“Marge Simpsons” appears in a 3500 year old egyptian coffin

Archaeologists have discovered a figure resembling a Simpsons character on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian coffin.

We’ve all watched The Simpsons, haven’t we? But we don’t usually expect it to intersect with the rich history of Egypt.

One of the most iconic characters from the popular animation is Marge Simpson, who seems to have a doppelganger from ancient Egyptian times.

Dr. Mustafa Waziri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt, detailed work that took place last year involving these ancient tombs. Archaeologists believe the tombs—found in an ancient cemetery in Minya, Egypt—were for senior officials and priests in a 3,500-year-old cemetery from the New Kingdom.

The discovery of the mummy’s coffin was announced nine months ago, but it has recently gone viral thanks to social media. But why is that? Well, all because of The Simpsons. The upper lid of the coffin has an image of a yellow-hued woman wearing a green dress with an extremely tall blue crown. Sound familiar? Well, it certainly resembles Marge Simpson’s outsized blue hair and her strapless green outfit.

A photo of the coffin was recently posted to Reddit, and everyone is saying the same thing. “Egypt predicted Simpsons,” one person joked. “Marge?” another jokingly asked, while a third remarked: “Tell me that’s not Marge Simpson.”

And a fourth had this assumption: “Egyptians and Greeks were neighbors so it’s not too crazy that she married Homer.”
