There’s a Facebook page dedicated entirely to bringing you into a weird, twisted world populated by the distorted faces of characters from The Simpsons — and it’s impossible to look away.
The Facebook page of The Best Simpsons Faces provides no additional information in its ‘About’ tab and has liked only one other page —Dr Zaius, naturally.
At the time of writing, the page has close to 34,000 likes and more than 18,000 people are talking about it on Facebook. And they are probably all discussing how these images are haunting their happy childhood memories.
The page is not even a month old and already appears as third in a search for ‘Simpsons’ pages on Facebook, behind the show’s official Facebook page and the ever-wonderful Simpsons pictures that I gone and done.
The sole content populating The Best Simpsons Faces timeline is a collection of uncontextualised stills from the show, all depicting characters at inopportune moments for their faces.
Scrolling through the collection feels like you’ve eaten some Guatemalan Insanity Peppers. Stay there long enough and you’ll be praying for a coyote with the calming voice of Johnny Cash to be your spirit guide and free you from this demonic hell.
And then you will return because, for some reason, these dodgy dystopic images are utterly compelling.
May God have mercy on us all.
