Alleged "cost" of Maggie
on the cash register
at the beginning of "The Simpsons"
, "proof" of Matt Groening
's ultra-right-wing slant.
This was a in fact a joke from "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular", directed at those who have labeled the show as "the most liberal on television". Thus, it is not what the cash register reads the the beginning of every show.
In actuality, Maggie "costs" $847.63, the supposed amount of money required to raise a baby for one month in the US.
