Published Mar 24, 2020A wise (?) man once said "You don't win friends with salad," but he was most likely incorrect. After all, leafy greens have developed a lengthy relationship between Paul McCartney and the producers of The Simpsons. After all, the rocker continually checks in to make sure Lisa Simpson is still vegetarian.
In 1995, McCartney agreed to guest on the show provided that Lisa decided to stop eating meat. Thus, the classic episode "Lisa the Vegetarian" was born.
Speaking with the Radio Times, the show's David Mirkin said some 25 years later, McCartney will not let it go. "He always checks," Mirkin explained. "And he's always surrounded by nine or 10 lawyers so it's quite frightening."
Okay so maybe you really don't win friends with salad, but you do win some life-long acquaintances and their lawyers.
