar surrounding the lackluster Wonka affair, an episode of The Simpsons dating back over three decades has resurfaced. In Bart’s Inner Child, which first aired in 1993, Homer fantasizes about launching his own theme park, aptly named Homerland.

Much like the ill-fated Wonka experience, Homerland proves to be a disappointment, failing to justify its exorbitant price tag. Eventually, Marge compels Homer to shutter his imaginary moneymaker due to numerous child injuries. Social media users drew parallels between Homerland and Wonka-gate, with some expressing disbelief at the uncanny resemblance. While Homerland appears marginally better, opinions vary on whether it’s worse due to its evident flaws being discernible prior to purchase.

In response to the outcry over the dismal Wonka event, the organizers, House of Illuminati, have initiated refunds for disillusioned parents whose children were reduced to tears by the lackluster affair. Police Scotland confirmed their intervention at the venue and provided guidance as crowds amassed outside, as reported by Glasgow Live.
