    The Simpsons showed Bart Simpson Vaping

    A mate from the U.S just told me they saw a Simpsons episode on last night with Bart Simpson trying an e-cigarette and coughing and maggie blowing vape rings.

    That can't be good, any bet the press will jump on that saying it as being a bad influence on the children.

    We watched a doco on the super rich the other night and one of the men at the polo was vaping. Only a quick pic but still it was there.

    I was waiting for the first appearance of vaping devices in Futurama. Why oh why, did Matt Groening(?) choose to put it in the hands of children, in The Simpsons?

    Well, I suppose the obvious answer to that is 'discredit e-cigs'.

    I'm just worried as the simpsons has a higher chance of being watched by younger people (teens, kids etc) which any bet the media would take out of context as say shit like 'companies are trying to make ecigs acceptable for teenage use by making it hip and look cool on shows like the simpsons'

    I guess have to wait see if anything happens

    Out of all the things to be worried about, this isn't one of them.

    Will somebody please think of the children.
    Its a cartoon. They haven't banned drinking because of it yet.
    Id be more worried about seeing them on the block or jersey shore.

    Watched the entire episode as half the story line revolves around it (I thought it was just one reference). Bart vapes to impress a girl as part of peer pressure (sigh). He also buys it from the quickie mart from Apu whom keeps saying he can't stop him (sigh) but encourages him not to buy it (yay!) but in the same breath offers him bubble gum flavor (sigh).

    It really doesn't do us many favors. Thankfully new simpsons episodes don't get the same attention they did in the late 90's.

    it perpetuates that stigma about vapers again and children. 'Can someone please thing of the Children!!', it's like ooo please.. I've had people ask me so many questions and many say 'oh i heard it's worse then smoking,' people just believe what ever the black box in the lounge room says these days. Thank god i have the internet.
