The Simpsons Kubrick-fied or 'Kubrick in Yellow'

Well, as it's been mostly blogs about recent acquisitions(& old ones) recently, I thought I'd change it up a little today. I'm a big fan of pop culture, absolutely LOVE seeing parodies of things I love, in other things I love. So today, I bring you 'Kubrick in The Simpsons'.
Now, there was MANY MANY reference to his films & this blog could get a little long, but I'm going to try & limit myself as best as I can.
So enjoy, Kubrick in yellow.

The Simpsons writers do wonderful work, there's been dozens of Stanley Kubrick references throughout the years(amongst hundreds of other classic films), so here's a few of my favourites.
