Truth is stranger than fiction, indeed. The Dianetics NASCAR is the height of absurdity.
Nice Photoshop, Sponge!

The Simpson's is a funny show, but it is trash culture. Homer is an alcoholic, Bart is a deliquent, and the show is celebrates dsyfunction. How does Scientologist Nancy Cartwright help to "Clear the Planet" with her weekly contribution to The Simpson's? I don't see how it is ethical for a Scientologist to celebrate and promote the trash culture of The Simpson's.
The Simpsons is one of the most influential shows in T.V. history. I wouldn't call it trash culture.
BTW, Bart actually attends school quite regularly-he did skip in the episode "The Boy Who Knew Too Much" (season 5, I think), but that's the exception rather than the rule. And I don't think that the show celebrates dysfunction at all. All of the family members love each other very much, they go to church every Sunday, they eat dinner at the table.
I adore Nancy Cartwright. She is a very talented woman, and her contribution to the Simpsons probably does more good for people than her Scientology activities ever could.
Sorry to go so off-topic on this one...I love the Simpsons and must defend its honor at any cost.
