The Simpsons was already riding high on a wave of cultural relevance this week, what with that Homer-sinking-into-the-bushes gif being the perfect accompaniment to a million tweets about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's attempts to dodge reporters after President Trump fired FBI director James Comey.
But now, the longest-running comedy on TV is having a meta-moment on Twitter, thanks to an account that draws connections between The Simpsons and... well, every other movie or television show in the known universe, basically.
Tweeting from the handle @SimpsonsFilms, this new-ish account has demonstrated an incredible talent for summing up feature films and TV series in a single shot from The Simpsons. The parallels range from literal to esoteric, but whoever is running this show clearly knows their stuff. Below, we round up a few of the more remarkable picks from the small-screen side.
Game of Thrones, featuring Marge as Cersei:

And Westworld, which... WOW. Honestly? That's uncanny.
