Beloved animated series/immortal TV overlord The Simpsons has staged a lot of crazy contests over the years: from soliciting viewers to do the writers’ work for them to a “Who Shot Mr. Burns?” contestin which no one guessed the killer, so Fox just sent the prize money to some random woman who solved absolutely nothing.

The most epic Simpsons giveaway, though, came in the ‘90s, when you could win a life-size replica of the family’s house – presumably for those die-hard fans who wanted to live out a deranged fantasy in which they’ve murdered the Simpsons and moved into their vacant home.

The interior of the house had been decked out in a loving re-creation of the titular family’s home – including the iconic couch, a fridge stuffed with Duff beer, the eerie feeling that you’re being watched by millions of unseen people, etc. – all of that attention to detail had to go, because “furnishings do not convey.” After all, what Simpsons fan would want to keep Simpsons stuff in their Simpsons house?
