I-Mockery Game On The Simpsons!

Somebody in our message forums just let me know that in a recent episode of The Simpsons called "The Food Wife", Homer and his kids went to the E4 convention to check out all the latest games. Obviously a spoof on the E3 Expo, upon their arrival, they see a variety of upcoming games such as Guts of War III, World of Krustcraft, Dig Dug: Revelations, and more. But check out what other game they had on display:

The Simpsons pay homage to our Human Centipede game parody!

Yes indeedy, they included the Human Centipede parody game that we made! You can even see the little white Dr. Heiter at the bottom of the screen shooting up at the centipede. Of course, they couldn't show a close-up of the gameplay as I'm sure it wouldn't fly with the ratings board, but it's still pretty cool to see that one of their writers likes what we're doing.

Good news like this almost makes me want to do the Bartman.

While it would be great to see the rad-ness of I-Mockery acknowledged on national television; I don't think that's what's happened here. It seems to me that The Simpsons have just made a joke that someone else already did to better effect (I'm including the six-month episode production time.)
Only having seen the screenshot, maybe the full motion makes it clear that they are playing the I-Mockery game. If they indeed are, I think one of the animators got sick of drawing old jokes and decided to slyly give credit to the original.
Sorry to be a parade-rainer.

hate to be a potential buzz kill, but don't you think they could maybe have come up with it on their own?

Here I was thinking that scene was another example of how their humor has changed into more artistic instead of the rapid fire jokes of yore, but then there were lots of nice visual gags!

Anytime anybody says they "hate to rain on your parade," that is assuredly exactly what they want to do.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is just a case of someone coming up with the same joke (Human Centipede + Centipede the arcade game = COMEDY GOLD) independent of you guys ... Still love the Flash game, though ;)

They also had a nod to the Simpsons Game from a few years back by including "Big Super Happy Fun Fun Game" and a "Grand Theft Scratchy" game.

(To palsy blue stupid:) That's what they also say (and do) about being the "bearer of bad news", saying they told you so, etc.

I played The Simpsons Arcade,The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants,The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World,The Simpsons: Bartman Meets Radioactive Man,Krusty's Fun House,Virtual Bart,The Simpsons Game .They're somewhat good but the best humor and laugh is by watching it on their official site and on TV.

I've got to agree with the others unfortuantely. This is just a case of the simpsons writers coming up with a similar idea. to dig the knife in a little deeper (I really am sorry) television shows usually extensively research a parody before they use it for legal reasons, so not only did they not get it from you, they are probably unaware of your game's existance.

Don't fret, it just proves you aren't a sellout so you can still be all edgy and cool and stuff.

The Simpsons writers are DEFINITELY throwing a nod to YOUR game Rog! I mean, come on!
They're at a convention, and even though I haven't been to any of the conventions you guys have been. I know for a fact, I-Mockery ALWAYS has their games at conventions! So maybe one of the writers passed by your booth at Comic Con and saw the game for play on display? Anything is possible!
So, don't let the haters get you down!
Congratulations bro!!! This must be an HONOR!
