It was a sad day in Hollywood yesterday, as The Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon died at the age of 59. More and more Hollywood celebrities are dying and it is not fun to write about the celebrity deaths, especially when someone as talented as Sam Simon.

The whole drama of Katie Perry having her cameo cut from Sesame Street has now been balanced out in the universe by an equal and opposite force: the pop star will take part in this year’s Christmas episode of The Simpsons.

He’s put the public on notice that he isn’t gonna sign ANYTHING ELSE postmarked after October 20th. So, if you have any Ringo shizz lying around unsigned, better get it in the mail taco pronto. Watch Ringo tell you himself in this video on his website. Ringo’s mailman is NOT gonna like this.

Early voting is open in the swing state of Ohio, where you can register and vote on the same day! Snarkista’s sure the oversight is cutting-edge as well. Yet, as we all know, things can still go wrong when voting occurs. Here’s Homer Simpson to further enlighten us:
