PICS: Simpsons fans in Australia are trolling the country’s biggest news station in hilarious fashion

This is even better than the time Homer put a police cordon around Flanders’ house.

7 News, one of the biggest if not the biggest news programme in Australia, has repeatedly fallen victim to a devious yet ingenious series of pranks carried out by fans of the show Down Under.

Fans of the show have been sending in descriptions of what they describe as ‘exclusive’ stories to the station, only to then reveal that the ‘exclusives’ in question are actually stories based on classic Simpsons episodes when 7 News come back with a response.

Simpsons fan site Four Finger Discount has collected a number of screenshots of messages sent to 7 News and though it is a little cheeky to say the least, we defy any Simpsons fans not to have a good chuckle at some of the examples below.

It was inevitable that they were going to get caught out eventually…
