Marcia Andreychuk and Joel Hamilton are no Marge and Homer, but they're certainly dining like the Simpsons. Mmm ... dining.
Serious fans of the long-running animated series, the Calgary couple is remodeling their kitchen to look like the one at 742 Evergreen Terrace, right down to the corn cob-patterned curtains.
"The Simpsons for me is actually a baby blanket," Hamilton told CBC News. "If I'm not feeling very well, if I'm depressed, if I have a bad day — I come home and pop The Simpsons on and I'm 10-years-old [again] and everything is all right."
They're saving up to purchase the avocado-green stove and fridge; in the meantime they're using brightly colored contact paper to get the appropriate effect. And once they finish? They joke about transforming the basement into Moe's Tavern.
In 1997, a full-scale replica of the Simpsons house was built in Henderson, Colorado, as the grand prize in a competition sponsored by Fox and Pepsi. Alas, the winner opted for $75,000 in cash instead.
