The Simpsons can and do buy whatever they want these days from luxury brands like Mapple, become foodies, eating at fancy restaurants on a whim, attend Dinosaur robot shows which apparently are about $100 a ticket. Not to mention vacations and such. It is clear that they are living a very luxurious lifestyle of late, especially season 23.
What's the deal with this? Did it happen gradually or all of a sudden?
Did Homer's pumpkin stock skyrocket or something?
