Always up to date current events (albeit with a comical twist), The Simpsons unveiled what really happened on the now famous selfie photo by Ellen DeGeneres during her Oscar hosting duty. Packed from frame to frame with Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Ellen DeGeneres, Bradley Cooper, Peter Nyong'o Jr., brother of Lupita Nyong'o, winner of the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, as well as Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and a barely visible Jared Leto, who won Oscar for Best Supporting Actor on Sunday night, the image became an instant Internet sensation and was the first image to hit the 3.2 million retweets mark by Wednesday. However, there was a darker side to the real story behind the scene. As penned by cartoonist Matt Groening and team, The Simpsons' patriarch Homer Simpson was actually in the photo, only to be stepped on (literally) by the handsome Bradley Cooper. Bart Simpson was there too, though you'll have to find him... (hint: look for the "hair")
