The former first lady and mother to President George W. Bush, who died on Tuesday at age 92, left her mark on pop-culture in 1990 when she found herself embroiled in a controversy with The Simpsons, which was in its second season. The then-first lady, speaking to People magazine, said of the Fox cartoon, “It was the dumbest thing I had ever seen, but it’s a family thing, and I guess it’s clean.” That quote ended up being shortened to the much harsher sounding "the dumbest thing (she) had ever seen," which prompted a letter from Marge Simpson to the first lady. "I recently read your criticism of my family. I was deeply hurt," wrote Marge. "Heaven knows we're far from perfect and, if truth be known, maybe just a wee bit short of normal; but as Dr. Seuss says, 'a person is a person.'" Barbara Bush responded with a "Dear Marge" letter. "How kind of you to write. I'm glad you spoke your mind; I foolishly didn't know you had one," the first lady wrote. "I am looking at a picture of you, depicted on a plastic cup, with your blue hair filled with pink birds peeking out all over. Evidently, you and your charming family — Lisa, Homer, Bart and Maggie — are camping out. It is a nice family scene. Clearly you are setting a good example for the rest of the country." Bush added: "Please forgive a loose tongue," ending her letter with "P.S. Homer looks like a handsome fella!"
