(Decided this belonged here rather than FAQs.

Life imitating art? Or life profiting from art? Whatever. Read it here.
Under the 'did you know' banner: "Australian breweries in the mid-1990s released their own versions of Duff beer until legal action was taken by the creators of The Simpsons and the Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

Duff beer is now a collector's item and cartons can sell for as much as $1,000 on eBay, while one empty and damaged can was for sale today for $15."


I especially liked it as Outfoxed was on TV last night- to very little fanfare. Very depressing that Murdoch once called Australia home. I can only say sorry, many many times.

Well there you go. I'm sure some of the show's creators were amused to hear it was being produced. In fact I'm surprised they didn't jump on the bandwagon and marketed it themselves.
