12 Days of Simpsons, Day 8: 3 great salutes to Lisa

Seattle Times ArtsPage - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 6:16am

Summer is drawing to a close, which means:

A) A holiday weekend

B)  Bumbershoot

C) More time to watch the FXX broadcast (going on now!) of all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons."

In the interest of holidays, we're letting some others do some of the heavy  lifting in this post -- which salutes  brainy Lisa Simpson, the foil for her   oblivious family members and neighbors. Lisa would be happy to know that she has lots of thoughtful fans, who have celebrated her in time-consuming ways we never could:

A) As bookworm: Check out the delightful Lisa Simpson Book Club on tumblr.

B) As feminist bada--: 5 things that prove it, on Thought Catalog.

C) As vegetarian: Why "Lisa the Vegetarian" is one of the most famous episodes of all time.
