An avid fan of The Simpsons has divided opinion on TikTok after getting a full quote from Grandpa ‘Abe’ Simpson - a character famed for his rambling speeches - tattooed on his leg.
In a TikTok video of the design, artist and tattooist ‘jonarton’ shows off a huge tattoo, on what appears to be another man’s leg of Abe Simpson’s long-winded story about wearing “an onion on your belt, which was the style at the time.”
This tattoo is simultaneously amazing and awful! 😂😂😂 #simpsons #simpsonstattoo #tattoo
The quote comes from the classic Simpsons episode ‘Last Exit to Springfield (Season 4, Episode 17) which first aired on 11th March, 1993.
The scene involves nuclear power plant owner Mr Burns, hoping that some ‘strikebreakers’ from the 1930s can break up a group of his striking workers. This just happens to be Abe and his elderly friends, who are past their prime but can trick strikers by telling them “stories that don’t go anywhere.”
This results in this classic moment which ranks up there as one of the best in the show’s history.
