(Video) Kobe Bryant Getting Punched Out On ‘The Simpsons’ Tastes Like Burning

Yeah, I have no idea what the title of this post means, either, but it did allow me to invoke one of my favorite Simpsons references, so it’s all good.

Sure, The Simpsons might have lost some of its allure over the many years it has been on, but it still retains a considerable measure of pop culture relevance, so the fact that Kobe Bryant got knocked out in a hand-to-hand-and-a-basketball combat against a Jack Bauer-like character voiced by Keifer Sutherland in the season premiere on Sunday is still pretty cool. I think it goes without saying that the writers could have just as easily opted to go with, say, Chris Kaman instead, which would have been pretty cool in its own right.
