Comment Dit-on "do'h!" En Français?
Every once in a while a comedy manages to transcend cultural boundaries. Today, the most successful of the few American television comedies that work outside the United States is probably The Simpsons.

This means that sometimes, non-Americans like The Simpsons for exactly the same reasons some Americans don’t—it makes fun of America.
