The Best of Abe Simpson on ‘The Simpsons’

Abraham Jebediah "Abe" Simpson II may have been well past his physical prime for the past 34 seasons, but his wit is still just as sharp as a wooden spoon.

Of all the many uninspiring patriarchs in the Simpsons canon, ol’ Grampa Simpson is, inarguably, the most quotable — though his ramblings and sayings may usually be devoid of any reason or ties to historical fact, they are each teeming with meme potential. And, once in a liver-spotted moon, Abe drops a knowledge bomb that may not go off for decades until a mature mind can wrap itself around what “It” is.

As Springfield’s most spritely cloud-yeller, Abe rarely lets a dull moment pass when he’s given precious screen time, and, for that reliability, the fans have taken note. To that end, over in the Simpsons subreddit, the show’s super fans recently assembled to discuss which of Grampa Simpson’s most memorable moments is their favorite. Here are the top picks…
